Road Performance: The Whole Package

Why We Love It
In the world of titanium, the folks at Merlin are true...wizards. They began making state-of-the-art titanium frames back in the 80's and have been continuously honing the craft ever since. These days, the frames are made right down the road from us here in Boulder Colorado! The welds of every extralight frame are stunningly clean, which form together the classic tube shapes on these beautiful frames. The Extralight has top-notch power transfer and corners confidently and smooth. In our current world of carbon being at the forefront of consideration for performance road cyclists, it's exciting to remember that titanium can deliver just as responsive and lightweight of a ride with the added smooth demeanor of titanium. Bonus: titanium frames are going to look good for years to come with their incredibly durable character. Wouldn't we all want to be less stressed when the stranger is struggling to lean their bike near yours at the coffee shop?
