    HIGHLIGHTS

    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. 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.

    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.

    The suspension fork can be locked out on the XT-EDITION and 900 EQ models – via a ‘remote control’ lever on the handlebar. Perfect for smooth climbs or when you push hard on the pedals while standing up. 

    Tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/2" in the bottom. Combined with a tapered steerer tube (the respective part on the fork) creates superb stiffness and precise confidence-inspiring steering.

    ‘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 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.

    PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM

    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.

    X-TAPER HEADTUBE

    Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

    IMAGE

    SMOOTH WELDING

    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.

    INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

    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.

    IMAGE

    SMART ENTRY

    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.

    DI2 READY

    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.
