The Mirax Finiss is a stunning road bike that has been constructed with functionality in mind. Weighing in at only 28lbs, Merax have done a wonderful job at ensuring that the bike is both extremely lightweight and maneuverable. As with all of the road bikes that Merax produces, the Finiss has been designed to be suitable for beginner riders, those who have owned a bike before but would like a cheaper alternative and indeed people looking to own a bike for competitive purposes. The Finiss is equipped with a thin and lightweight aluminum frame that is easily able to carry any riders. You can purchase the bike in a wide range of different styles and colors, Merax also provide different sizes of this model too – ensuring that you will definitely fit on it just right.

Currently there are three separate color designs available, all of which are an amalgamation of two tones; red/white, green/black and yellow/grey. We are a fan of all of the designs, they are well suited to both male riders and female riders alike. One key note on the Finiss is the fact that it has been aerodynamically designed so that you effortlessly glide down the road. This is an often overlooked feature, but in reality many bikes of today do not take this into account and as a result you end up in an awkward posture that is not conducive to maintaining momentum.
With the Merax Finiss being toted as a unisex bike, they had to not only ensure it was colored appropriately, but also that it fits all sizes of men and women. The bike comes in three seperate sizes currently; large (58cm), medium (54cm) and small (50cm). Sometimes people find it a convoluted task to determine which size of bike to buy for themselves, I will now try to outline this. Essentially, the measurements listed above relate to the the distance measured from the bottom bracket to the saddle. One important note to consider is that you can still extend the seat and so there is room to configure the bike further once you have purchased it. It is important to ensure that you are riding in the correct posture when you’re on the road and so I would recommend configuring it carefully once you buy your bike.
The majority of the components on the Merax Finiss are provided by Shimano, the Finiss utilities a 700c steel fork – this provides stability on the road and reduces vibrations substantially. The front (TZ-31) and rear (RD-TZ50) derailleurs are both produced by Shimano and they work extremely efficiently with the Shimano SA050 shifters at enabling rapid and smooth gear changes. These features are particularly beneficial for those of us that enjoy racing on the roads, whether for competition purposes or for leisure. The Finiss has a set of gorgeous Kenda tires which are set upon some durable A5 aluminum rims – these again are very firm and provide a great base for the bike.

I would truly recommend purchasing the Merax Finiss if you are looking for a first step into the road biking world and you don’t have an awful lot of money to play around with. The components used are of reasonable standards and it’s hard to find much better without spending astronomically more money. The Finiss is very lightweight, aerodynamically designed, the wheels can easily be removed for storage purposes and it’s economic price is certainly not going to break your bank account either. All in all it is a great bike for both men and women for all intents and purposes!
