The Merida Silex 200 Gravel Bike is the entry-level all-road and gravel bike of the Silex range and comes ready for back lane adventures, gravel roads, and forest trails. While the Silex 200 is the entry-level bike of the range, it is anything but basic! With the same lightweight aluminium frame as more expensive models, 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 wide 2 x 9, 11-32T gear range of the Shimano Sora gearset is perfect for both faster flat sections and long climbs. The mechanical disc brakes offer superior stopping power no matter the weather or terrain, and the Maxxis Rambler 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 200's geometry draws inspiration from modern mountain bikes to create a bike that is amazingly comfortable and incredibly 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 200 offers amazing style with its sleek design, and internal cable routing leaving your cockpit uncluttered and clear. All of this combines to make a versatile bike that looks and feels amazing, but at an affordable price, making the Silex 200 the perfect entry-level all-road bike.
