Robust by Design

Designed with s-bend seatstays, oversized hand contoured chainstays, the Telluride XLM 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 Telluride XLM 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 Telluride XLM beautifully engraved head tube badge, best in class finish, and meticulous welds are a testament to Merlin's commitment to frame quality and esthetics.
