Eddy Merckx EMX-3 review

Eddy Merckx EMX-3
Cycling Weekly Verdict

Handling is simply excellent, lively and precise, without ever slipping into the realms of twitchy. It's a class act. If there is one downside it's the weight, but as that equates to more carbon and therefore a tougher frame, it's a fair pay-off. Merckx has come up with a great frame worthy of your money if you like the Belgian feel.

Reasons to buy

  • +

Eddy Merckx uses an unorthodox yet logical way to classify its range. Firstly by frame material, and then by geometry, which is effectively a definition of use. Our EMX-3 is carbon (‘E' series), and elite geometry (‘MX'), so built for racing.
