It might be the most affordable bike in the range, but the eSPRESSO CITY 300 EQ SE uses that budget wisely. Shimano's proven, high value for money E5000 pedal-assist motor is powered by a semi-integrated 504 Wh battery and we've fitted an impressive level of kit as standard, including mudguards, lights, rack, lock and a kickstand. Strong but controllable hydraulic disc brakes help you stop with ease, while the Shimano 9-speed drivetrain offers clean and smooth shifts.

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.

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.

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.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

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.
