Unique cradle like shaping of the downtube to accommodate the battery, without losing the all important frame stiffness of our low step-through frames. By not adding cutouts to the downtube, we can maintain the outstanding frame stiffness, that prevents our low step-through bikes from wobbling under load. Paired with an aluminium battery cover, the frames give the impression of an integrated battery, without sacrificing stability and battery accessibility. The tapered head tube, the large tube diameters and the forged motor bracket all contribute to achieving a safe and precise riding experience.
In the city/trekking sector, hub gear drivetrains have become more or less the standard. We offer eSPRESSO CITY hub gear frames with slider dropouts for smooth and easy chain tensioning. Furthermore, the dropouts on both frames, hub gear and derailleur drivetrain, have standard carrier mounts.
The eSPRESSO CITY range is equipped with the new stylish Massload rear carrier, that offers a maximum load of 27 kg and features an integrated rear light.
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 motors, enables to deliver fantastic riding characteristics in any situation which are extremely important in particular in wave low step through frames which have the tendency to chatter and jitter when power is applied.
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.
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.
