Who is this bike suitable for?

The new 2018 Lapierre Overvolt AM 500i is the base-spec model offering 150mm of trail travel. Perfect for All Mountain, Trail & Enduro riding. Combined with the 2018 Overvolt DWS makes this a truly capable machine with most versatility over wheel sizes & rider preference on mixed terrain. Swap in and swap out 27.5 & 27.5+.

The revised Overvolt is notably more stylish and sophisticated, has room for a bottle cage and we could reel off a ton of other details that have been revamped. The result is a great E-MTB without any real flaws. If versatility and confidence over technical terrain are your thing, then this is just the thing. - eMTB Magazine

New Features

New for 2018 Lapierre have a All Mountain bike with a brand new frame and hidden 'In Tube' Bosch 500Wh battery. This all new geometry and spec to match, not only looks immense, it handles great too! 

Using their R&D to develop a new eBike specific frame set but also including all the technology built on the standard Lapierre Zesty and Spicy mountain bikes over the years. 

The Lapierre AM 500i has RockShox Deluxe R rear shock. It takes the damping system from the original Monarch shock and built it into a new sized chassis.

Offering open and pedal mode the rider can select either depending on the terrain, you can conserve energy in pedal mode whilst still allowing compression in any scenario.

Ready to hit the downhill sections? No problem, simply open it up to allow the 150mm shock absorb the back end. It's also air pressure adjustable spending on the riders weight and offers rebound damping via the Rapid Recovery system.

But wait, that's not all Lapierre have been working on:  For 2018, the Overvolt All Mountain Integrated range offers an exclusive DWS (Dual Wheel System). This clever system allows the user to interchange between 27.5 and 27.5+ wheels! 

By simply inverting the rear hanger & placing the new wheels in the electric bike, the rider can switch between wheel sizes with ease. If you are stuck between 27.5" and 27.5"+ for 2018 then this is the electric mountain bike for you!

To match the drive train Lapierre have added Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes with matchmaker lever / gear lever clamps to keep the cockpit looking smart and clutter free.

These brakes are mounted on larger 203mm rotors for optimal stopping power.

Design & Innovation Award 2018

The Lapierre Overvolt Bosch eBikes win the 2018 Design & Innovation awards. The judges said:

This supreme integration not only looks aesthetically pleasing, but also creates space for a bottle cage in the frame’s main triangle. Fortunately, the Overvolt rides just as well as it looks and always managed to put a big smile on the test crew’s faces. The compact geometry supports the playful riding feel, carving out of every corner and popping off every lip. With its well-specced componentry, there’s very little to leave you wanting on this bike – and it won’t break the bank. The Overvolt is ready for a good time!

Fully equipped with Lapierre's own internal stealth dropper seat post built in so you can raise and lower the seat at the flick of a switch on the handlebars, whilst on the move. Thus adjustable for both uphill and downhill riding with minimal effort.

Lapierre's new ACS (Anti Chain Suck) device is exclusive to 2018 Overvolt Bosch powered models. Designed to clean around the front drive cog, not allowing the drive sprocket to clog up or suck when plugged with mud. A great addition for UK specific riders!

Now on new 27+ wheels for 2018. What's PLUS all about?

This revelation hitting the cycling industry by storm offer a wider 2.8" broader tyre for ultimate traction, comfort & grip. Without compromising on rolling resistance.

The Shimano Deore drive train offers superb shifting at a fraction of the cost compared to it's bigger brothers XT and XTR ranges.

All the Shimano Shadow mech's offer a clutch system to reduce chain suck and keep an overall crisp feeling with less flex and bounce over the rougher bumps.

The new Shimano HG500 10 speed casette at the rear is specially developed to give a 11-42t setup. This is more commonly seen with 11 speed systems.
