Merida eSpresso 800eq sport is a city hybrid style e-bike designed for the recreational rider who doesn’t want to be limited to one kind of terrain. This bike is well suited to less able bodied riders who will find getting on and off the bike more comfortable with the unisex step-though design frame. Don’t let limited flexibility or fitness stop you from riding any more.
The Shimano E6000 mid-drive pedal assist system makes worrying about hills a thing of the past. A 250w motor ensures effortless riding wherever you choose to go. The assistance provided feels smooth and intuitive and is entirely adjustable by the rider, on the fly, with handlebar mounted controls. The bike also has a “walk” function helping with easy manoeuvring whilst not riding the bike.
The gearing on the eSPresso 800eq is also fully integrated into the pedalec system. It utilises the ultra-smooth and reliable Shimano Alfine internally geared hub paired with the stunning Di2 electronic shifting system. This means that this bike can be run in a fully automatic mode where the bike takes care of all the gear shifts for you, or can change gears manually with the simple push of a button.
Based around an aluminium frame designed specifically for the Shimano STePS system, the eSpresso isn’t carrying any weight it doesn’t have too. A suspension fork at the front provides a smooth ride, and reduces fatigue when riding on rough surfaces.
Wide 42c touring tyres provide good puncture resistance and grip in a range of conditions, without sacrificing rolling efficiency. Combine these tyres with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes equipped to the bike and you have smooth and reliable stopping power whatever the weather or road conditions.
The Merida eSpresso 800eq City provides the rider with a comfortable and upright riding position, on a bike that isn’t limited to one style of terrain.
