Merida eSpresso CC 400 SE EQ Step Through Trekking Electric Bike, Shimano E6100 - Gloss Black
"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."
Two Frame Options
The eSPRESSO CC is available with the new 'Energy Cradle' frame, where the 745 or 630 Wh battery (depending on model) is housed on top of the downtube, and can be accessed via a removable aluminium battery cover, or as a semi-integrated frame, where the 504 Wh battery is integrated into the lower part of the downtube.
The eSPRESSO CC come fully equipped with fenders, kickstand, carrier and lights. Ready for any outing you can think of.
650B Wheels & Big Volume Tyres
"The decision to use 650B wheels with 2.25" off-road tread pattern for our CC models is not just a design feature but has more practical reasons. To add big volume tyres to an e-bike provides increased comfort but also extra traction and therefore more safety reserves. Small and even bigger bumps can easily be rolled over, and a big volume tyre provides more puncture protection compared to a narrow one."
Internal Cable Routing
We feature internal cable routing on all models. Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. Only a clever system for our internal guiding and fixing guarantees reliable and rattle free routing, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt and gives the bike a cleaner look.
The Shimano mid-mounted motor, in combination with the forged motor bracket provides one of the lowest step-through heights in the market.
