Merlin MALT+ 27.5+ Mountain Bike

Our Merlin MALT+ is the perfect option if you’re looking for a fun, versatile trail shredding hardtail mountain bike that can handle long days in the hills exploring natural trails as well as demanding sessions at your nearest trail centre when you need a bike that can handle berms, jumps, drops and tight singletrack. We’ve designed and built the tough but lightweight alloy MALT+ to accommodate 27.5+ tyres and boost wheels giving unrivaled amounts of grip on loose terrain and enhanced steering precision and tracking through the rough stuff thanks to its increased hub width.


Our design brief for the Merlin MALT+ mountain bike was simple – build an affordable, robust plus mountain bike that you can ride on any terrain, which benefits from a capable suspension fork, aggressive, agile bike geometry and a reliable componentry spec that needs very little attention or excessive maintenance, leaving you to get out and enjoy as much of your free time as possible shredding the trails rather than tinkering in the workshop.

Mr Bike At first I was a little apprehensive about buying this bike, mainly due to the slightly steeper headangle than most moden geometry. However having taken the bike for a ride I was pleasently suprised, it climbs exremely well for a plus bike, is far more confident on the descends than I thought it would be, and has a excellent spec for the price.
Mr Moore When it came out of the box, you could tell it was good quality! Looks a beast! Been out for a couple of big rides testing out to get my set up right! Very sturdy yet surprisingly lightweight bike. Sram brakes, gear shift very good so far. Rock ShoX Revelation forks very good. I can see a good few years of exploring ahead!
Mr West I must admit I was a bit unsure about this bike as there didn’t seem to be many reviews or much information online about this bike. As soon as I opened the box I could not believe what a fantastic bargain I purchased. The bike frame is very high quality with a really classy black paint that looks almost blue. The welds and finish to the bike is spot on. The components, drive train and wheels are perfect for the bike. The forks are superb I am having a lot of fun on this crazy hardtail. Well done on this bike Merlin!
Mr STOTT Really impressed with the bike so far. Well built, good spec and looks amazing. Not had chance to give it a proper outing yet but early signs are good. Delivery was excellent too.
