eSILEX+ 600

 

Explore the path less travelled, follow the trail wherever it might take you. With hub motor assistance and battery hidden within a svelte frame, this is a bike to expand your horizons.

The helping hand of a hub drive unit and the off-road capability of a gravel bike means the eSILEX 600+ allows you to choose the trail you want to ride. Ride on or off-road with the combination of plump, gravel-ready tyres on agile 650b rims with drop barred efficiency and the subtle helping hand of the MAHLE ebikemotion X35+ hub motor and 250 Wh battery. A smooth Shimano GRX single chainring wide-range groupset and hydraulic disc brakes mean effortless control while our carbon fork helps dampen vibrations, plus a full complement of mounts is ideal for backpacking trips.

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.

  • Triple butted aluminium frame with built-in 250 Wh battery
  • Sleek 'normal bike' silhouette and low weight
  • Shimano GRX drivetrain and hydraulic brakes

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.

IMAGE

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.

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).

IMAGE

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. 

IMAGE

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.
