Merida Espresso 600 EQ Electric Hybrid Bike Matt Black (2018)
Up to 12 months interest free
The Merida eSpresso 600 EQ E-Hybrid is the perfect bike for commuting in style and comfort. The 600 EQ comes with STePS E8000 motor and E8010 battery, Shimano’s latest mid-drive pedal assist system. This gives a very natural riding experience, where the hills are a breeze and you’ll get where you need to go without breaking a sweat.
The eSpresso 600 EQ E-Hybrid bike is built with an incredibly light and durable triple butted aluminium frame and along with the tapered headtube, gives you the best possible stiffness to weight ratio. The aesthetics of the frame are taken care of with the smooth welding process giving it that clean carbon look, while the cables are internally routed and protected from the elements.
This e-bike comes equipped with hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano, giving you the ultimate control over braking in all conditions. While the drivetrain and shifting is also taken care of by Shimano, including a Deore Shadow+ derailleur to virtually eliminate the chance of dropping a chain and ensures a quiet ride. The SR Suntour fork will take care of the rough stuff and when combined with the wide 42c tyres from Continental, you’ll get a silky smooth ride.
The Merida eSpresso 600 EQ is a hybrid-bike built for commuting and riding with friends in urban environments. You can ride further, faster and easier with the fun and exciting Merida eSpresso 600 EQ.
Prolite 66 Triple Butted Aluminum 2018: 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.
X-Taper Headtube 2018: Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.
Smooth Welding 2018: 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.
Internal Cable 2018: 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.
Smart Entry 2018: Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trail gets rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
Di2 Ready 2018: 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.
C-S Post Mount Disc 2018: Post mount disc brake calipers fit directly onto the seat stay for a strong and light connection whilst a chainstay post mount positions the caliper on the chainstay within the rear triangle for extra protection and better distribution of braking forces. Another benefit is that internal cable routing is also easier and neater via the chainstay.
12-142 Thru-Axle 2018: Selected front forks use a 100 mm wide through axle 12 or 15 mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness. A 142 mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal and replacement.
15-100 Thru-Axle 2018: Selected front forks use a 100 mm wide through axle 12 or 15 mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness. A 142 mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal and replacement.
F-Mount 2018: ‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.
K-Mount Drop-Out 2018: Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kick stand.
C-Mount 2018: ‘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.

In September 1972, Ike Tseng (1932–2012) a brilliant engineer and visionary founded MERIDA. While visiting the USA, Ike saw a sign in a bike shop that stated refusal to repair any Taiwanese bikes, due to the unfavourable quality. As a result of this he set out to fulfil his dream of high quality bikes made in Taiwan and formed the MERIDA Industry Company Ltd.
The MERIDA name has three syllables Me-Ri-Da and it is the company’s intention to manufacture beautiful, high quality bikes that enables everyone to reach their destination enjoyably. MERIDA created a world-leading bike factory but Ike still wasn’t satisfied, so in 1988 the MERIDA brand was launched. Ike’s vision is still very much a part of MERIDA, manufacturing all kinds of bikes from children’s bikes to world-class professional road and mountain bikes for the Bahrain- MERIDA team riders. Everybody has a different journey, and everyone can benefit from a MERIDA.
