eSPRESSO CC 675 - Urban Electric Bike of the Year contender on Bikeradar


In their annual Bike of the Year shootout, the team at MBUK, Cycling Plus and Bikeradar don’t just look at the latest enduro, trail, race and gravel bikes (see the story about our SILEX 7000 being a Bike of the Year contender in the gravel category here), but they also look at bikes with a more urban focus, like our eSPRESSO CC 675.

One of the first things that caught their eye was the rugged specification and the large battery that “impressed where it matters most” and gave the eSPRESSO the right to claim to be “as much a multi-terrain machine as an urban commuter bike.”  

Further to that, the frame with its super low-step shape “makes it easy to get onboard, and the ride position is just as easy to live with”. The specification, which includes a large 750Wh battery and powerful EP6 engine, reliable drivetrain, easy-to-control brakes and off-road bias tyres, all contribute to making the eSPRESSO "a brilliant all-round urban and suburban bike".

Their final verdict:
“The eSpresso CC is a very capable, well-equipped electric bike and the Shimano powertrain offers loads of smooth assistance on tap.

The ride position is excellent and the contact points bring comfort without being overly squishy. The burly, go-anywhere tyres are great if you intend to mix up surfaces and terrain, but if you intend to stay mainly on the tarmac, you may find the chunky treads a little sluggish.

In all, the eSpresso is a go-anywhere urban ebike with enough in the tank to get you a long way from the urban sprawl and into the great outdoors.”
