CATEGORY HIGHLIGHTS

Last year saw the introduction of the new MATTS J.+ frame and concept. While being only used in the rigid MATTS J.+ bikes in 2020, the lightweight, high-quality frame with youth optimised geometry is now available in a variety of rigid and front suspension options, as well as 20" and 24" wheel size. Ideal to find your first MERIDA bike.

The specific demands on childrens' components make them differ a lot from adult components. Not only that kids are smaller, but also do not have the same strength in their hands, for example, when it comes to braking. That's why we have chosen specific components to ensure that our youngest cyclists are able to use their bikes safely and comfortably and make them easy to handle in any situation.

Our MATTS J.+ bikes feature not just the well-proven weight and geometry optimised frame but are also designed around a lightweight, rigid fork combined with 20" or 24" 'plus' tyres for extra grip and comfort. The result, no unnecessary weight, simple, stylish and hugely effective.

Many of our bikes feature rigid forks. This helps to keep the weight down, which is a big advantage for much lighter riders. Gears are also kept to a minimum, avoiding confusion for young riders, as well as reducing weight.

All kids' bike frames are made with the same 6061 lightweight aluminium we use in our adult bikes; we don't cut any corners. They're also painted and lacquered in the same way, so the bikes can still look great even after a few tough knocks.

Technology

RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

We use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The pay back is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.

F-MOUNT

‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.

K-MOUNT

Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand).

C-MOUNT

‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.
