“Merak is the new De Rosa top-of-the-range for performance, that today naturally
matches with the Protos model but with great differences in terms of weight, being
definitely lighter (the polished frame weights 800 gr) and in terms of design, thanks to a more modern and slightly slope geometry. Merak is the perfect bicycle for who want to ride uphill, in plain or downhill, for who want to run a granfondo at really high level, for who want to run a Giro d’Italia or for who want to do high quality bicycle tourism.
I don’t like to define Merak an “all round” bike but, looking at the different activities it can lend itself, it’s definitely the best adjective for it.
For the De Rosa family, Merak evoke the 2000, the year when it won the world
championship in Plouay with Romāns Vainšteins, pedaling with the Merak metal frame. It is a key product for the De Rosa frame line and, for this reason, in a retrofuturism perspective, we decided to name Merak our next top-of-the-range product.”
