Show Description

Decked out with dependable Shimano parts and performance-oriented geometry, the 2019 Silhouette got an end-to-end update. An urban bike, with the same frame as the MEC Shadowlands, the component package was selected to offer the best-possible value. Designed to be your daily commuter as well as your weekend touring rig, this bike will go as far are you legs will let you. Outfit it with a rack and panniers and you’ve got yourself a super eco-vehicle for groceries, wine tours, and getting to your day job.

  • Lightweight 7000-series aluminum frame uses butted tubing to keep the weight low.
  • Carbon fibre fork with aluminum steered tube keeps the weight low and improves comfort by absorbing vibrations.
  • Frame design allows for easy installation of an integrated kickstand.
  • 700 x 32mm Continental tires are built for rolling on roads and dirt roads or pathways or light trail use.
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide good stopping power, even in wet weather.
  • Wide-range gearing features Shimano Alivio front and rear derailleurs.
  • Shimano Alivio 26-36-48T triple crank and 9-speed 11-34T cassette lets you climb steep roads easily.
  • MEC Ergo Lock-on grips reduce pressure on your hands and won't twist around.
  • Wellgo flat pedals can be fitted with toeclips and straps.
  • MEC Carbon seatpost smooths out the ride and reduces the bike's overall weight.
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC bike shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase.
