Steering is strong and precise with great handling thanks to a 780mm wide handlebar that’s both relatively lightweight and tough!
Ultra powerful and progressive Shimano XT 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes are super-responsive. Furthermore, they feel precise, powerful and enduring. 203mm rotors on both front and rear ensure immense stopping power at all times.

Powered by a whopping 625Wh fully integrated battery ensures extended range and hours of fun on the downhills and trails.
Bursting with Features
The Game 8 features double wall alloy rims, that are both strong and lightweight. They’re eBike specific, 31mm wide and tubeless compatible. It’s both stable and agile thanks to a set of 29×2.50 Maxxis Assegai tyres, tubeless compatible on the front and rear. The 29er sized tyres offer immense forward momentum, as well as providing the perfect balance of grip and maneuverability.
The high end Shimano XT 12-speed gearing combines with a huge range 10-51T cassette that will help conquer any potentially grueling ascent. The Samedi 29 Game 8 is indeed capable of climbing the very steepest of hills with ease!
As expected, there’s a fully integrated KS-Ragei dropper seat-post utilising a hydraulic cartridge and remote lever.
