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 road bike into a trail-ready frame that's as smooth on dirt as it is on pavement. 


Innovative BY DESIGN

With hourglass seatstays, oversized, double-butted, and tapered chainstays, the Extralight blends remarkable acceleration, superb climbing, 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 Extralight's beautifully engraved head tube, best in class finish, and meticulous welds are a testament to Merlin's commitment to frame quality and esthetics. Complimented by an Enve high-modulus carbon fork, the Extralight delivers nimble handling while reducing road vibration.
