Being responsive and using your power efficiently are key to the design of the Merak Evolution and this comes through in the oversized bottom bracket and headtube areas which transfer every watt of power into forward motion. And of course, like any De Rosa, it looks amazing and will be the pride of your club run!
The De Rosa tuned geometry strikes the perfect balance making it excellent for head down racing or just embarking on an epic sportive ride. Manufactured from Hi modulus carbon fibre, the frame is light, yet stiff. The bike, with its aero Tricolour carbon seat post and head-turning graphics features some of the latest design features, innovations and components. Campagnolo supply the groupset thanks to their Athena 11 speed and Fulcrum supply the wheels which are wrapped with Continental Ultra Sport tyres. With 22 gears available to you, you should find a gear for every cycling occasion or challenge.
Also, the BB30 chainset is a compact and provides lower gearing for better climbing and means even on hillier terrain you shouldn't find yourself longing for a triple.
The Merak Athena is a must for the rider wanting more out of their cycling be it from racing or competing in a sportive event and is a pleasure to ride.
Each Merak is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition.
Please note that the Black/Green Line option is shown with Fulcrum R5 wheels, R3 will be supplied.

About the De Rosa brand
Few bike brands can claim to be as beautifully crafted or as lovingly made as De Rosa – so we're understandably excited about stocking them @ Wiggle. Formed in 1953, De Rosa is synonymous with everything cyclists know and love about Italian bikes: passion, master craftsmanship, skill and precision. Whether it's the hand-finished steel Neo Primato frameset which catches your eye or the Merak Carbon, all bikes are created with the same close attention to detail by the family-run De Rosa company, which is based in Milan. These are the bikes which Ugo de Rosa dreamt of building as a teenager. More than half a century later, his dreams are reality and countless champions have ridden – and still ride – his prestigious bikes. His love and enthusiasm for cycling is reflected in every single bike made. A De Rosa bike is the kind of bike you buy and keep forever...
The size chart below will get you on the right size bike. Experienced riders may also wish to refer to the geometry chart for more detail.
Getting the Right Fit
At Wiggle we measure each of our bikes to build accurate size charts for our customers. Our qualified team of mechanics then individually check each order, against measurements supplied by you, to ensure the size chosen is correct. Another reason you can have complete confidence when buying a bike from Wiggle!
If you are on the change over between sizes both options will fit. Racers and experienced riders would usually select a smaller size as this offers quicker handing. A larger bike offers more stability and is more suited to new and intermediate riders.
