Entry into the Mekk world comes in the form of the lightweight aluminium Pinerolo. We believe that just because a bike has a budget price tag it shouldn’t have a budget ride.
So whether you’re starting out with your first road bike or looking for a lightweight hi-spec race machine the Pinerolo range has what you need.
The classic fit design of the lightweight Poggio was conceived to produce the perfect all-rounder.
We’ve evolved the Poggio’s frame to incorporate full internal cable routing and Di2 compatibility. Our new tapered head tube is matched by a lightened all-carbon 1.25 to 1.5 tapered fork.
The down tube profile is bi-ovalised to mate perfectly with our oversized bottom bracket shell and deeper profiled chain stays.
The new stiffer lighter chassis combines responsive handling and smoothness. Whether you want to race, commute or challenge yourself to an epic sportive we think the Poggio will give you the best ride for your money.
The Endurance specific Potenza takes it's design cues from our flagship Primo. The frame has the same stiff character from its head and down tube to the oversized bottom bracket shell and the deep profiled chain stays.
That ensures to optimum power transfer, which we’ve balanced with our relaxed endurance fit. We’ve added a little height to the height tube and shortened the top tube. The more relaxed ride position will keep you comfortable throughout the most epic of rides.
The Monocoque carbon frame is designed for lightweight and smooth riding comfort. Full internal cable routing and a full carbon aero bladed fork complement the smooth lines of our endurance design frame.
The race ready Primo features an aero optimised frameset, with full internal cable routing and Di2 compatibility. Under the skin we only use the finest grade of Japanese carbon fibre. The construction and lay-up has been refined by our engineering team and prototyped and tested from within our own production facility.
Up front our aero bladed fork has an all carbon tapered 1.25 to 1.5 inch steerer. In testing it’s proven both stiffer and lighter than a standard composite alloy fork found on the competition.
We want no power loss through frame flex from the Primo so we’ve oversized and profiled our rear chain stays so that every watt of power you put in is delivered to the rear wheel in the pursuit of out and out speed.
The Primo’s race honed geometry and aero profiles make it the ideal companion for the competitive rider. It’s designed to be bullet fast with no compromises
mds: Multi-Directional Stiffness
Carbon fibre used in different direction in the mould allows us to engineer the chainstays to be stiff and highly efficient when placed under the loads from pedalling, and yet have less stiffness in the direction that offers a comfortable ride.
Carbon Fibre Composite
Fibres of carbon are wound into a yarn, which is then woven into a flexible cloth-like material. The weave of the fibres, and the type of the fibres varies throughout each of our frames, allowing us to achieve the ride characteristics we want. This cloth-like material is then held in place by an epoxy resin, turning carbon fibre into carbon fibre composite. Carbon fibre by itself would make a bicycle that slumped down like a cloth bag... Only when it becomes a composite can it become stiff.
A hybrid of Greek and French that means quite simply, single-shell. Basically it means that the structure of our frames is all one piece, and that one piece is designed to carry all of the loads and forces given to the bike when riding. This one piece construction allows significant weight savings, but also allows stiffness to be put where it's needed, and reduced where it is beneficial for comfort reasons.
Our tapered steerer tube on our forks. It connects your stem to the main part of the forks, and also forms part of the rotational interface between the forks and the frame which allos you to steer. We use 1.5 inch bearings at the bottom of our headsets for long life and their greater load carrying capability, whilst we use a 1.25 inch bearing at the top for a reduction in weight. The tapered shape of the steerer tube also leads to a significant increase in stiffness in all directions, giving you more precise handling and steering.
