The 2012 Saxonette X Road. Perfectly suited to touring, commuting and leisure riding. The X Road can do it all, and do it well. A versatile multipurpose power assisted bike designed and built to do the miles. Compact frame, multi position adjustable handlebar stem and quick release seat post allow the optimum riding position to be achieved.

Powerful hydraulic disc brakes front and rear give plenty of stopping power come rain or shine, even when fully loaded with camping kit! A triple front chainset and wide range rear cassette combine to give immense climbing ability when used with assistance, and shifting duties are carried out by the superb Shimano Deore front and rear derailleurs for positive gear changes every time.

Power assistance is via the dependable rear hub integrated 250 watt 36 volt 8fun motor which has no resistance when pedalling unassisted. Fed by the ever reliable seat tube mounted Lithium Ion 9Ah battery, a range of up to 50 miles is achievable subject to weight loading, the conditions and terrain.

A full charge takes around 5 hours with the supplied intelligent charger.

The centre bar mounted LCD display is easy to read in the day or at night with its soft blue illumination. Battery level, assistance mode, total mileage, trip distance, speed and motor output are displayed. You can even recall your average and maximum speeds from your ride. The 5 available assistance levels and other functions are controlled by a unit close to the handlebar grip, and is easily operated by thumb or finger. A handy walk mode and programmable assistance level complete the feature count.

Smooth rolling, heavy duty 700c tyres on lightweight alloy rims get up to speed quickly and give confidence with their cornering ability and grip.

Dynamo LED lighting comes as standard, with the rear light providing a stay on function when stationary for additional safety.

The heavy duty rear carrier can take up to 25 kg. Panniers can be easily fitted if required.

Load it up and hit the road. Your next adventure awaits…
