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.

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.

‘K-mount’ featuring bikes have fixing points on the chain stays to fit a MERIDA kickstand while ‘C-mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing point for the rear rack (carrier) integrated. ‘F-mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for the mudguards (fenders) already integrated.

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. 

The Shimano mid-mounted motor in combination with the forged motor bracket provides the eSPRESSO CITY with one of the lowest step through heights in the market.

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.

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.




Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.



Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.



Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.



Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.



Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails or roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.



Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.



In-board brake mounts are positioned within the rear triangle to protect them. The caliper supported by the stronger chainstay is able to distribute braking forces better. Internal cable routing is also easier and neater via the chainstay.


15-100 THRU-AXLE

Selected front forks use a 100 mm wide through axle 15 mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness.


12-142 THRU-AXLE

A 142 mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal and replacement.
