    HIGHLIGHTS

    A centrally positioned low centre of gravity, which has been achieved through the positioning of the battery in the lower position of the downtube as well as the location of the Shimano motors, enables to deliver fantastic riding characteristics in any situation 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.

    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.

    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 one of the lowest step-through heights in the market.

    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.

    Technologies

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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).

    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.
