The Moustache Xroad series changed the game for rail trail and light offroad riding in NZ. Now the FS or Full Suspension series thakes it to the next level. The Xroad FS retains all the benefits of the Xroad series like comfortable riding position, MTB ready components and a fully accessoried e-bike from mudguards to lights and adds a full suspension frame that will have you floating on air, literally!
Full suspension is a benefit both on road and off road. As well as offering more comfort, it helps with traction of the tyres onto the road especially while braking, increasing safety and confidence on loose surfaces.
Generally offering rear suspension onto a bike would come with many drawbacks to the casual rider – no rear rack or mudguards and a less comfortable, more agressive riding position. However, none of that had to be that way, it was just a result of the designer assumptions. The clever design team at Moustache listened to what people wanted and produced an e-bike with cake you can eat – the Xroad FS!
The X-road 5 FS comes in bright red and features the 625Wh battery and Bosch Gen 3 Performance Line CX motor.
NEW FRAME DESIGN
With its all-new frame boasting 100mm of travel front and rear, an integrated Bosch 625Wh PowerTube battery and the new Bosch Performance Line CX motor the 2020 Moustache Samedi 27 Xroad 5 FS is the ultimate in versatility and comfort. The Xroad FS comes equipped with practical and stylish accessories such as its new luggage rack and powerful lights front and rear. The new Xroad FS is as perfect for getting about day-to-day as it is for exploring further afield on the weekend.
NEW BOSCH MOTOR AND BATTERY
For so many reasons the Moustache Xroad is New Zealand’s most sought after Rail Trail machine. The new FS models for 2020 are in a class of its own with 100mm of bump eliminating suspension front and rear offering ultimate comfort and versatility. The Xroad FS models are powered by Bosch’s Performance Line CX motor, the benchmark in efficient and versatile motors. The brand new 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 luggage rack with QL3 system means you can attach the Moustache by Ortlieb panniers in seconds, giving the Xroad FS even more versatility. Its wide platform also makes it compatible with a large range of child seats. The MIK integration allows for quick fitting of a wide range of Basil bags 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.
Designed specifically with New Zealand conditions in mind the Xroad FS ticks every box for comfort, reliability and style.
