Merida Silex 400 is an alloy frame adventure road bike, brand new to the Merida range for 2018. Merida Silex 400 combines road bike style geometry, with wheels, brakes and tyres that make it suitable for unsealed trails. The vesatile nature of the bike makes it suitable for recreational road riding or gravel grinding, as well as longer distance, all-weather commuting.
The Silex 400 features a lightweight alloy frame designed with all day riding comfort in mind. The frame is paired with a carbon fork to help keep the weight down, the use of carbon can also reduce hand fatigue by minimising the transfer of vibration from the road.
Compact gearing in the form Shimano 105 gives you gearing for every occasion, and unparalleled reliability. Using disc brakes rather than rim brakes ensures good stopping power and consistency regardless of weather conditions or how dirty the bike gets.
The Merida Silex 400 is perfect bike to get off the tarmac and explore the path less travelled. All Merida bikes come with a lifetime warranty. This means frames are guaranteed to be free from material or manufacturing defects for the entire ownership for the original owner.
