The Merida Matts J. Champion is the ultimate hardtail kid’s mountain bike, perfect for experienced riders looking to take the next step on their riding journey! Merida know that kids these days like to ride hard and fast, and often manage to outpace their parents – this was the guiding philosophy for the Matts J. Champion. Indeed, featuring a lightweight 6061 Alloy frame, children will easily be able to throw the Champion around as they chase the perfect line out on the trails. To match the aggressive frame design, a Suntour XCR32 Air fork has been chosen to offer 100mm of travel. With its adjustable rebound and hydraulic lockout, riders will be able to tune it to their riding style and whatever terrain lies ahead of them. To keep up with adults (and occasionally outstrip them), the Matts J. Champion features a wide-range Shimano Deore drivetrain which includes a clutch so dropped chains and annoying chain slap are a thing of the past! Naturally, Merida had to include hydraulic disc brakes to match the outright performance of the Champion, after all, there’s no point sending it if you can’t remain in control or come to a stop when you need too!
With the Merida Matts J. Champion, children are finally offered the performance they’ve been crying out for in a hardtail mountain bike. This is ultimate performance for shredding gnarly trails – now you can take your children wherever you go!
