A low centre of gravity, paired with a strong and stiff frame enables the eSPRESSO CITY to deliver fantastic riding characteristics in any situation. The eSpresso City 300 is powered by Shimano Steps E5000 motor and a Shimano 500 watt-hour lithium battery.
OPTIMISED CENTRE OF GRAVITY
Based on the central position of the battery in front of the seat tube and the low position of the Shimano motor, we were able to achieve an optimum centre of gravity. The low and well-positioned centre of gravity provides the bike with outstanding riding characteristics which are extremely important in particular in wave low step-through frames which have the tendency to chatter and jitter when power is applied.
In the city/trekking sector, hub gear drivetrains have become more or less the standard. For the model year 2020, we have updated the hub gear frames with slider dropouts for smooth and easy chain tensioning. Furthermore, the dropouts on both frames, hub gear and derailleur drivetrain now have, besides the Racktime interface, standard carrier mounts.
eSPRESSO CITY FRAME
HFS-hydroforming Prolite 66 triple butted aluminium frame based around fast rolling 700c wheels and with commuting and leisure riding in mind. A higher front end and a compact geometry make for a more upright and extremely comfortable riding position. Battery positioned extra low for improved handling. Comes equipped with mudguards, rear rack, side stand, lock and lights.
INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING / SMART ENTRY
We feature internal cable routing on all our eSPRESSO models. 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 and gives the bike a cleaner look.
EXCELLENT FRAME STIFFNESS
The outstanding frame stiffness has a strong influence on the riding characteristics of wave low step through frames. The tapered head tube, the large tube diameters, the forged motor bracket as well as the 142x12 mm through rear axle all contribute to achieve a safe and precise riding experience.
FAST ROLLING 700C WHEELS
The whole range rides on fast rolling 700c wheels, ideal for rides on roads, lanes and smooth tracks. We fit tyres with reflective sidewalls and puncture protection that will get you to your destination quickly and safely.
