The Samson Electric is Day 6 Bicycles’ heavy hitter and makes getting out on a bike easy and fun. It offers you the choice of a 750-watt or super-powerful 1000-watt Bafang mid drive electric motor that will swiftly carry you miles on a single charge. The more you pedal, the longer the battery lasts! With the 750-watt motor, choose the 11.6Ah battery for economy or upgrade to the 14Ah battery for even greater range. The 1000-watt motor needs a lot of juice, so it comes with the 14Ah battery as standard equipment. The Samson offers the simplicity of one shifter with the gear range offered by an 8-speed cassette, so you can pedal up and down moderate hills with ease.
On top of the convenience of going electric, this bike comes standard with Day 6 comfort and ergonomics. The wide Contour Seat supports you much more comfortably than a regular bike seat and comes with a backrest to ensure proper spine alignment and low-back support. The aluminum U-First frame is easy to get on and off and makes it easy to put your feet on the ground while seated, making the bike safe and confidence-inspiring. And, even with all these comfort-features, you still get full range of motion for your legs, which means efficient pedaling and less fatigue, with or without electric assist. Throw in an aluminum EZ Reach handlebar, puncture-resistant Maxxis tires, and powerful disc brakes, and you’re ready for anything!
