2020 Merida eSpresso TK 600 EQ Matt Black and Anthracite
Urban mobility for most cyclists doesn't end at the city limits and leaving the urban jungle to reach further afield locations has become even more accessible with e-bikes. So nowadays bikes must be versatile and real all-rounders. That's the reason why Merida combined the best features of two different bike categories, city bikes and off-road bikes in their new eSPRESSO TK and CC for those who wish to take advantage of a comfortable city low step-in bikes but do not want to miss the robustness, power and freedom that an off-road bike offers.
To offer the best setup for both demands, city and off-road cycling, Merida offer two different model specifications. While the TK models are clearly more city oriented, but still giving the rider the possibility for light off-road riding on for example gravel roads, the CC models are more off-road oriented in their specifications but can also be used for city riding. The eSPRESSO TK with its trekking focus, makes it a great companion around town as well as on gentle gravel tracks and lanes. For that reason, the TK is specced with a 2.2" city pattern tyre which offers plenty of comfort due to the large air volume and is fast and quiet. To provide the eSPRESSO TK with a more comfortable and upright riding position, the bike comes with a specific handlebar, with a 35° back sweep, that helps to reduce the pressure on the lower back. The modern design in combination with its purposeful and hugely comfortable geometry, as well as the seamless integration of Shimano’s powerful STePS motors, sets the eSPRESSO TK apart from other city e-bikes. A centrally positioned low centre of gravity, which has been achieved through the positioning of the battery in the lower position of the downtube as well as the location of the Shimano mid-mounted motor, combined with an extremely strong and stiff frame, enables the eSPRESSO TK deliver fantastic riding characteristics in any situation, including city, trekking, light off-road, commuting, bike touring and days out.
