If you like to go out for a bike ride without wondering where your route will take you or on what surface you will be travelling, then the SILEX is the bike for you. Merida’s 200 model features the same lightweight aluminium frame as on more expensive models, with multiple fixing points for luggage, water bottles, fenders and rear rack and a full carbon fork for added comfort and precise steering. The wide gear range is perfect for long climbs as well as faster flat sections.

There’s a certain beauty in just riding without watching the time, heading wherever you feel the urge. For those rides, the test and award-winning SILEX makes total sense; Merida’s most comfortable and versatile road bike ever. With its modern MTB inspired geometry, long top and head tubes and short stem, it offers nimble, confidence-inspiring handling.

While often seen on extended gravel and rough road outings, as well as bikepacking trips, the SILEX also found a strong following in comfort-orientated road riding connoisseurs as well as commuters and city traffic weavers. The more rugged 650b wheeled alternative to the 700c SILEX has managed to obtain multiple test wins as well as comfort awards, and is coming back in the form of the fully loaded and wirelessly shifted SILEX+ LIMITED. The ‘classic’ 700c SILEX also impressed the press with the 400 securing a test win in Cycling Plus, being certified as having a ‘huge fun factor’, ‘superb riding position’ and ‘brilliant off-road handling’.
