Eddy Merckx opened his own factory in 1980. His steel Eddy Merckx Corsas were the absolute pinnacle of racing bikes. Everybody dreamed of racing a Corsa, which is why Eddy launched the Strada: to reach a big public.

The Strada placed itself just below the Corsa. It was made from Columbus tubes and aimed for the same qualities, but at a lower price point. Those were the keywords of the Eddy Merckx Strada.

When we relaunched Eddy Merckx Steel, we wanted to make a clear link with Eddy’s past as a world-class frame builder. That’s why we opted to use Strada and Corsa.
