Bosch Drive Unit
The Samedi 27 Off 2 features the very latest Bosch Performance Line motor. This motor is a significant step forward from the previous version and offers the following improvements:
- Weight – now lighter at 3.2 kg
- More powerful – the torque has increased to 65 Newton Metres.
- No resistance – the front chain ring is now a normal size, meaning no gearing in the motor and so no friction.
- Quieter – now one of the quietest motors in it’s class.
The battery is now the 500 watt Powertube. This is integrated into the downtime but still removable with a key, so that it can be charged on or off the bike. The battery will give a range of about 40-50 miles – this is in average conditions using different levels of assistance. Settings available are Eco, Tour, Sport (or eMTB) and Turbo. The assistance level varies from 55% in Eco to 300% in Turbo. These levels of assistance are added to the rider’s input and the motor comes in as soon as power is applied to the pedals. The charger supplied with the bike is the 4 amp version that will fully charge the battery in 4.5 hours.
The bike is a well equipped mountain bikes with Shimano parts. It has Suntour front suspension with 100 mm of travel. The gears are a good standard, being Shimano 11 speed Deore. Brakes are Shimano hydraulic disc, front and rear with a large 180mm rotor on the front. The tyres 2.35 inch Maxxis Forekaster – great for trails, tracks and mixed off-road. The bike is also equipped with a Moustache suspension seatpost and Moustache comfort saddle.
This is one of our favourite bikes because it’s so no-nonsense. It just gets on with the job, but does it in style. Moustache have innovated again and produced a fabulous looking bike that will be a joy to ride off-road and on-road.
