Flatten hills, smooth out rough asphalt, and conquer that epic ride with aplomb atop the Mekk Potenza 5.5. With a monocoque carbon frame, plus full carbon aero-bladed fork, for a chassis, its contoured tubing, oversized bottom bracket, and deep profiled chain stays equate to optimum power transfer. But Mekk has also provided relaxed geometry, with a taller head tube and slightly shorter top tube when compared to their classic road bike offerings. What does that mean? Comfort, plain and simple. Shimano Ultegra 10-speed shifters and derailleurs plus their RS30 wheels let you know this bike means business while the Ritchey cockpit and seatpost can take whatever you dish out.
Mekk is the brainchild of Mark Edwards (ME) and Ken Knight (KK), a pair of Brits with extensive experience in high-performance cycling at both the racing and production end of the spectrum, and they've delivered a winner in the Potenza no matter if you're facing an epic gran fondo or simply have a hankering for long days in the saddle on your favorite roads.
