Merida Silex 400 Gravel Bike

Merida’s new Silex 400 wants to bridge the gaps between commute, adventure, bikepacking, and gravel bikes. In order to achieve this, Merida’s development team had to dig deep into its box of tricks and throw in a fair amount of mountain bike technology.The Merida Silex 400 is the latest creation of the Germany-based development team – production is still based in the Taiwan HQ – and comes with many clever details. Chief among these is the disc-cooler system. Already seen on the Merida Scultura Disc and Reacto Disc, it dissipates heat from the brake rotors using a specially developed CNC cooling-fin system built into the frame.

With an impressive weight of 8.04 kg the Merida Silex 400 lands a third place in our test field. Even more of a surprise are its handling characteristics. The frame strikes a splendid balance between comfort and stiffness, and feels great on day-long tours, whether on the road, gravel or trails.
