Back in new shape: our women specific hardtail
Why should female riders limit themselves to cruisers and hybrids when there is so much mtb fun to be had? This is where our JULIET hardtail comes in: more than just ladylike, stylish and sexy. Its totally redesigned frame offers female cyclists another noticeable shot of the “MERIDA feel-good factor” in 2016.
Unique design has been the factor that has won over mountain bike-savvy women for our JULIET series for years. Due to the marked swoop of the top tube, our engineers attained a lower standover height. As a result, every time the rider gets on or off, every (unplanned) stop and every maneuver in challenging terrain feels a lot better. For the 2016 JULIET season, the engineers at MERIDA have reduced this standover height even further. The result is a noticeable increase in safety and reliability, achieved by doing without a gusset, an additional support of the top tube located on the seat post. This functional modernization has a pleasant side effect: the new JULIETs look a little bit sportier. The new frame is absolutely state-of-the-art in terms of how the rear brake cables can be elegantly integrated into the frame*. As was the case in the generations before the new 2016 models, it features 100mm suspension forks, reliable handlebars, brakes and shifters. Plus, it will be possible to attach a kickstand, fenders and/or a bike rack (depending on model version). This ensures that our women’s MTB will continue to distinguish itself as a reliable partner in leisure time and everyday life, even when it is not being used for exercise.
