The majority of SILEX models are fitted with 1x drivetrains for simplicity, resulting in weight reduction and fewer moving parts. A 1x can deliver 98 % of the gear range of a 50-34 compact chainset with an 11-32 road set up.
Maxxis created an exclusive 35c semi-slick tyre with side knobbles for our SILEX. Featuring Maxxis Silkworm technology and puncture protection. Tyres can be inflated to high pressure for fast road riding, or slightly deflated to benefit from the added traction provided by the side knobbles on rougher surfaces.
An innovative addition to the handlebar substantially increases the surface area, providing the ergonomic benefit of spreading the rider's weight, reducing pressure on the hands and creating a very natural forearm position when riding on the tops.
In line with the design ethos of versatility and go anywhere, the SILEX is available with a wide range of luggage and accessory options including frame bags and big saddle bags. Unique quick mount mudguards are available, the quick mounting adds to the versatility - transfer from fast training bike to winter bike quickly and easily.
As standard the SILEX comes with 35 mm tyres but will happily accommodate up to a 44 mm tyre or a 2.2" 650b wheel.
Featuring 12 mm bolt through axles for maximum frame stiffness, making wheel alignment much easier when refitting. The flat mount rear brake is mounted on the chainstay for better dissipation of braking forces and protecting it from damage in the rear triangle. Disc cooler technology draws heat away through CNC-milled cooling fins, particularly important when you are fully loaded.
