Description

htweight 6066 triple butted and hydroformed aluminium frame with upright gravel geometry for stable but nimble handling. Featuring internal cable routing and BB86 bottom bracket. FULLY LOADED 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.

SHIFTING SIMPLICITY 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.

LATEST TECHNOLOGY 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.

GO BIG As standard, the SILEX comes with 700x35C tyres but can accommodate up to 700x42C (road profile). It's even possible to use 650B wheels and go up to 50 mm wide road profile tyres on the carbon and up to 42 mm on the aluminium bikes.

INNOVATIVE TYRES To put the SILEX on the perfect tyre, we have collaborated with Maxxis to create the ideal 35c semi-slick tyre with side knobs for our all road bike. The tyre, which featuring Maxxis Silkworm technology and puncture protection, can be inflated to high pressure for fast road riding, or slightly deflated to benefit from the added traction provided by the side knobs on rougher surfaces.

  • PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM
  • Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.
  • CARBON FORK
  • Carbon forks provide superb vibration damping and precise steering. All road bikes feature a full carbon fork; the steerer and fork blades are all made of carbon.
  • HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM
  • Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.
  • X-TAPER HEADTUBE
  • Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.
  • SMOOTH WELDING
  • Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.
  • INTERNAL CABLE
  • Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
  • 12-100 THRU-AXLE
  • Selected front forks use a 100 mm wide through axle 12 or 15 mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness. A 142 mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal and replacement.
  • 12-142 THRU-AXLE
  • Selected front forks use a 100 mm wide through axle 12 or 15 mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness. A 142 mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal and replacement.
  • F-MOUNT
  • ‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.
  • C-MOUNT
  • ‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.
