Merida Silex 400 2022


The SILEX is the ‘Swiss army knife’ of our road bike range. It is at home on gravel, roads, off-road (with 650b wheels and MTB tyres) and loves adventure riding, bikepacking, touring and commuting. There is no ‘restrictive/real’ category for this bike, leaving the interpretation of the SILEX and its chosen usage in your hands.


As standard, the SILEX comes with 35 mm tyres but will happily accommodate up to a 44 mm tyre or a 2.2" 650b wheel.


Featuring 12 mm bolt through axles for maximum frame stiffness, making wheel alignment much easier when the wheel is put into the frame. The flat mount rear brake is mounted on the chainstay for better dissipation of braking forces and protection from damage. Disc cooler technology draws heat away through CNC-milled cooling fins, particularly important when you are fully loaded.


Maxxis created an exclusive 35c semi-slick tyre with side knobbles for our SILEX that features Maxxis Silkworm technology and puncture protection. Tyres can be inflated to high pressure for fast road riding, or slightly deflated to benefit from the added traction provided by the side knobbles on rougher surfaces


In line with the design ethos of versatility and go anywhere, the SILEX is available with a wide range of luggage and accessory options including frame bags and big saddle bags. Unique quick mount mudguards are available, the quick mounting adds to the versatility – transfer from fast training bike to winter bike quickly and easily.
