The Merida eSpeeder 200 combines the urban fitness machine that is the Merida Speeder and adds modern e-bike components for fast and efficient ride. The eSpeeder is for the rider that sometimes needs a helping hand on those challenging climbs yet still wants to pedal easily with punchy performance that isn’t weighed down by the extra weight. This bike separates itself from traditional e-bikes in that it looks like your everyday flat bar road bike thanks to the advanced MAHLE e-bike motion X35+ Rear Hub Motor (40 Nm) which is compact and extremely light so that you have a natural riding experience when you go beyond the 25 km/h maximum support level. Matched with the MAHLE B1-C 250Wh Battery that is integrated into the lightweight alloy frame for a clean look that makes this bike look like any other flat bar road bike.
This setup adds minimal additional drag for an excellent riding experience, while the intelligent software gives you the opportunity to set the support levels at usage-specific levels to set up for your specific riding preferences e.g., commuting. Merida has placed the iWOC on/off switch on the top tube to help keep the cockpit tidy, ensuring that it is always in reach and in all conditions. This switch is not just an on/off switch, but the rider can also toggle between the different support level by pressing the button.
While the e-bike components are impressive it is loaded with reliable spec across the board. It is equipped with a 2x9 speed Shimano Drivetrain with Shimano MT-200 Hydraulic Disc Brakes for excellent braking control. It rolls on 700x40c Continental Urban Tyres for an incredibly smooth and comfortable ride that can handle any bumps. The Merida eSpeeder 200 brings a new generation of e-bikes that feels and rides like a regular flat bar, just with high quality e-bike components to help you out when you’re tired or tackling hills.
1.5 Inch Head Tube: Higher system weights and increased cornering speeds demand precise steering. Our 1 1/2" oversized head tube, combined with a tapered fork, deliver exactly that, giving the rider the confidence to push into the next corner that little bit harder.
Get Kitted Out: Our e700C LITE frame comes with multiple fixing points, allowing for fenders, rear rack and a kick stand to be fitted. This makes all three models very adaptable in case you want to turn your sporty e-road bike into a fast commuter or touring bike. The eSPEEDER 400 EQ comes fully kitted out as standard - ready for the daily commuting duties.
Plenty of Width: Depending on your preferences or the terrain you are going to ride on, you can fit 700c wheels with up to 40 mm tyres, even when fenders are fitted. If you prefer 650B wheels, then up to 47 mm wide off-road biased tyres are no problem.
MAHLE Battery & Motor: The rear hub MAHLE motor system X35+offers 40 Nm of smooth and drag-free support and is powered by a 250 Wh internal battery. The system is controlled by a one-button iWOC switch which is positioned on the top tube. Different colours of the switch indicate the support as well as the battery level.
Go Further: Should the 250 Wh battery not be enough, or you are intending to go for an extra-long outing, then you can fit a 250 Wh range extender. The range extender can be attached to one of the bottle cage fixing points and plugs straight into the system for immediate range extension.
What Cables: All cables are run internally, to give the bike a neat look as well as protect them from moisture and dirt. On our e-road bikes, we go one step further by letting all cables enter the frame through a specific headset cup, making the cockpit super clean and clutter-free.
eLite Road Frame: HFS-hydroforming Prolite 66 triple butted aluminium frame with internal 250 Wh battery technology. Comfort orientated geometry and usable with 700c or 650B wheels. Tyre clearance of up to 40 mm with fenders (700c). Fixing points for mudguards, rear rack and kickstand
