  • Merida Silux 8000 e-Plus 27.5
The Silex is the true go anywhere do anything road bike. Happy pounding the miles on the UK's broken roads or venturing further afield off-road thanks to it suggest build and fat tyres.

Merida offer the SILEX in two options. The 'classic' SILEX standing on 700c wheels, being the perfect 'all-road' bike which loves lanes, forest tracks and gravel or the new more 'rugged' SILEX+ version, which can easily tackle more demanding terrain due to its more burly 650B wheels and 45 mm tyres. The choice is yours. Both options are based on the same frame, so wheels are exchangeable at a later date.
