eSPRESSO CC 400 SE EQ by Merida, $4,699.99
With a mix of value and performance that’s hard to beat! 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. The 9-speed Shimano drivetrain and strong hydraulic disc brakes means reliable performance without the big price tag too.
The 27.5”wheels are fitted with big volume Maxxis Crossmark II tyres to provide colossal levels of puncture protection and traction.
Cables are internally routed. EQ means this bike comes equipped with lights, a kickstand, rear rack, mudguards and Abus frame lock.
