The Silex was a ground up design project.
Rather than take a road or cyclo cross bike and re-jig the recipe the start point for the Silex was modern MTB inspired geometry - long top and head tubes and a short stem offers nimble confidence-inspiring handling.
At launch it was hailed as the most comfortable and versatile bike Merida had ever made.
The cycling press loved it too: " exceptional ride quality" (Cycling Plus) " a highly versatile bike" (IMB) " the best bike of this genre" (Offroad CC).
The bike has 5 sets of bottle bosses and rack mounting points to allow for many luggage carrying options.
All Silex models are equipped with powerful hydraulic disc brakes. Calipers are mounted on the chainstay for better dissipation of braking forces using the flat mount standard for a neat flush fit. Calipers sit on top of CNC'd aluminium Disc Cooler fins which reduce operating temperatures by up to 35% which is important if running fully loaded.
