While the Merida Scultura 2022 has the same geometry as the Merida Reacto, by looking at Mikel Landa’s 2021 bike you will notice some details differing from his 2022 bike.
The most visible one is the custom-made FSA stem aero handlebar combo with an aggressive angle.
The FSA stem is 110mm and has an -15 Degrees, and Mikel uses a 400mm handlebars width.

I have found some nice pictures showing the new stem and seat post on Getty Images linked here and here. Enjoy!

The seat post is the other visual difference with Mikel’s 2021 Merida bike.
Landa now rides with an FSA K-Force SB 32mm setback seat post, and his Prologo Scratch saddle is at 710mm in height from the center of the bottom bracket.
The saddle’s setback is 70mm, and there is 560mm from the tip of the saddle to the handlebar’s virtual clamp axle.

Reliable Bike Set Up

The bikes of the team Bahrain – Victorious are rolling on Vision SL wheels and Continental Grand Prix 5000 S Tubeless tires.
The gears are the Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 12-speeds disc groupset. Landa uses 172.5mm crankset arms’ length with 54/40 teeth chainrings which are Shimano’s new standard replacing the legendary 53/39.

The team uses the Shimano Dura-Ace SPD-SL pedals, Shimano PowerMeter and Garmin Edge GPS.

Landa’s bike Price and Wears

Mikel Landa races with a Rudy Project helmet and sunglasses, Ale cycling jersey and bib-shorts, Prologo gloves, and white color Sidi Wire 2 Carbon Air cycling shoes with Shimano yellow SPD-SL cleats.
