Merida Silex 600 2020 Gravel Road Bike: Red Information

Season : 2020

Brand : Merida

Code : 2020silex600

Lightweight 6066 triple butted and hydroformed aluminium frame with upright gravel geometry for stable but nimble handling. Featuring internal cable routing and BB86 bottom bracket.

In line with the design ethos of versatility and go anywhere, the SILEX is available with a wide range of luggage and accessory options including frame bags and big saddle bags.

The majority of SILEX models are fitted with 1x drivetrains for simplicity, resulting in weight reduction and fewer moving parts. A 1x can deliver 98 % of the gear range of a 50-34 compact chainset with an 11-32 road set up.

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.

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.

To put the SILEX on the perfect tyre, we have collaborated with Maxxis to create the ideal 35c semi-slick tyre with side knobs for our all road bike. The tyre, which featuring Maxxis Silkworm technology and puncture protection, can be inflated to high pressure for fast road riding, or slightly deflated to benefit from the added traction provided by the side knobs on rougher surfaces.

Lightweight carbon or sophisticated aluminium frame options. Key differences, other than construction materials, are that the carbon frame has a lower weight and is equipped with an integrated seat-post clamp to minimise turbulence at the top tube.


Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.

Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.

Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.

Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance you'll be convinced it is carbon.

Post mounted calipers fit directly for a strong and light connection whilst positioning the caliper on the chainstay within the rear triangle gives it extra protection and better distribution of braking forces.
