You don’t need to blow the budget to get a reliable city e-bike. With a semi-integrated battery, strong Shimano motor and plenty of standard-fit equipment, it’s ready to go as soon as you are.

It might be the most affordable bike in the range, but the eSPRESSO CITY 300 EQ SE uses that budget wisely. Shimano’s proven, high value for money E5000 pedal-assist motor is powered by a semi-integrated 418 Wh battery and we’ve fitted an impressive level of kit as standard, including mudguards, lights, rack, lock and a kickstand. Strong but controllable hydraulic disc brakes help you stop with ease, while the Shimano 9-speed drivetrain offers clean and smooth shifts.

Life in the city can be hectic, so anything that allows you to make the best use of your time has to be a good thing. The eSPRESSO CITY is all about getting you where you want to without fuss and in comfort, thanks to a range of smooth yet powerful pedal-assist motors, a convenient low-step-through frame and standard fit equipment such as lock, mudguards, lights and rack that make navigating urban life that much easier. All models (except 300 SE EQ) feature the ENERGY CRADLE frame design that holds the internal (model depending) battery with an even lower and wider step-through frame with excellent stiffness, plus derailleur or low-maintenance hub gearing options.
