The Meerkat 26 inch 5 speed fills a sweet spot for older grade schoolers and middle schoolers. Built specifically for riders who are not quite ready for an adult-size bicycle, but have outgrown a 24 inch bike, the Meerkat is their ticket to adventure and independence.
The Meerkat is a kids all terrain bike that is fast, sleek and styled to appeal to the 10 to 12-year-old* in your life. The 26 inch wheels roll that much faster than 24’s and provide a solid platform for taller riders. The Sturmey Archer trigger shifter and 5 speed internally geared hub offer maintenance free, buttery smooth shifting for thousands of miles. The Meerkat 26 inch is a practical bike, comfortable in urban settings because it’s easy to lock up, has no derailleur to get bent in a bike rack and rolls smoothly over the most pothole filled route.
It’s just as capable on a weekend bikepacking trip, just add knobby tires up to 2.35” and and your Meerkat is ready to roll for days in the backcountry.
