The Merlin Malt-G1X is our top of the range bike in the ever-expanding line of Merlin Malt-G gravel bikes.

Following hot on the heels of our original Malt-G the Malt-G1X features a number of updates to the frame and forks; constructed from lightweight triple-butted 6061 aluminium it is paired with a light, full-carbon fork making the G1X the lightest and most agile frameset in the Malt-G range. The Merlin Malt-G1X can handle a wide variety of terrain including gravel tracks and green lanes allowing you to combine sections of road with more challenging segments meaning more of your adventures can start at your front door. The Malt-G1X has a full complement of mounts the bike is ready to sport mudguards and even a rear pannier - so if you want to head off on a touring adventure or simply commute to work you can, no problem.

The Merlin Malt-G1X gravel bike frameset features a new lightweight triple-butted 6061 Aluminium frame with thru-axles front and rear to ensure that wheels are kept securely in place, disc brakes are always perfectly aligned and steering precision is further enhanced thanks to the wheel hub and fork essentially becoming one unit. The Malt-G1X frame includes flat-mounts for disc brakes and internal cable routing for brake and gear cables giving a cleaner, less cluttered look to the bike as well as enhanced protection from grit and grime meaning your bike will run smoother for longer. With a comfortable, confident geometry that encourages all-day riding the Malt-G1X features a carbon thru-axle fork that stops the ride feeling too harsh when you're on the ruff-stuff.

We've spec'd the G1X with a Shimano GRX 810 11-speed groupset giving you a wide spread of gears for any terrain and any gradient; with a single ring chainset 42T and an 11/32T cassette you won't be struggling to find the right gear regardless of whether you're climbing loose tracks off-road or zipping along on flat roads. The Malt-G1X comes fitted with tough Merlin GDA-1 wheels featuring 6-Bolt thru-axle disc hubs and fast rolling, gravel-friendly Schwalbe G-One tyres (frame / fork has clearance for up to 38mm tyres). Finishing components include Deda bars and stem as well as a super-comfy Charge Spoon saddle.
