MERIDA SILEX 400 GREY/BLACK/GREEN MEDIUM GRAVEL BIKE AVAILABLE NOW

Winning the gravel world champs on it’s first public outing was quite the testament to the ability of the Merida SILEX, but it’s not just a race bike…

 

The Merida SILEX 400 is an adventure-ready gravel bike that’s equally at home doing a rough commute or winter training laps, thanks to a durable aluminium frame, lightweight carbon fork and huge tyre clearance of 700 x 45 mm – or even 42 mm tyres with mudguards.

MTB-inspired geometry gives you huge confidence off-road, the huge number of mounts mean you’ll be able to carry what you need easily, and the durable Shimano 2×10-speed GRX groupset and hydraulic brakes will make short work of the ups and downs.

 

The SILEX 400 turns any ride into an adventure, whether you’re on a multi-day gravel bikepacking mission or just taking the fun route to work. The latest version builds on the test-winning pedigree of the original SILEX but adds even more off-road capability, thanks to a slacker head angle and boosted tyre clearance.
