The Merida eSpresso family are extremely versatile and sit on fast-rolling 700c tyres, perfect for use in town, on gravel tracks or cycle paths.
Batteries are mounted low to keep the centre of gravity down and tapered head tubes deliver confidence-inspiring handling. The latest generation eSpresso sees the integration of the battery into the down tube giving a very similar look to a regular bike. The use of Shimano motors and the integrated battery means delivers an optimised centre of gravity so not only does it look like but it also rides like a regular bike. Fully equipped with mudguards, rack, kickstand, lock and lights the eSpresso 400 EQ uses a Shimano Steps 6100 series 60NM motor with a powerful 504W battery
Fast-Rolling 700c Wheels
All eSPRESSO e-bikes roll-on fast-rolling 700c wheels, ideal for rides on roads, lanes and smooth tracks. Merida fit tyres with reflective sidewalls and puncture protection that will get you to your destination quickly and safely. However, their 'classic' eSPRESSO frames can also take 650B wheels if desired.
Ready to Go
The eSpresso 400 S EQ comes equipped with mudguards, lights, lock, rear rack and a kickstand, making them ready for anything from the moment you leave the store.
The system weight of a bike is the combined weight of the 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.
Internal Cable Routing
Merida features internal cable routing on all eSPRESSO bikes. Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. Only a clever system for our internal guiding and fixing guarantees reliable and rattle free routing, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt and gives the bike a cleaner look.
