Like an open lane on a scenic turn, Merlin's premier road frame offers an exceptional cycling experience. Built with a custom selection of Reynolds butted 3/2.5 oversized cold-worked titanium tube set, the Extralight XLR is, as its name implies, remarkably light, stiff, and resilient, offering discerning rides something truly unique.
Elegant by Design
With signature seatstays, oversized and fully ovalized chainstays, the Extralight XLR 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 and comfortable ride.
Best in Class Finish
The Extralight's beautifully handcrafed head tube badge, 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.
