Merckx + Belgium
The EMX-525 is named after the total number of victories Eddy had during the course of his race career. Both ultra stiff and light, it uses a combination of shape design and a unique carbon fiber mix that barely distorts or twists at all. It means that virtually all of a rider’s power is converted into rapid forward motion, and there is little or no wastage.
As the name indicates, the SanRemo76 is meant as a tribute to Merckx’s unbroken record of 7 victories in la Primavera. This high-performance race bike is designed and built for racers who focus on speed. Its longer top tube and lower head tube ensure a leaning forward aerodynamic position. Combined with the compact seatstays and oversized BB this accommodates a more aggressive riding style.
Mourenx69 refers to Merckx’s win in the 17th stage of the 1969 Tour de France. This 214.5 km epic ride from Luchon to Mourenx provided the inspiration for an exceptional endurance race bike. Its asymmetric chainstay ensures perfect balance while its downsized BB and longer seatstays provide maximum shock absorption. The bike also has a slightly higher head tube and shorter top tube enabling a more upright position, which is crucial for long distance races.
Designed for speed, the ETT is the ultimate time machine. The unique UCI approved ‘Venturi Power Box’ actually reduces the pressure behind the frame, so giving you extra impetus going formward. It’s a real effect, provided you are going fast enough!
With the Eeklo70 the Eddy Merckx Cycles company ventures into a whole new field. This is indeed our first cyclo-cross bike. It is sturdy yet well balanced and carefully tuned to the needs of those who enjoy adventurous rides far away from the beaten tracks.
