Mendocino Adventure

Like its Northern California namesake, a coastal town known for its seaside cliffs, waterfront trails, and a thriving arts scene, Merlin's Mendocino is an adventurer's delight, incorporating the stiff yet supple qualities of a gravel - mountain bike into a trail-ready frame that's as smooth on dirt as it is on pavement.

Innovative BY DESIGN

Designed utilizing s-bend hourglass seatstays, oversized hand contoured s-bend chainstays, the Mendocino Adventure blends remarkable acceleration, superb climbing, precision descending and lasting comfort into a clean, elegant design.

Cold Worked Titanium

The careful shaping and cold working of the Extralight's oversized tubeset results in a 45% increase to the titanium's remarkable strength, enhancing bottom bracket stiffness while delivering a smooth, comfortable ride.

Best in Class Finish

The Mendocino's beautifully engraved head tube badge, best in class finish, and meticulous welds are a testament to Merlin's commitment to frame quality and esthetics. Complimented by a hand crafted Merlin Titanium Adventure fork, the Mendocino delivers precision handling while at the same time reducing trail vibration.
