Merida Silex 600

  • Merida Silex 600
Brand New for 2018, the Silex is Merida’s most comfortable and versatile road bike ever. With its modern MTB inspired geometry, long top and head tubes and short stem it provides nimble inspiring handling.

SILEX is at home pretty much everywhere you can imagine riding your bike.

The key feature of the SILEX concept is the frame and with that the geometry which makes this bike what it is. A very long head tube and long reach combined with a short stem (80/90 mm) and relatively low stand-over-height give a unique riding experience.

This leads to a very upright position on the bike which creates less tension in the back and neck area. There are many bikes out there with a so called ‘endurance’ geometry, but the actual difference is very small. Usually, the difference is just a longer head tube and a shorter reach.

Merida have noticed that many customers still put a significant amount of spacers underneath the stem to bring up their position on the bike. This reduces the stiffness noticeably as well as having a negative effect on the clean appearance of the bike. With this new concept, Merida have a long tapered head tube which makes the use of several spacers obsolete.

Not only will the bike look much sportier, but it will have a substantial increase in front end stiffness which is quite important if you take it off-road.
