The CF2 framed 7000-E transforms Merida’s race bike into a much more versatile machine. One that’s just as happy cruising on the club run as it is on the race circuit. It has lost some of the whippet like handling traits of the lighter framed version but the upshot is a big increase in ride comfort. And at this price point, few brands can compete with the Scultura on spec and value.
