2017 Pinarello Mercurio Sora Bike
For anyone who is an avowed commuter during the week, but likes to get out on longer weekend rides, the Pinarello Mercurio Disk would be a great bike to pick to do that double duty. This Italian hybrid has the practicality to work well as an everyday city rider, and the lightweight performance to help you hang with the Saturday morning chain gang.
Pinarello have made the Mercurio Disk using their 24HMUD carbon fiber which is light as well as durable, making this the sort of bike that you can count on to handle the rumble of a gravel road or the imperfections of big city downtown streets. They have also used their asymmetric design, giving the drivetrain side a slightly more robust layup to handle the greater pedaling forces on that side. It’s quite a sleek looking frame with a curvy profile, which gives it that Italian flair we all love.
Every day utility is not always something we expect from a classy Italian bike, yet that is exactly what the Mercurio offers. Starting with post mount disc brakes that can support up to 160mm rotors, what will be most exciting for those who want to use this as a commuter and gravel bike or even a winter weather training bike, it can accommodate 28mm ties even with the mud guards. The Italian threaded bottom bracket adds to the practicality of the bike and the internal cable routing keeps things looking neat and sleek.
The Pinarello Mercurio Disk offers a wide range of uses for the active cyclist, and combines its versatility with a real racing bike feel and performance. Available in four sizes and three color schemes, the Mercurio will be a great way to get excited about commuting and checking out some unexplored paths at the weekend.
