Even the newest cyclists deserve a quality riding experience, with a bike that’s built from high-quality parts and based entirely around their needs.

With an updated frame that’s lighter than before, the MATTS J16 offers even the youngest riders seriously sorted handling and equipment designed around their needs. That means brakes with special levers designed for little hands to effectively control, plus easy to pedal gearing contained in a closed chain guard that keep hands safe and clothes clean. Lightweight wheels with fast rolling but grippy tyres ensure that that youth is no barrier to shredding. Suits heights from approx. 92-109 cm tall.

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!
