EDDY MERCKX BICYCLE!! (525) *DOES THE NAME HOLD UP FOR THE VALUE???*
525 Disc Force AXS 52D03Bs(XL)
525. That’s the amount of victories Eddy Merckx achieved in his career. It’s an incredible number of wins. In doing so, he performed at the very highest level in cycling. Merckx wasn't called ‘the Cannibal’ for nothing. This bike is a tribute to Merckx's insatiable hunger to win and to his 525 victories.
Our 525 is ready for its next win. This bike is at the summum of balancing weight, aerodynamics and comfort. It’s fast and feisty and it’s made for racing cobbles and battling the wind during the Belgian classics.
The front of the bike is stiff and aerodynamic due to integrated cabling and aero handlebars, while the seat stays with the recognizable bends provide maximum riding comfort. These features make the 525 a performance focused and responsive bike that guarantees smooth handling in the corners.
The 525 frame set was designed with aerodynamic performance in mind by using aero optimized tube shapes, a fork crown integrated into the down tube and a single piece aero cockpit. The aero seat post is held in place by an internal seat post clamp. The high-end carbon fiber lay-up used in this frame brings the weight down despite all aerodynamic features.
Proprietary Eddy Merckx bent seat stays improve comfort and compliance while guaranteeing optimal power transfer and stiffness. This seat stay design is the staple of carbon fiber Eddy Merckx bikes, creating a distinctive and easily recognizable look.
The fully integrated cable routing has multiple benefits. The biggest performance benefit comes from improved aerodynamics, because there are no cables disturbing the airflow. Moreover, the cables are hidden and tucked away, so they don’t interfere with accessories like handlebar bags. Lastly, it makes for a beautiful, clean cockpit.
