Race Bicycle SILEX 600 by Merida
MERIDA was founded in 1972 by Ike Tseng with the aim of giving the label "Made in Taiwan" a better reputation. The three syllables of our name roughly mean: "The intention to produce only beautiful and high-quality products, with which everyone can achieve his goal as pleasant as possible." Tseng gave in the episode of bicycle production a new face. Today, Taiwan is the country with the best manufacturing know-how in the bicycle industry.
A MERIDA is born entirely internationally: Our R & D team develops our complete model range in the Stuttgart innovation area. Here we test on test stands, on the Feierabendrunde, on tour and at the weekend race. In Yuanlin, Taiwan, we combine the excellent development work of the German team with high-tech materials, innovative production technologies and precise and careful manual work. As a brand, we stand for MORE INOVATION: Innovative novelties that help shape the world of tomorrow's bikes. MORE SUCCESS: Maximum performance that allows athletes to achieve their goals.
MORE PASSION: Our own passion fuels us, that of our customers is our motivation. MORE FUN: Not only do we work with a lot of fun and joy on our bikes, we also want a MERIDA to awaken these emotions. Our overarching motto is MORE BIKE. And rightly so: A MERIDA customer can expect a certain "more" in bike, which gives you the good feeling to sit on the right bike - and not on any. We have so much confidence in our products that we offer a lifetime warranty on all frames.
The SILEX is a new and exciting concept from MERIDA: A bike that can not be put in a drawer due to its multitude of uses. Bikepacking, long-distance travel, Gravel, heating over asphalt, commuting to work - even easy singletrack biking is with the right setup in it. The SILEX literally redefines the "Road" category.
2-mm thru axles improve the frame and fork stiffness and ensure that the wheels are aligned precisely. The Flatmount rear brake is supported by the sturdy chainstay, which helps to better distribute the forces involved. In the rear triangle, it is well protected from damage. Our "Disc Cooler" technology dissipates heat with CNC milled cooling fins, which is important for optimum brake function, especially when touring with luggage.
The SILEX models come standard with 35 mm wide tires. You can also ride with up to 44 mm wide tires or even 2.2 "wide 650B tires, if the surface is extra demanding.
