Think of the new Merida eBIG.TOUR 400 EQ as a modern SUV, stylish and practical. Kitted out with fast-rolling 29” wheels make for effortless cycling, the 2.2" wide tyre fits neatly inside the mudguards for year-round practicality.
The bent top tube provides a low standover height for rider confidence and easy mounting and dismounting. Some of the technical features of our performance e-bikes make an appearance - satellite charging socket, two compound battery compartment cover, and neat bottle boss system incorporating tidy cable routing.
eBIG.TOUR LITE II Frame
HFS-hydroforming Prolite 66 triple-butted aluminium 29er hardtail frame with integrated battery technology, heavily sloping top tube and sporty yet comfortable geometry. ‘Smart Entry’ cable routing for rattle free running. Casting motor bracket creating an integrated appearance of the motor into the frame as well as provides an extremely strong connection between frame and motor. Comes with integrated fixings for mudguards and side stand. Multiple fixing positions for water bottles and accessories.
The eBIG.TOUR EQ is rolling on 29er wheels which have fantastic ‘rolling over obstacles’ behaviour. As standard, it comes equipped with 2.2" wide tyres which offer plenty of grip and comfort. If no fenders are fitted, the tyres can go up to 2.35" improving the off-road riding characteristics even further.
A two-component battery cover, which offers the perfect protection for the internal battery of these models. The softer (outer) layer reduces noises, seals the downtube perfectly and absorbs hits from trail debris easily, while the harder (inner) layer ensures that the battery does not get damaged and gives it the structural shape.
The system weight of a bike is the combined weight of bike, rider and additional luggage. The allowed system weight is 140 kg. As an e-bike is already heavier than a regular bike, and as it also makes it easier to transport larger amounts of luggage, it is imperative to certify a higher overall system weight. All MERIDA e-bikes, as well as all used componentry, go through a rigorous and e-bike specific testing schedule which mimics the higher forces and strains to guarantee the rider the highest level of safety.
The E8000 battery is perfectly integrated into the hydroformed down tube and delivers an impressive 500 Wh long detours home – the perfect aggregate for the new E7000 motor, which impresses commuters and sporty riders with its perfect balanced power delivery. However, for the more performance orientated rider we also offer a complete E8000 system.

Shipping is FREE of charge on bikes (or orders containing bikes) over £499 within Mainland UK and £29.95 on orders containing bikes under £499.
We aim to ship bikes ordered before 12:00 on weekdays that same day with delivery estimated the following working day via DPD, this includes a timed hour slot and options to delay or nominate a neighbour.
Unlike many of our competitors, we only make available to purchase online bikes we actually have in stock here in our store − we don't ever remote warehouse or SIM feedstock with multiple day delays.
Furthermore, we aim to have all our bikes pre-built and available for immediate dispatch or for in-store collection, once you have ordered a bike from us one of our mechanics will package your bike into one of our custom-built boxes.
These extra-large boxes allow us to ship most bikes fully assembled but before we do so our mechanics will carry out a PDI (pre-delivery inspection) on the bike to ensure that before it's prepared for shipping everything is set up correctly, e.g., brakes, gear indexing etc.
Upon receiving your bike, you will simply need to take your new bike out of the box, turn and tighten the handlebars and fit one of the pedals (if your bike comes with pedals). In some instances, such as for road bikes, you may also need to attach the handlebars as they're too wide to simply be rotated so they'll be secured to the side of the frame with zip ties.
