Details

The best racer of all time, Eddy Merckx, won a total of 525 races during his career as a professional cyclist. An unequaled record that Merckx are proud to link to their road racing speed machine. Stability, stiffness, speed, and safety reach a new dimension on the EM 525 Performance. Its carbon frameset is built to race and features an integrated fork and seatpost for superior aerodynamics, and powerbox asymmetrical chainstays that can handle every watt you can throw down. Shifting duties are handled by SRAM's 11-speed RED eTAP groupset, while the slippery Edco Optima Albula wheels roll with uninhibited purpose beneath you. A comfortable Prologo saddle and Deda cockpit round out the build on this top-shelf machine that is a love letter to the most decorated professional career in the history of the sport.

Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.

Electronic shifting delivers exceptional performance.

Shifting Performance

Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.

Electronic shifting is customizable.

Customization

Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.

Electronic shifting is light on the maintenance.

Dependability

Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
