What it's built for:
The Samedi series from French manufacturer Moustache is billed as their most versatile line, built for the day-in-day-out commuter who wants a bike that encourages them to take the road less traveled on the way home. They are bread and butter commuter bikes with a bit of mountain bike flair thrown in for extra utility. The Xroad 27 series is just an unbridled Moustache classic exemplifying the versatility and fun that are coming our way thanks to electric bikes. Before you may have had to choose between a commuter and a weekend adventure bike, no longer Xroad 27s do both and much more.
Why we love it:
In total there are 13(!) different models in the Samedi line so while they all cross the line between commuting and adventure they each have their own unique approach to creating a great bike. This Xroad 1 is the classic-framed entry-level bike of the bunch, keeping everything you need for an unforgettable ride while doing away with some pricier extras. It still uses Bosch's award-winning Active line motor and comes fully kitted out with everything you need to haul your bags along, see and be seen on the road, and keep you dry no matter the weather. If you're looking for a great way to get onto a Moustache, this is it.
