The eSpresso 700 Tour is a hybrid urban e-bike designed for the commuter and recreational rider who doesn’t want to be limited to one kind of terrain. The bike is well suited to riders who don’t necessarily have the fitness to ride as far they as they would like. The eSpresso 700 also allows for easier long distance commuting for people who felt intimidated by the distance.

 

eSPRESSO LITE II FRAME

HFS-hydroforming Prolite 66 triple butted aluminium frame with internal battery technology, 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. Comes equipped (or ready to be equipped) with mudguards, rear rack, side stand, lock and lights.

 

ENERGY GUARD

A two-component battery cover, which offers perfect protection for the internal battery. 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. All critical parts like the rubber strap and o-rings for perfect fitting can be replaced.

 

SHIMANO INTEGRATED BATTERY

The new Shimano BT-E8035 internal battery has a very compact size design which is optimised for the integrated use in the down tube. The battery is equipped with modern, up-to-date battery cells, which are very durable and long lasting. Even after 1000 charging cycles it still has 60% of the capacity, which is currently the best in its class. 

 

EQUIPPED OR NOT

The eSPRESSO range comes either in regular or equipped version, which features mudguards, lights, rear rack and a kickstand. That means you are ready for anything from the moment you leave the store. And if your bike is non-equipped, then you have all fixing points in place, ready for when you want to add fenders and a carrier.

 

FAST ROLLING 700C WHEELS OR COMFORTABLE 650B WHEELS

Our 'classic' eSPRESSO range sits on fast rolling 700c wheels, ideal for rides on roads, lanes and smooth tracks. We fit 50 mm wide tyres with reflective side walls and puncture protection that will get you to your destination quickly and safely. On the other hand, at our 650B eSPRESSO TK and CC, big volume 650B tyres are specified, which not only offer better comfort but also guarantee better puncture protection.

 

SYSTEM WEIGHT

The system weight of a bike is the combined weight of bike, rider and additional luggage. The allowed system weight here 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 / 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.

 

MULTIPLE OPTIONS

In our eSPRESSO range, you can choose between the classic diamond or the extra low step-through (yet super torsionally stiff) frame so that you can find the ideal bike for your preferences. We also offer a variety of different motor and battery combinations in our eSPRESSO range giving you even more choice to select the perfect eSPRESSO for your needs.
