Merlin Malt G2X GRX Limited Edition Gravel Bike
The Merlin Malt G2X GRX is our top of the range aluminium gravel bike. The third generation of our versatile gravel bike range features tweaked geometry, offering more comfort and stability as well as a more inclusive sizing range. With improved geometry and the simply effortless performance of Shimano's acclaimed GRX groupset, the Merlin Malt G2X GRX is our best aluminium gravel bike yet!
 
The Merlin Malt G2X GRX can handle a wide variety of terrain including muddy trails, gravel tracks and green lanes. This flexibility allows you to combine roads with a wide variety of other more challenging forms of terrain. Your adventures are no longer limited by your style of bike, open up flexibility in your rides and enjoy the pleasure and challenges which mixed terrain rides can offer.
 
The Merlin Malt G2 GRX features a lightweight, hydroformed, Triple Butted Aluminium frame with 12mm thru-axles front and rear. Thru-axles ensure the connection between wheels and frameset is secure and solid, disc brakes are always perfectly aligned and stearing precision is enhanced due to the wheel hubs and frameset essentially becoming one unit. The Malt G2 features flat-mounts for disc brakes and internal cable routing for brake and gear cables giving a cleaner, less cluttered look. Internal cable routing also offers enhanced protection from grit and grime, this means your bike's cables will work smoothly for longer.
 
The revised geometry across the Merlin gravel bike range enhances comfort and confidence to inspire all-day-rides, commute to the office or filthy gravel track action, depending on your plans for the day. The G2 GRX's carbon fork will reduce vibrations and smooths out the feel of whatever surfaces you are riding. The forks taper from 1 1/8" at the top, to 1.5" at the lower race, this further enhances the 'surefooted' feel of the front end. Shimano's GRX groupset offers everything you would expect from the market leader, both in terms of performance and elegant, robust style. This frame can easily fit up to a 700c x 40mm tyre (or 650b x 42).

Mr Stewart This bike is superb. Straight out of the box, the colour scheme is lovely, a lovely gloss dark grey with green flash, I have ridden the bike for around 250 miles since I received it a few weeks ago and have ridden effortlessly across a variety of terrain including boardwalks, farm tracks, gravel roads/tracks, forrest trails and on road. The 1x11 gearing is all you need to tackle various terrain and thanks to the shimano GRX 812 rear derailleur, with the clutch in the ‘on’ position, there has been no chain slap. The hydraulic brakes are superb and there is ample grip with the Schwalbe G One Allround tires, they also roll very well on roads. I am a bit of a bike fanatic and I would honestly say that this one is the culmination of all of the best bits from the others I ride, all rolled into one! Simply buy one and you will not regret it!
