Merida's most comfortable and versatile road bike, the Silex makes the perfect 'all-road' bike, taking you wherever you feel the urge to roam. A full carbon fork is paired with a lightweight 6066 triple butted and hydroformed aluminum frame with internal cable routing and an upright gravel geometry, providing the bike with nimble, confidence-inspiring handling. The 1x11 speed Sram Apex1 drivetrain delivers an ample ratio while providing the simplicity that results in weight reduction and fewer moving parts to maintain. 700c wheels with 38mm tyres for the perfect 'all-road' bike which loves lanes, forest tracks and gravel are exchangeable with burlier 650B wheels and 42mm tyres for more demanding terrain. The Silex is available with a wide range of luggage and accessory options, including frame bags and big saddle bags. Fender mounts on the rear triangle and fork, transform the Silex from a fast winter training bike to a versatile commuting and touring bike.

Merida Silex Bike Sizing Chart

Merida is an international bike brand with its headquarters in Taiwan, the R&D department is based near Stuttgart in Germany. To be based in Germany has historical reasons for MERIDA but the precise location was chosen specifically because the region around Stuttgart is one of the hot spots of the automotive and machine building industry which Germany is famous for and attracts a hugely skilled design and engineer labor force.

The Merida team are more than just highly trained and experienced bicycle creators – they simply love everything ‘bike’. Most of their R&D staff are daily bike commuters while others are serious mountain bikers, who regularly compete in Marathon, Enduro and Downhill competitions, or licensed road racers and even ambitious Ironman triathletes. Get the behind the scenes view of the Merida R&D centre and meet some of their key members of staff in the below video.
