Joining together urban practicality with the willingness to explore is no easy feat, but the eBIG.TOUR 400 EQ does just that, with the latest Shimano EP8 drive unit giving you smooth yet powerful assistance whenever you need it. Large volume tyres, a suspension fork and mountain bike inspired geometry deliver capable and confident handling whenever you want an adventure, but the low-step-through frame design with integrated 630 Wh battery and generous standard fit equipment including mudguards and lighting have your everyday needs covered, so there’s no need to compromise.
Are practicality and excitement mutually exclusive? We don’t think so - and neither does the eBIG.TOUR. It’s a reliable day-to-day companion for riding to work that’s equally happy taking you on big adventures off the beaten track, thanks to a winning combination of mountain bike inspired geometry with low step-through frame practicality. A powerful and smooth Shimano pedal-assist motor is integrated cleanly into the aluminium frame, while a suspension fork and high-volume tyres provide comfort and safety. Add in standard fit mudguards, racks, lighting, wheel lock and a kickstand plus long-lasting 630 Wh battery and you’ll realise you’ve got the best of all worlds.
HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM
Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.
Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.
Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.
INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails or roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.
PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM
Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand).
CASTING MOTOR BRACKET
Sophisticated shape only possible due to casting technology, creating an integrated appearance as well as an extremely strong connection between the E-bike motor and frame for improved performance and reliability.
ENERGY GUARD TWIST
Twist lock mechanism that is located at the top end of the 'Energy Guard' battery cover, for easy locking and unlocking of the protective internal battery cover.
‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.
‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.
