MATTS J. 24+

 

By matching oversize and grippy 24" ‘Plus’ tyres to a rigid fork, we’ve made a kid’s specific monster truck that delivers all of the fun, but without the weight.

The MATTS J24 Plus is a fat-tyred monster truck that offers the control and grip of chunky 24" oversize tyres, paired to a rigid fork that keeps excess weight to the absolute minimum. Add in our kids specific finishing kit, powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a smooth Shimano drivetrain and you’ve got an awful lot of fun without the fat. Suits heights from approx. 129-137 cm.

Our MATTS J range is designed for the heroes of tomorrow, which is why we put all the know-how gained from years of making adult bikes into lightweight, high-quality machines for kids to enjoy. High-quality components chosen specifically for the needs of children are married to our aluminium frames that are created with the same painstaking attention to detail and quality of finish as the rest of our bikes.
That’s the only way to guarantee that young riders get the same enjoyment of cycling, safe in the knowledge that their bike will never let them down. Whatever your age, your level of ability or your size, we have the perfect first MERIDA ready for you. See you on the start line!

RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

We use a minimum of 6061 grade aluminium on all our bikes. It’s particularly well suited to being shaped with our hydroforming and technoforming processes, which allow us to vary the wall thickness to create double-butted tubing and complex frame shapes. It’s also an alloy that welds easily, and once it has been carefully heat treated to maximise strength, it means we can create strong and lightweight bicycle frames for you to enjoy.

F-MOUNT

Being able to turn your bike into an all-weather commuter that has mudguards and other fittings can be a real plus, in particular when riding on wet and perhaps muddy roads and tracks on a regular basis. To make fitting easy, some of our bikes are F-MOUNT equipped. These integrated fittings mounts make adding mudguards fast and simple. Please note that some bikes require model-specific mudguards.

K-MOUNT

When using your bike in an urban environment, where you might not always have the option to use a specific bike stand, a kickstand is an ideal solution to park your bike safely. Some of our bikes come with a neatly integrated K-MOUNT, which makes fitting a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand) easy. And if you don’t want to have a kickstand and prefer the clean appearance of your frame, the K-MOUNT is neatly tucked away underneath your chainstay, difficult to spot if you don’t know it is there.

C-MOUNT

Similar to our F-MOUNT, where various fixing points for mudguards are part of the frame offering, the C-MOUNT equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated, making fitting fast, simple and reliable. The C-MOUNTS are an additional feature that improves the day-to-day versatility by adding loading capacity to your bike, ideal for commuting and shopping trips. Please note that some bikes require model-specific rear racks.
