Eddy Merckx Bicycles Model Introductions

 

EM525

Go for endless victory

The best racer of all time won a total of 525 races during his career as a professional. An unequalled record that we are proud to link to the current top model in our collection.

The EM525 is a new top-of-the-line model and is available in a Performance and an Endurance version, so that you can choose the geometry you prefer. In addition, this top bike you can select in disc or caliper versions. This bike features a 60 ton carbon- our stiffest in collection. Designed for the rider looking for top ride experience, and top speed, and acceleration. This bike is the best of the best.

SanRemo76

Go for impressive speed

Eddy Merckx took part in the Milan-San Remo race 10 times, winning it seven times, with the last being in 1976. Another unique record. La Primavera is recognized as a sprinters’ classic, which is what links it to the speedy San Remo 76.

The San Remo 76 is a true high-performance sprinter’s racing bike where the aerodynamics, stiffness and power transfer are crucial in achieving the ultimate sporting ride experience. We use a 40 ton carbon here to offer slightly more compliance that the 525, while still providing a stiff powerful ride experience. For road racers, crit riders and those looking for aero, this bike does it all. For 2017 with option, disc or caliper.

Mourenx69

Go for long escapes

Mourenx69 refers to Merckx winning the seventh stage of the 1969 Tour de France. This heroic 214.5km ride from Luchon to Mourenx provides the inspiration for a racing bike specially designed for long distances.

This frame also has a slightly higher head tube and shorter top tube giving the racer a more upright position, which is crucial for long distance races. The Mourenx69 is an ideal endurance racing bike with a perfect balance of stiffness and compliance. We use a 40 ton carbon here to offer slightly more compliance that the 525, while still providing a stiff powerful ride experience. This bike is perfect for the rider looking to take on long escapes, climb in comfort and spend all day in saddle without sacrificing performance. Available in disc and caliper options.

Sallanches64

Go for carbon, and never go back

In 1964, Eddy Merckx became the amateur world champion in Sallanches, France. This marked the start of his extraordinarily successful career as a cyclist.

The Sallanches64 is a carbon racing bike that combines compliance with a high level of stiffness. This versatile racing machine is the ideal mix of high performance and endurance. And this frame has also been given a special internal treatment so that the inside looks just as clean as the outside, resulting in a weight of barely 900 grams. This frame uses a 30 ton carbon, for optimal comfort and compliance. The geometry is what we refer to as “gran fondo”, a perfect mix of comfort and performance.  One bike that does all well without breaking the budget. Available in Disc or caliper options.

Milano72

Go for female excellence

The Milano 72 takes us back to the hard-fought victory by Eddy Merckx in the 1972 Giro d’Italia. After winning four stages he finished first in Milan to reinforce his supremacy as the top tour rider.

For female racers who want to give their utmost, this high-performance Milano 72 is the right answer. This ladies’ racing bike was designed specifically to complement female geometry. This frame uses a 30 ton carbon, for optimal comfort and compliance. A woman’s specific geo, shorter top tube and longer head-tube, this bike is confidence inspiring. The geometry is what we refer to as “gran fondo”, a perfect mix of comfort and performance.  One bike that does all well without breaking the budget. Available in Disc or caliper options.

BlockHaus67

Go for the superior ascent

Until the 1967 Giro, Eddy Merckx was known mainly as a sprinter. By winning the very tough 12th mountain stage, finishing at the Block Haus, he also made his name as an outstanding climber and tour rider.

The BlockHaus67 has an ultra-light (1,150 grams) and stiff aluminum frame, with a carbon fork (360 grams). Eddy Merckx Cycles has a rich history as an aluminum frame builder and is therefore launching this premium aluminum racing bike that can compete on results with the best alloy racing machines in the world. The BlockHaus67 truly combines outstanding stiffness-to-weight values with great compliance. Ideal as a light climber that stands up to hard knocks. This crit racers, road racers or anyone looking for a performance bike in Alloy.

Montreal74

Go for feminine victory

In Montreal in 1974, Eddy Merckx won the first World Championship to be held in the Americas. That was his fourth rainbow jersey in 10 years. One newspaper commented: ‘Eddy Merckx didn’t discover America, America discovered Eddy Merckx.’

The Montreal74 has an ultra-light (1,150 grams) and stiff aluminum frame, with a carbon fork (360 grams). This premium alloy frame has a ladies’ geometry and is extremely versatile offering both endurance and high-performance racers the perfect ride.

 

 

Strasbourg71

Go for off-road stability

During the 1971 Tour de France, Eddy Merckx won the first stage in Strasbourg and then a few weeks later rode into Paris on 18 July wearing the yellow jersey. The stage to Strasbourg ended on a gravel track where Merckx narrowly beat Roger De Vlaeminck in a sprint

The Strasbourg71 is therefore the ideal Gravel bike for off-road adventures. Available in aluminum or carbon this gravel bike you can ride not only on the road, but also on rougher paths, even single-track!  A multi-faceted bike that can take a few knocks, meaning that you can also use it as a commuter racing bike to travel to work, utilizing its rack and fender mounts.

Eeklo70

Go for the unbeaten paths

In Eeklo Eddy Merckx won a unique cyclo-cross competition. He won this two-man race with a real cyclo-cross specialist: Eric De Vlaeminck. It attests to Merckx’ multiple talents as a racer, and also his character, his determination to win any competition he took part in.

The Eeklo70 is a die-hard cyclo-cross bike that is offered in both carbon and aluminum, disc and non disc options.  Both versions are stiff and light and ready to be ridden.

Copenhagen77

Go for top speed tracks

For Eddy Merckx, track competitions were always the ideal preparation for the spring classics. This included the European Championships that he won as a team with his trusted friend, Patrick Sercu.

The Copenhagen77 is a track bike with no compromises: ultra-stiff and aero-designed. Both the carbon and the aluminum versions are built to deliver great results on the track. The homage to the famous Molteni orange is clearly visible in the design of these frames.

Lugano68

Go for the time of your life

Even before he broke the world hour record in Mexico, it had been clear for some time that Eddy Merckx was an outstanding time trialist. For example, as a 23-year old in Lugano, he claimed the Lugano Grand Prix individual time trial in a record time.

The Lugano68 therefore offers everything a triathlete is looking for in a frame: a fantastic fitting combined with top aerodynamics.

Liege75

Go for victorious steel

Eddy Merckx won Liège-Bastogne-Liège a total of five times. In 1975, he won this oldest of the one-day classics, La Doyenne, in a Molteni rainbow jersey, which confirmed his total supremacy.

The Liege75 forms part of the Heritage Line and is a modern, high-performance steel bike. That is why high-quality Columbus steel was chosen to make it. The frame design is, of course, inspired by the well-known Molteni orange, but this racing bike is far more than just a replica.

Roubaix70

Go for steeled style

In 1970 the Paris-Roubaix classic was even more the ‘Hell of the North’: the weather was dreadful and Eddy had only had one day to recover from the previous competition. Nonetheless, he succeeded in finishing the Roubaix stage more than six minutes ahead of the field.

Just like the Liege75, this high-performance steel bike forms part of the Heritage Line. Inspired by the stylish Faema colors, this racing bike also proves that the combination of high-quality Columbus steel and a carbon fork provides a unique cycling experience.
