THE OMNIPOTENT SUV AMONGST THE MERIDA e-bikes
SUV – ‘Sports Utility Vehicles’ – a term from the automotive industry that characterises off-road vehicles with an urban orientation. It defines cars that offer comfortable day to day usability while being ready for some off-road fun. Our engineers have managed to create the perfect balance between moderate commuting bike and sporty MTB with our eBIG.SEVEN and eBIG.NINE models. Powered by an intelligent mixture of STePS E8000 battery (500 Wh) and ‘Light Offroad’ E6000 motor or new for 2018 with the powerful E8000 motor and battery combination, the eBIG.SEVEN/NINE enable you to combine the daily commute with a sporty trail detour on the way home. The modern frame features the latest technologies like front and rear through axles and Boost Standard to further improve wheel strength. Even with its sporty geometry our eBIG.SEVEN/NINE are e-bikes that can be turned into the perfect day to day machine by adding mud guards and rear rack.
The geometry of our eBIG.NINE as well as eBIG.SEVEN follow one very simple principle: as sporty as possible, as comfortable as necessary. You ride to work in the morning but rather often fancy a little off road detour on the way home? No problem – that is what these bikes are made for!
SPORT AND DAY-TO-DAY? WHY NOT!
Our eBIG.NINE / eBIG.SEVEN is your perfect partner for sporty day-to-day usage due to its geometry and riding character. Commuting to the office, short spins after work, relaxed outings at the weekend. Something as useful as a kick stand should not be missing.
TWO BIKES, TWO WHEEL SIZES
The bigger the wheel, the better the ability to roll over rough ground…however: a smaller wheel is easier to accelerate and is usually stiffer. Our eBIG.NINE and eBIG.SEVEN can cater for both – you decide what’s right for you!
Cables and hoses – what you can’t see doesn’t affect the clean lines of our sporty e-MTBs. Only our clever system for internal guiding and fixing guarantees reliable and rattle free routing. All held in place with our ‘Smart Entry’ system and all ready for your next worry and rattle free trip.
GET THE RIGHT TRAVEL
100 mm up front offers lots of comfort while having plenty of reserves when you choose a more ‘off road’ route home. Ultimately e-MTBs encourage the rider to go ‘off the beaten track’ whenever possible.
The battery of the STePS E8000 is perfectly integrated into the hydroformed down tube and delivers an impressive 500 Wh for never ending trips. For 2018 you can choose between the more economical E6000 motor or the high performance E8000 power unit.
