eSPRESSO CC 400 SE EQ

 

Versatile value is the order of the day, with rugged 650b rubber and city e-bike convenience paired together with kit that just gets on with the job, like the strong Shimano drive unit and drivetrain.

With a mix of value and performance that's hard to beat, the eSPRESSO CC 400 SE EQ pairs a semi-integrated 504 Wh battery, trekking dedicated Shimano E6100 drive unit and rugged, off-road-ready rubber. That means it's able to take trips on forest tracks and trails while still retaining the urban practicality you expect from a convenient, low step-through frame design. Adding in high-value equipment such as a 9-speed Shimano drivetrain and strong hydraulic disc brakes means reliable performance without the big price tag too.

The eSPRESSO CC range is the rugged sibling of the regular eSPRESSO CITY, with wider and grippier high-volume tyres on 650b wheels. While it's happy working hard in the urban jungle thanks to standard-fit mudguards, lights, lock, rack and kickstand, it's also capable of taking trips along forest trails and gravel tracks for fun. Models with the low step-through ENERGY CRADLE frame design come with either 630 Wh or 750 Wh fully-integrated batteries, while a more economical semi-integrated frame comes with a 504 Wh battery. All come with a refined but powerful Shimano STEPS pedal-assist motor, including the sporty EP8 unit on some models. Smooth and comfortable progress is assured with suspension forks on all models, while powerful hydraulic disc brakes allow effortless and controlled stopping. All have a high system weight of 150 kg which means plenty of capacity for rider and luggage.

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.

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).

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.
