The Merida Silex 4000 Gravel Bike is Merida's entry level carbon all-road and gravel bike. It comes ready for back lane adventures, gravel roads, and forest trails. Featuring a CF2 carbon frame, this bike comes with all the fixing points for luggage, water bottles, fenders, and rear racks meaning it is ready for whatever adventure you want to throw at it. The Carbon CF2 fork increases ride comfort and precision in your steering no matter the terrain, while the gravel-specific 2 x 10, 11-36T gear range of the Shimano GRX groupset is perfect for both faster flat sections and long climbs.
The gravel-specific Shimano GRX hydraulic disc brakes offer superior stopping power no matter the weather or terrain, and the Maxxis Rambler tyres (with clearance to install up to 42mm tyres!) offer great grip for offroad rides. All of this combines to make Merida's most versatile and comfortable road bike ever. Not only will it feel at home on roads and paths and on your daily commutes, but it can seamlessly transition to those weekend gravel grinds, bikepacking trips or forest trails.
The Silex 4000's geometry draws inspiration from modern mountain bikes to create a bike that is amazingly comfortable and incredible nimble with a long top tube and head tube and a short stem. The Silex has confidence-inspiring handling in spades and due to its renown for comfort, not only is it a popular bike amongst the gravel crowd, but it also has a strong following from the comfort-focused road and commuting community. Aside from comfort and practicality, the Silex 4000 offers amazing style with its sleek design, and internal cable routing leaving your cockpit uncluttered and clear. All of this forms to make a versatile bike that looks and feels amazing.
NANO MATRIX CARBON
To give you the strongest and best Carbon frames, Merida utilises Nano Matrix technology. The Carbon fibres are bonded together using an epoxy resin with added nanoparticles which increases the impact resistance by up to 40%!
INTERNAL SEAT CLAMP
While an internal seat clamp may seem like a nondescript detail, in reality, it can result in saving split seconds. This integrated seat clamp minimises turbulence at the top tube giving you a faster, more comfortable ride.
The X-Tapered headtube on this bike provides room for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks provide superb stiffness and precise confidence-inspiring shifting, with this setup you'll be able to navigate streets and corners with ease!
