Today, Merida has announced the launch of the new Merida Silex gravel bike. The launch comes 10 days after the bike was ridden to victory in the UCI Gravel World Championships by Matej Mohorič of Bahrain Victorious.

Although the Slovenian has taken the new gravel machine racing with stellar effect, the Silex remains firmly planted in Merida's exploration gravel bike spot, now with a 1.5 degree slacker head angle, and more mountain points for luggage and mudguards.
