Moustache Xroad 3 2018 (open frame)

Samedi 27 Xroad, Moustache took advantage of the potential of 27.5“ wheels and Hutchinson Python tires, which roll well but provide good comfort and traction thanks to their many small studs. Equipped with a mud guard, QL3-compatible rear rack, kickstand and high-performance lighting, Samedi 27 Xroad has everything it needs for efficient everyday use. It uses our new hydroformed frame with integrated Bosch battery on Xroad 3

This truly unique low-step versatile eBike was initially designed for our rental fleet in Queenstown.  We badgered the chief designer Emmanual Antonot at Moustache to design us a bike for our NZ riders who not only wanted to nip of to work on their eBike but also wanted to spend a few days out on a rail trail and the like.   The low-step frame allows for easy mount/dismount, especially under emergency stop situations where the rider is forced to jump forward off the seat.  The low centre of gravity is evident when riding the Xroad 3 as it inspires confidence at low speeds.

Comfort is achieved with an upright riding position, comfort gel saddle, suspension seatpost, on-road/off-road tyres and suspension fork.

Moustache chose to integrate the standard Bosch battery rather than create a proprietary battery that will only fit the specific ebike.  This eliminates the headache when riders wish to swap batteries, achieves an even lower centre of gravity AND sports the most handsome proportions of any eBike in the land!


The market leader when it comes to versatility, equally comfortable in the city and off-road thanks to its design and wise components selection.


New 6061 T4 T6 aluminium frame. Variable thickness hydroformed tubes. Hidden Power exclusive technology, ultra-practical and high performance. Even integrated, the battery remains easy to install, easy to remove, easy to carry, easy to swap! Awesome for daily use!
