Merida ESilex + 600 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 + 600 is targetted at gravel riders.
The eSilex + 600 features a Silex CF2 carbon fork, Shimano GRX 810 1 x 11 groupset, Shimano GRX 600 hydraulic disc brakes and 650b wheelset. The eSilex can be run as a 700c or 650b bike.
Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.
