New frame design
With its unique triple cavity frame design, Moustache didn’t compromise on stiffness or weight unlike many other open frame designs flooding the bike industry. The result is a low step, light weight frame with perfect handling and a sleek silhouette to boot!
An 80mm travel fork and a suspension seatpost, the Moustache Xroad 3 Open is the epitome of versatility and comfort.
Why did the team at Moustache labour over this frame design for three years? In order to have an ultra low-step frame, the top tube which provides most of the strength, must be completely removed. Normally this will result in a frame with excessive flex giving wobbly handling. To add strength, many manufacturers simply add more metal, that of course results in more weight and often without achieving the lateral stiffness required for the confident handling of an eBike.
For so many reasons the Moustache Xroad 3 Open is New Zealand’s most sought after Rail Trail machine.
New Bosch motor and battery
The Moustache Xroad 3 Open is powered by Bosch’s Performance Line SPORT motor – assists up to 38 kph!! (only avail in NZ and USA) , the benchmark in efficient and versatile motors. The 625wh PowerTube battery is seamlessly integrated into the frame while remaining easy to take on and off. The integrated charge port on the bike makes recharging a breeze.
The Xroad comes equipped with practical and stylish accessories such as a luggage rack, dual wall aluminium mudguards and powerful lights front and rear.
The luggage rack with QL3 system means you can attach the Moustache by Ortlieb panniers, Moustache Clark Backpack or any other QL3 panniers in seconds, giving the Xroad even more versatility. Its wide platform and 27kg load capacity, it also makes it compatible with a large range of child seats. The MIK integration allows for quick fitting of a wide range of Basil and Moustache bags, such as the Greg & Manu Double pannier, and accessories, with more brands coming soon. Exclusive tubular Moustache mud-guards, ultra solid and reliable, are perfectly centred over the wheel to keep you and your bike dry and clean in all conditions.
Originally designed for New Zealand Rail Trails in mind, the Xroad ticks every box for comfort, reliability and style. Consumer Magazine NZ shares our high praise for the Xroad, click here to read their thoughts on the Xroad range.
