Our flagship model’s name refers to the exceptionally high amount of victories the greatest cyclist of all time has achieved. It’s as simple as that.
Whatever the terrain, whether you’re riding fast circuits around the lake, a nice long climb, or a tough ‘Gran Fondo’, you expect your bike to perform at the highest level in any of these conditions. This is also true for our pro riders. They want to have one bike they can use during the whole season.
The 525 exists in two geometries. The performance geometry will suit riders who prefer a race-oriented position. But instead of using spacers for riders who like a more comfortable position, we created the endurance geometry. By eliminating the amount of spacers the bike will keep its high level of stiffness during your ride.
Go for endless victory
The best racer of all time, Eddy Merckx, won a total of 525 races during his career as a professional cyclist. An unequaled record that Merckx are proud to link to their road racing speed machine. Stability, stiffness, speed, and safety reach a new dimension on the 525 Endurance. Its carbon frame and fork are built to race while offering a higher level of comfort thanks to the relaxed geometry. The 525 is incredibly stiff and features an integrated fork and seatpost for superior aerodynamics, and powerbox asymmetrical chainstays that can handle every watt you can throw down. This top-shelf machine is a love letter to the most decorated professional career in the history of the sport.
CT scans for all 525 forks and frames
Eddy Merckx Cycles is adding a new string to its bow. All 525 forks and frames will be CT-scanned. In this way, Eddy Merckx Cycles seeks to demonstrate its commitment to quality.
CT scans (Computed Tomography, using X-ray technology) of the forks and frames will be carried out during both the R&D (Research & Development) and QC (Quality Control) phases. As a result, riders can have complete confidence as they push themselves to the limit on their Eddy Merckx racing bikes.
Stability is in the details
How do you make frames even stiffer, stronger and lighter?
By looking out for all the details. The 525 High Strength Crown ensures an easy transfer at the top of the fork (from the fork crown to the fork tube). This unique design avoids weak spots and loss of stiffness.
