Merida Silex 300 Gravel Bike (2018)
Up to 12 months interest free
Merida Silex 300 is an alloy frame adventure road bike, brand new to the Merida range for 2018. Merida Silex 300 combines road bike style geometry, with wheels, brakes and tyres that make it suitable for unsealed trails. The vesatile nature of the bike makes it suitable for recreational road riding or gravel grinding, as well as longer distance, all-weather commuting.
Merida Silex 300 features a lightweight alloy frame designed with all day riding comfort in mind. The frame is paired with a carbon fork to help keep the weight down, the use of carbon can also reduce hand fatigue by minimising the transfer of vibration from the road.
A single chainring drivetrain provided by Sram keeps the shifting simple and reliable, whilst using a wide range cassette ensure you have enough gears to get through the tough climbs.
Using disc brakes rather than rim brakes provides improved stopping power and consistency regardless of weather conditions or how dirty the bike gets. Tektro Spyre disc brakes give Merida Silex 300 excellent stopping power and control over braking.
The Merida Silex 300 is perfect bike to get off the tarmac and explore the path less travelled. All Merida bikes come with a lifetime warranty. This means frames are guaranteed to be free from material or manufacturing defects for the entire ownership for the original owner.

In September 1972, Ike Tseng (1932–2012) a brilliant engineer and visionary founded MERIDA. While visiting the USA, Ike saw a sign in a bike shop that stated refusal to repair any Taiwanese bikes, due to the unfavourable quality. As a result of this he set out to fulfil his dream of high quality bikes made in Taiwan and formed the MERIDA Industry Company Ltd.
The MERIDA name has three syllables Me-Ri-Da and it is the company’s intention to manufacture beautiful, high quality bikes that enables everyone to reach their destination enjoyably. MERIDA created a world-leading bike factory but Ike still wasn’t satisfied, so in 1988 the MERIDA brand was launched. Ike’s vision is still very much a part of MERIDA, manufacturing all kinds of bikes from children’s bikes to world-class professional road and mountain bikes for the Bahrain- MERIDA team riders. Everybody has a different journey, and everyone can benefit from a MERIDA.
