Description

"The Cannibal" never needs a formal introduction, but his collections of bicycles — produced with some of the most advanced technological innovations — are so good that they deserve to be carefully addressed. The Quick-Step boys were in on the Belgian's secrets from the get-go, as they rode the EMX-5's race-oriented platform for the 2010 season. The frameset blends low weight, stiffness, and speed into a complete race-ready package.

Starting with the frame itself, Merckx's EMX-5 was constructed using a full carbon laminate layup. Essentially, this technique involves layering the carbon fiber sheets together in ways that maximize the strength and rigidity of the frame. This layup is combined with Merckx's structural reinforcement design, which places the high modular (46HM3K) stiffness fibers in strategic areas for added reinforcement. These fibers are used in conjunction with high-strength fibers at force-load-heavy zones, such as the bottom bracket and head tube junctions. By using these methods together, Merckx engineers were able to add material where it's needed for increased rigidity, while removing material at less flex-prone areas to keep the overall weight as low as possible. This is the same technique used for all of Merckx's top-end carbon road frames, as it yields the ideal combination of stiffness, low weight, and vertical compliance.

The EMX-5 provides a comfortable ride, yet it still possesses the race-tuned characteristics that are necessary for competitive road racing. Aside from the frame's optimized layup schedule, the fork has also been designed to deliver maximum stability and speed. The carbon blades flare to a wide shape toward the 1-1/8in steerer, which works to both cut wind drag and provide precise handling up front. Similarly, at the rear end of the frame, both the seatstays and chainstays were designed with handling and power transfer in mind. Their slender shapes provide the ideal blend of comfort and transmission of power directly to the rear wheel.

The Merckx EMX-5 Road Bike Frame - 2010 is available in sizes 44, 50, 52, 53, 55, 57, 58, and 60cm and in the colors Black, Red, and White. Please note that the frame requires a 70mm Italian bottom bracket.
