The Merida Matt's J20 is a Hardtail Mountain Bike which has been designed to the specific geometry and needs of a rider approx. 6-10 years old, or between 115-140cm in height. With carefully tailored components, such as the twist shifter and short reach brake lever, ensure that even the less experienced young cyclist can use their bikes safely and comfortably. The frame is manufactured from the same 6061 racelite aluminium as the adult’s bikes, they are also painted and lacquered in the same professional way, so they can handle more than a few hard knocks. 40mm of suspension travel up front helps smoothens things out, while the hydraulic disc brakes provide unrivalled stopping power. A modern 1x7 gear setup avoids confusion for younger riders while also reducing the number of components to maintain. Coming equipped with a kickstand, means this quality ride will not be left lying around. Integrated mounts for a rear rack and mudguards are also included.

Merida is an international bike brand with its headquarters in Taiwan, the R&D department is based near Stuttgart in Germany. To be based in Germany has historical reasons for MERIDA but the precise location was chosen specifically because the region around Stuttgart is one of the hot spots of the automotive and machine building industry which Germany is famous for and attracts a hugely skilled design and engineer labor force.
The Merida team are more than just highly trained and experienced bicycle creators – they simply love everything ‘bike’. Most of their R&D staff are daily bike commuters while others are serious mountain bikers, who regularly compete in Marathon, Enduro and Downhill competitions, or licensed road racers and even ambitious Ironman triathletes.
