The easy way to a great deal of freedom.
Riding an MTB means enjoying a lot of freedom – it’s as easy as that. No other type of cycling is so closely linked to the breaking of one’s boundaries, the enjoyment of nature, or just coasting along in your leisure time. A whole lot has happened since mountain bikes came onto the global scene in the 80s, but one thing has remained constant: reliable 26-inch hardtails such as MATTS provide easy access to the world of off-road tires. Therefore, they will once again be the most popular mountain bikes in the world in the 2016 season.
Even in times of full-suspension MTBs, 29ers and 27.5 inchers, there are good reasons for many people to rely on proven concepts like 26” wheelsets. For example, the “classic” beats other MTB versions simply in terms of popularity, and thus inevitably in terms of its price and availability of accessories and parts. And for everyone whose physique alone excludes riding a “big” mountain bike, the geometry of a 26 incher continues to be the best choice. For example, children and young people who are thinking about changing from 24 inches find MATTS to be a reliable partner that can be further equipped with interesting specs. For instance, fenders, a kickstand and/or a bike rack (depending on model version) can be permanently attached, turning any MATTS into a professional for school and everyday life in no time. For the 2016 models, the entire MATTS family stays equipped with up-to-date affordable groupsets and 100mm suspension forks. “A new coat of paint” plus new graphics seamlessly integrate it into our other hardtail ranges.
