At launch it was hailed as our most comfortable and versatile bike ever. With modern MTB inspired geometry - long top and head tubes and a short stem offers nimble, confidence-inspiring handling. The press loved it: “exceptional ride quality” (Cycling Plus), “a highly versatile bike” (IMB), “the best bike of this genre” (Offroad CC). The bike has 5 separate bottle mounting points to allow for many luggage carrying options. Silex + models use 650b wheels for an even greater off-road capability.
