If one must name a type of bike that nowadays has exploded in popularity, that is definitely the gravel bike. A kind of hybrid model between a racing bike - featuring the same frame geometry and handlebar shapes (even less extreme), and a mountain bike, which instead comes close in terms of tyre size and tread pattern. All this, on the new Bottecchia Merak e-gravel bike is combined with the 250W Oli engine and 85 Nm of torque, namely up to 400% of the force applied by the cyclist on the pedals. Bottecchia Merak, available in Road, Gravel and Cross versions with Sram Apex or SX gearbox, allows to easily tackle the most uneven terrain and routes by assuming a relaxed position even over long distances.
