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 3 model puts to use Moustache's new integrated battery design making it not only a visually striking bike but a very well balanced one as well. Plus they upgrade you to the more powerful Bosch Active Line motor paired with a wide-range 10-speed drivetrain, perfect for sailing through headwinds and flattening any hills in your path. And because it's a Moustache you know it comes with a complete kit of commuting accessories, rack, fenders, lights are all included and beautifully integrated.
