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.
