Description

Ride like a legend

Eddy Merckx is a true cycling legend. With more than 500 victories to his name, Mr. Merckx and his talented team of engineers know what it takes to design a fast, reliable, and lightweight race machine. The EMX Shimano 105 Complete Road Bike is the result of their passion and drive to create a race ready, do anything machine.

The EMX was handmade using a purpose-specific blend of carbon and laminate fibers. Essentially, the 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 technology, which places T700 Tenax and UTS Tenax fibers in strategic areas for added stiffness. These fibers are used in conjunction with high-strength fibers at these force-load-heavy zones, such as the bottom bracket and head tube junctions. By using these techniques together, Merckx engineers were able to add material where it's needed for increased rigidity, while removing material at less flex-prone areas, thus keeping the overall weight as low as possible.

Merckx balanced these rigid junctions throughout the frame using K210 aramid fibers, which provide a bit of dampening. The EMX was then finished off with a top layer of a T300 Tenax for a smooth overall aesthetic. These are the same methods used for all of Merckx's top-end carbon road frames, as they yield the ideal combination of stiffness, low weight, and vertical compliance.

With a slightly relaxed geometry, the EMX provides a comfortable ride, yet still possesses race-tuned characteristics necessary for competitive road racing. Aside from the frame's optimized layup schedule, the Easton fork has also been designed to deliver maximum stability and speed. The blades flare out 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.

To complement the EMX frame, the drivetrain is a full repertoire of durable Shimano 105 components. This middle-of-the-line package provides durable, consistent shifting for long road rides or tours. You'll roll on Shimano Wheels with Michelin Pro 4 tires. The cockpit consists of Deda components -- handlebar, stem, and seatpost, while the seat is a Selle Italia Carbonario.

The Merckx EMX/Shimano 105 Complete Road Bike is available in sizes 41cm, 44cm, 47cm, 50cm, 53cm and in the colors Blue, White/blue, and White/red.

What is this, an '08/'09? Must be from one of the last pre-Pinarello years from the old-style labels. Actually, this looks like the pre-Pinarello EXM, not EMX frame.

Hey,
You are correct that this is an 08/09 frame, although according to the manufacturer sku it is the EMX. Hope this helps.
