eSPRESSO L 700 EQ

 

Our refined city e-bike, fitted with a low maintenance hub gear and fully equipped for urban duties. Smoothly integrated 630 Wh battery and refined Shimano E6100 motor.

Getting around the city shouldn't be a drag - and with the eSPRESSO L 700 EQ, it never will be. Even if you're on your way to work, coming back fully laden from the shops or just off to visit friends, our high-quality aluminium frame paired with refined Shimano E6100 drive unit and long-lasting 630 Wh battery will make it easy. The low-maintenance Shimano Nexus hub gear delivers huge gear range options without the complexity of a traditional drivetrain, while hydraulic disc brakes offer predictable power in all conditions.

The eSPRESSO L range is the perfect partner for urban riding, offering comfort and practicality. Standard-fit mudguards, lights, lock, rack and kickstand mean you’re ready to go from the moment you leave the shop. Choose between frames with internally mounted batteries of either 750 Wh, 630 Wh or 504 Wh capacity or a more economical, 504 Wh semi-integrated design. All use a range of powerful Shimano STEPS drive units, with the option of the sporty EP8 motor on some models. Low step-through frame options on all models help ease mounting and dismounting. Suspension forks offer improved control, while powerful hydraulic disc brakes give reliable and controllable stopping power in all weather conditions. The 700c wheels have wide 50 mm tyres for extra grip and comfort, plus reflective sidewalls strips improve rider safety in low light. Internally routed cables give a sleek look, while a 150 kg maximum system weight means plenty of carrying capacity.

Technologies

IMAGE

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.

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

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. 

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

SLIDER DROPOUT

The slider dropout offers plenty of horizontal adjustment for smooth and easy chain tensioning of hub gear systems, without the need of an added chain tensioner. Its voluminous design offers optimum frame stiffness.

ENERGY GUARD TWIST

Twist lock mechanism that is located at the top end of the 'Energy Guard' battery cover, for easy locking and unlocking of the protective internal battery cover.
