With the Samedi Weekend 27 FS Dual EQ, Moustache offer a full-suspension eMTB for long tours that’s also perfectly suitable for commutes thanks to its full equipment.

For an overview of the test fleet head to the group test: 9 fully equipped ebikes for trekking and adventure in our test.

Moustache Weekend 27 FS Dual EQ | Bosch Performance Line CX/1125 Wh | 130/120 mm (f/r)
28.10 kg in size L | € 6,999 | Manufacturer’s website

The € 6,999 Moustache Samedi Weekend 27 FS Dual EQ is an adventure eMTB with a leisurely riding character. It combines intuitive handling and a good level of comfort, thus offering a harmonious overall concept that’s suitable both for long tours and commuting. The dual battery concept allows for a whopping 1,125 Wh capacity, allowing you to embark on exciting multi-day tours without a destination charging point.

The main battery is integrated into the down tube while the second one sits right on top of it. Both can be removed for external charging and locked in place to prevent theft. The powerful 85 Nm Bosch Performance Line CX motor packs a punch even with a fully-loaded bike, allowing you to negotiate even steeper ramps without batting an eyelid. A Bosch Nyon display with integrated navigation function prevents you from getting lost and allows you to check the weather forecast before setting off. If you still can’t avoid riding in the rain, the robust aluminium mudguards keep your feet dry while the Supernova E3 headlight ensures good visibility in diffuse light conditions or at night.

With many practical features, like the weather forecast and navigation functions, the big Bosch Nyon display helps you find your way even in unfamiliar regions.
The Magic Grip Control air shock, which was developed in-house by Moustache, controls 120 mm travel at the rear, ensuring a good level of riding comfort together with the voluminous 27,5″ x 2,6″ MAXXIS Rekon tires.
With a carrying capacity of up to 27 kg, the rear rack can be used for a child seat and is compatible with the MIK and QL3 standards.

The rear rack is compatible with the MIK and QL3 standards and can be used with a child seat, offering a carrying capacity of up to 27 kg, allowing you to leave the car at home and ride your little one to the kindergarten on two wheels. Beware of the wobbly kickstand, which can cause a fully-loaded bike to tip over. On uneven surfaces, the Moustache handles bumps like a pro, with its voluminous 2.6″ MAXXIS Rekon tires filtering out small vibrations. When the tires run out of steam, the suspension of the Moustache takes over. The French combine a 130 mm RockShox 35 Gold RL fork and their proprietary Magic Grip Control air shock, which controls 120 mm travel at the rear. The steering is predictable in long, open corners, but the handling of the Samedi Weekend is somewhat cumbersome when trying to navigate tight alleys, thus requiring an active riding style. If you’re expecting a lively and agile bike, you’ll be disappointed. Furthermore, at 28.1 kg in size L, the Samedi also requires more physical effort when threading your way through the cars in traffic or when loading the bike onto a car rack.

Tuning-Tipp: more robust kickstand

With its high-capacity dual battery system, the Moustache Samedi Weekend 27 FS Dual EQ is a self-sufficient powerhouse for long tours. As usual, the Bosch Nyon convinces with excellent connectivity. The suspension and tires ensure a high level of touring comfort while the spec delivers a solid performance both on tours and in everyday riding situations. While the Samedi might not be as agile and sporty as other ebikes, it’s an excellent option if you’re looking for a trusted eMTB companion for long distance adventures without destination charging.
