Matrix Large

Price £529.99



A street bike with attitude, the Matrix combines road and mountain influences for a style all its own. It’s a fast and nimble bike that begs to be ridden hard. The Matrix features a Joe Murray designed frame and adds moto-style Continental slicks to get you where you need to go - fast. And when you need to jump on a bus or catch a ride with a buddy, the Matrix folds in only five seconds. For 2007, we’ve given the Matrix a complete overhaul, upgrading it with a 24 speed Sram X7 drive train, Shimano disc brakes and hubs, FSA cranks, and a BioLogic™ PostPump so if you ever do get a flat, you’ll be up and going in a flash.

FREE TUNE-UP - a £30 value!
Dahon requires all of their bikes to be checked and adjusted by a trained bicycle mechanic before riding.
This activates the warranty and you can then upgrade to a lifetime warranty simply by sending the warranty card in.
Without this service, you'd have to bring your bike down to the local bike shop for a tune up before riding and you'd get charged up to £30.
We offer this service for free, so when you get your bike from us, all you have to do is unfold it and you can start riding.

*Note: These are Dahons standard model specifications. We do our best to ensure that the specifications listed here accurately reflect the exact parts found on our delivered bikes. However, component changes do occur for various reasons and there may be brief delays on site updates. Dahon reserve the right to make component changes without prior notification, which may ca
use discrepancies with the information listed on the web.
