  • The eSPRESSO CITY 400 EQ pairs our latest smart and stiff low step-through frame with an internally mounted 504 Wh battery and Shimano's trekking dedicated E6100 drive unit to deliver impressive function at an even more impressive price. With equipment that's chosen to deliver the best balance of performance and price, it's the smart way to get around the city. Shimano's workhorse 9-speed drivetrain and strong hydraulic brakes won't let you down, while the bike comes fitted with guards, rack, lights, lock and a kickstand as standard, meaning no expensive add-ons are needed to get rolling.

    Life in the city can be hectic, so anything that allows you to make the best use of your time has to be a good thing. The eSPRESSO CITY is all about getting you where you want to without fuss and in comfort, thanks to a range of smooth yet powerful pedal-assist motors, a convenient low-step-through frame and standard fit equipment such as lock, mudguards, lights and rack that make navigating urban life that much easier. All models (except 300 SE EQ) feature the ENERGY CRADLE frame design that holds the internal (model depending) battery with an even lower and wider step-through frame with excellent stiffness, plus derailleur or low-maintenance hub gearing options.

    To reduce production and delivery times, we are sometimes forced to make last-minute specification changes. Please be aware that those changes might not be reflected on these product pages and images.

    Technologies

    IMAGE

    HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM

    Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.

    IMAGE

    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.

    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.

    IMAGE

    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

    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.

    IMAGE

    RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

    We use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The pay back is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.

    IMAGE

    F-MOUNT

    ‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.

    IMAGE

    K-MOUNT

    Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand).

    K-MOUNT
    IMAGE

    C-MOUNT

    ‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable. 

    IMAGE

    CASTING MOTOR BRACKET

    Sophisticated shape only possible due to casting technology, creating an integrated appearance as well as an extremely strong connection between the E-bike motor and frame for improved performance and reliability.

    IMAGE

    ENERGY CRADLE

    Unique cradle like shaping of the downtube to accommodate the battery, without adding any cut-outs and through that losing the all-important frame stiffness of our low step through frames. Paired with an aluminium battery cover, the frames give the impression of an integrated battery, without sacrificing stability and battery accessibility.

    IMAGE

    WIRE PORT

    MERIDA designed headsets that allow all control cables to enter the frame through the headset, creating a clean and uncluttered look, without making structural changes to the frame. Depending on the model, the cables are run completely internally (including bar and stem) or semi-integrated where the cables enter the frame underneath the stem.
