Spec info BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team – team bikes
The team bikes of the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team will be equipped with the latest Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupsets.
To give the riders detailed information about their performance, market leader SRM will be supplying their latest generation of power-cranks and PC-8 bike-computers. The SRM hollow carbon crank-arms are extremely stiff, offering unparalleled power-transfer and helping to drop the system weight below a standard Dura-Ace crank without power-system!
With regards to wheels, the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team trusts the latest generation of FULCRUM’s superb SPEED wheel series. The SPEED 40T wheels are the ultimate all-rounder, with a weight of less than 1,25kg per set and a perfect balance of low weight, high stiffness and suitable aerodynamic. Sprinters and breakaway racers will focus on the SPEED 55T with more deep-section rim-profiles, offering an improved aero-performance and slightly higher stiffness, while sacrificing a bit of weight.
In terms of tires, the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team uses Continental Competition Pro LTD 25mm handmade tubulars. These tyres are known for ultimate grip, superfast rolling and high puncture resistance.
FSA and Vision will supply the cockpits and seat-posts. After an intense testing period during the winter and spring, the majority of the team-roster have decided to swap to the one-piece Vision METRON stem/handlebar combos, which offers superior aerodynamic performance and improve stiffness during sprints. The team’s climbers will choose the FSA cockpits for their incredible weight and stiffness.
Saddles are supplied by PROLOGO – all with carbon rails and carbon shells and equipped with PROLOGO’s unique CPC anti-friction system; even the brand-new Dimension saddle will be provided, a shorter saddle that offers a higher level of comfort and improved aerodynamics.
