Description

The Silex concept of all about comfort, simplicity and adaptability - the geometry is mountain bike inspired with a long top tube and short top tube for stability, the design was optimised around a 1x drivetrain to keep weight down and keep it simple. Maxxis designed the tyres to have a smooth centre for road riding and knobbly shoulders for off-road grip.

  • Material: Carbon
  • Groupset: SRAM Apex
  • Braking Type: Disc Brakes
  • NANO MATRIX CARBON
  • To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.
  • AWS
  • When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • DISC COOLER
  • A forged aluminium component under the front and/or rear caliper allowing heat to dissipate through CNC-milled cooling fins. Tests show that temperatures are reduced by around 35 % and cooling times are shortened, optimising the performance of the brake.
  • 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.
