Sometimes a small push is all that's needed to open up a whole new world of exploration. The eSILEX 400 pairs a sleek, lightweight frame with versatile gravel tyres on 700c rims to the helping hand of the MAHLE ebikemotion X35+ hub drive motor and a 250 Wh battery to help expand your riding horizons. A fully-featured frame and carbon fork with plenty of mounts is ideal for overnight bikepacking trips or smaller adventures, while the smooth shifting and powerful braking of the Shimano GRX groupset with double chainset makes for reliable companions, on or off the road

If you are often looking for the off-road alternative when you are out on your bike or simply enjoy exploring the path unknown, then the eSILEX might be the perfect assisted bike for you. The rear-hub MAHLE system with integrated battery offers a neutral support level whenever your journey requires some e-motor assistance. You can even use an externally mounted 208 Wh MAHLE Range Extender to boost range. Similarly to the non-assisted SILEX, the eSILEX is available in the more rugged 650b or the more fast-rolling 700c set-up. Both versions come with gravel/off-road tyres for extra grip. A large number of fixing points on the frame as well as the fork, turn the eSILEX into an adventure rig without any fuss.

  • MAHLE ebikemotion X35+ hub motor gives natural feeling assistance
  • Triple butted aluminium frame with built-in 250 Wh battery
  • Sleek 'normal bike' silhouette and low weight
  • Shimano GRX drivetrain and hydraulic brakes
  • Fast-rolling 700c wheels with gravel tyres
  • Multiple frame and fork fixing points for extra carrying capacity

To reduce production and delivery times, we are sometimes forced to make last-minute specification changes. Please be aware that those changes might not be reflected on these product pages and images.

PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM

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

IMAGE

HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM

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.

IMAGE

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

SMOOTH WELDING

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

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
IMAGE

DOWN TUBE EXIT

Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.

IMAGE

F-MOUNT

‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.

IMAGE

K-MOUNT

Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand).

C-MOUNT

‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.

WIRE PORT

MERIDA designed headsets that allow all control cables to enter the frame through the headset, creating a clean and uncluttered look, without making structural changes to the frame. Depending on the model, the cables are run completely internally (including bar and stem) or semi-integrated where the cables enter the frame underneath the stem.
