Merida ESilex 400 2021 – Electric Gravel Bike
Brand new for MY21 we are using the proven Mahle eBikemotion hub motor system to create a range of 5 new models. Mahle’s eBikemotion system uses a 40Nm rear hub motor powered by a fully integrated 250Wh battery hidden in the downtube. The system has an iWoc button for controlling support levels and a Sophisticated app with the opportunity to adjust the riding feel as well as post-ride analysis features.
Five models all based on the same versatile geometry frame. Each model has a specific fork and componentry to match its application. The frame has mounts for mudguards and rack and a neat hidden kickstand mount, generous tyre clearance means you can run up to a 40mm tyre and mudguards. Cable routing is through a specific headset cap to keep the cockpit nice and neat. The eSilex 400 is targetted at gravel riders or those looking for a rugged all rounder.
The eSilex 400 features a Silex CF2 carbon fork, Shimano GRX 400 2 x 10 groupset, Shimano GRX 400 hydraulic disc brakes and a 700c wheelset The eSilex can be run as a 700c or 650b bike.
