Shandy Gels £0.95

TORQ have partnered with Adnams brewery of Southwold once again to produce yet another LIMITED EDITION shandy-flavoured gel. The TORQ Summer Shandy gel has been crafted using a genuine Adnams’ single hop Golden Pale Ale called ‘Mosaic’. This refreshing brew uses a single American hop bred from Simcoe and Nugget hops, taking the best of these varieties to provide a clean bitterness and outstanding flavour. Mosaic has been blended seamlessly blended into TORQ’s optimal 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose formulation, so that it performs faultlessly and works competently as part of the TORQ Fuelling System. At less than 0.5% alcohol, you don’t need to worry about getting drunk – you would need to consume more than 60 of these gels to drink the equivalent of half a pint of the actual ale!

Muc Off Polishing Cloth £5.99

Muc-Off’s Premium Microfibre cloths aren’t just cloths they’re a gateway to effortless cleaning, drying and polishing power at your fingertips! Muc-Off Microfibre cloths contain an amazing ‘split-fibre’ technology, that vastly increases surface area absorbency to easily eliminate smears and blemishes. As well as this, our microfibre’s trap dirt deep in the pile of the cloth which helps to avoid the chance of swirling, which could ultimately lead to damaged paintwork. Because our cloths are made up of very small fibres, you’ll be cleaning at a much deeper level, meaning that whether it’s interiors or exteriors, bikes or cars, you can be sure you are removing the dirt and grime! The Muc-Off R&D team thought of everything and made sure that these handy cleaning cloths are machine washable, meaning they can be used time and time again!

Silca Italian Army Knife Multitool £30.00 – £40.00
The Italian Army Knife, a very SILCA take on the traditional multi-tool. We’ve addressed the things that frustrate us with conventional multi-tools, while keeping the layout which fits so conveniently in the SILCA EOLO Wallet or Seat Roll Premio.

The IAK as we have come to know and love this product combines fully forged mid-length tools with forged aluminum side plates and full stainless steel hardware. The mid-length tool design is long enough to provide access to recessed fasteners, but short enough not to experience twist or damage under moderate torque as experiences on longer tools. All tools are forged rather than bent from hex stock, this method of construction is more expensive, but worth it on the side of the road!

Mid length tools also allow us to position the tools within the same plane, this reduces the thickness of the overall package by half. Double chromed tools and fully stainless steel hardware and bushings guarantee a long life without corrosion (the number 2 killer of multi-tools is corrosion, number 1 is loss!) Forged aluminum sidebars contain rare-earth magnets for holding a spare chain connector.

— Forged and machined sidebars with integrated chain-connector storage.
— Tredici (Tre-dee-chee)13 forged and plated tools Hex 2/2.5/3/4/5/6/8 + Torx 10/20/25 + PH2/Flat + DiscPadSpreader.

Merlin Nitro Aero 9100 – £2,299.00
Limited Edition Merlin Nitro Aero with a full Dura Ace 9100 groupset and wheels.

Merlin Cycles are proud to launch the new Limited-Edition Nitro Aero road bike with full Dura Ace 9100 groupset. Our new Nitro Aero carbon fibre road bike has been developed to be super-stiff and responsive making it ready to race straight out of the box; each tube profile and frame junction has been specifically designed and constructed to cut through the air more efficiently encouraging you to attack the bunch and hold your speed in an aerodynamic tuck. We’re proud of our flagship aero frameset and are pleased to be able to offer it in a number of configurations to suit your riding style and your budget; now the limited-edition Nitro Aero Dura Ace 9100 offers you the ultimate custom build.

The wind-cheating Nitro Aero frame and fork includes all the design-features you’d expect in a modern aero road bike including an aero profiled down tube, smooth integration from the fork crown into the frame head tube and down tube, an aero profiled seat tube and big boxy chainstays blending seamlessly into the large bottom bracket area for a super-stiff cockpit that enables you to transfer all of your power through the frame. Internal cable routing contributes to clean lines and an uncluttered silhouette while an aero seatpost specific to the Nitro Aero frameset fits seamlessly into the seatpost clamp.

The Merlin Nitro Aero doesn’t just hold its straight line speed well but also handles brilliantly on the open road and has been engineered to help you descend and corner in confidence. This agile bike keeps you comfortable too, with a small amount of compliance built into the seatstays you’ll feel encouraged to stay in the saddle longer while your average speeds keep on improving.


This limited-edition version of our Nitro Aero called for the very best in componentry and so we made sure we specced exactly that. Featuring full Dura Ace 9100 the Nitro Aero showcases Shimano’s premier mechanical groupset made up of super-lightweight materials, the most precise shifting gears, brake calipers that are more confidence inspiring than ever before and the best-looking componentry that has been developed to date.

No high-end carbon road bike is complete without an equally capable pair of wheels and when we put together the limited-edition Nitro Aero we knew we wanted to spec a wheelset that would be light, smooth and durable and would allow you to accelerate quickly and be able to out-climb the competition. The new Shimano Dura-Ace C24 carbon laminate clincher wheelset featuring lightweight titanium hubs will help you ride faster and more efficiently complimenting the Nitro Aero in both performance and looks.

To complete this ultimate bike build we’ve included Continental GP 4000 tyres, a choice of Deda bars and stems and a choice of Selle Italia saddles to help ensure all contact points are tailored specifically to you. Whether you want to beat the competition at your weekly crit race, want to improve your bike split at that upcoming triathlon or are simply looking for the ultimate aero road bike to enjoy on the open road and want to be the first to the café stop our limited-edition Merlin Nitro Aero Dura Ace 9100 is the perfect bike for you.
