For those rides, the test and award-winning SILEX makes total sense; Meridas'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.

Features - Silex 700
As standard, the SILEX comes with 700x35C tyres but can accommodate up to 700x42C (road profile). It's even possible to use 650B wheels and go up to 50 mm wide road profile tyres on the carbon and up to 42 mm on the aluminium bikes.
Featuring 12 mm bolt through axles for maximum frame stiffness, making wheel alignment much easier when refitting. The flat mount rear brake is mounted on the chainstay for better dissipation of braking forces and protecting it from damage in the rear triangle. Disc cooler technology draws heat away through CNC-milled cooling fins, particularly important when you are fully loaded.
Maxxis created an exclusive 35c semi-slicktyre with side knobbles for the SILEX. Featuring Maxxis Silkworm technology and puncture protection. Tyres can be inflated to high pressure for fast road riding, or slightly deflated to benefit from the added traction provided by the side knobbles on rougher surfaces.
