Merida Silex 400
At launch it was hailed as the most comfortable and versatile Merida ever. The modern MTB inspired geometry; with long top and head tubes and a short stem offers nimble, confidence-inspiring handling. The press loved it: “exceptional ride quality” (Cycling Plus), “a highly versatile bike” (IMB), “the best bike of this genre” (Offroad CC).
The bike has 5 separate bottle mounting points to allow for many luggage carrying options. Luggage and accessory range available increasing versatility.
The design ethos was simplicity; most Silex models run a 1x system, saving weight and reducing moving parts. A 1x system delivers 98% of the range of a 50-34 x 11-32 set up.
The frame is made from triple butted and hydroformed 6066 series aluminium tubing with smooth welding. Tapered head tube for steering precision, Internal cable routing, BB386, flat mount disc calliper interface with disc cooler technology. 1900g – M +/- 3%
The unique tyres were developed especially for us by Maxxis to have a smooth centre for road riding and knobbly shoulders for off-road grip.
Max. tyre width 700 x 42c (road profile) or 650b x 42mm (road profile).
