The Merak from De Rosa is its top of the line product for 2011. Currently the frame, with its “New Merak” project focuses on the use of carefully selected eye-level carbon fiber composite materials matched with a specific resin that takes on different features to fully develop and strengthen its performance, is underway. The outcome of this project ensures high rigidity, lightness, durability and maximum aero elasticity of performance.

The new Merak could be fitted with a BB30 central movement and with its “High Moment Inertial Tafer” steering tubes, which could adapt the use of 1.1/2 bearings and the larger fork designed for it. An elliptical saddle support of 25mm adjustment is also integrated into its seat pillar for aerodynamics.

With massive seatstays and chainstays, its shape and design is remarkable with eye-catching graphics to go along with its unique color scheme that features glitter in a starduster finish.
