If it’s an all rounder of an e-bike you’re looking for, then the Samedi 27 Open Xroad 3 from Moustache is hard to beat. Why buy several different bikes for differing rides when one will do the lot! This gutsy performer is an urban, touring and hard tail mountain bike all wrapped up in one. Moustache have worked hard to develop such a thing of beauty, and they’ve succeeded in style. Designed in response to the demands of a multitude of riders, eager for such a multi-purpose electric bike, the Xroad 3 was born. Gentle enough for commuting and touring, the Xroad 3 equally has wheels, front suspension and gearbox for full off-road use.
The all round nature of the 27.5″ tyre is at the heart of the Open Xroad 3. Fit a pair of Hutchinson Python tyres sporting a plethora of mini studs, and the end result is a tyre with excellent roll but with equally good comfort and traction. Hard tarmac roads, railway cuttings, canal tow paths and loose ground are easily dealt with. It’s strong too. With Alex double-walled rims and reinforcement eyelets, the Xroad 3 can deliver great performance. A nice pair of XCM ATB forks with hydraulic lockout ensure versatility and ease of adaptability, whatever the terrain. An wide cassette utilising 11-36T ensures broad gear ratios and easy hill climbing. A Shimano Deore 10-speed derailleur works a treat on this stunning e-bike. Working in unison with Shimano Rapidfire shifters, means gear changes are slick, clean and true. Hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano acting on 180mm and 160mm rotors ensure effective braking at all times.
Equipped with a mudguards, ORTLIEB-ready luggage rack, kickstand and high-performance lighting from AXA and Pixeo, the Samedi 27 Open Xroad 3 has everything it needs for outstanding performance.
