Built to be the most versatile bike to date. The new 2018 Lapierre Overvolt 527i is the base spec model in the integrated Shimano eMTB range. Offering superb components and 160mm of travel. Ideal for your mountain biker that wants one electric bike that does it all. Be it, gravity, enduro, all mountain or free ride.
A veritable mountain goat: the Overvolt AMi Shimano has a winning geometry setup and great roll-over characteristics - eMTB Magazine
The new 2018 Lapierre Overvolt integrated Shimano eBikes offer superb looks and riding characteristics, while keeping the battery stealthily tucked away in the frame and an even centre of gravity.
The 'Snake Tech' battery is bendy and can easily be charged both on the bike or removed from the frame completely. Whilst a fighter jet style push button on top of the top tube turns the bike on and off.
Lapierre have equipped the Overvolt AM 527i with Suntour's new AION fork, developed at an affordable price level with all the features of higher end forks.
Tested and developed by Suntour to offer an eBike optimised ride with a Hydraulic lockout, 140mm of travel and of course allowing for the 27.5+ boost axle.
At the rear we have the 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 120mm 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.
The Overvolt 527i is fitted up with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes on larger 203mm rotors, now with split clamps and reach adjust, a great every day brake.
A shorter stem and wider bar are fitted for the new Overvolt range in 2018 giving maximum stability and leverage on the steering.
Each of the 2018 Overvolt AM Shimano integrated models can be special ordered in the 29" wheel format too if required.
Please contact us for this as we will only be stocking the 27.5" versions, the 29" specific versions will come with 140mm travel.
The 2018 Overvolt AM models are equipped with Lapierre's own internal stealth dropper seat post. You can raise & 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.
All the Overvolt Shimano AM models are built 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 Maxxis tyres grip the trail with a High Roller on the front and a Rekon specific rear tyre. These are fully tubeless compatible out of the box.
The Overvolt AM 527i gearing is kitted up with Shimano's new Deore drive train. The new Deore mech is lighter than before and accepts a larger gear range.
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 10 speed casette at the rear is specially developed to give a 11-42t setup. This is more commonly seen with 11 speed systems.
Although the Overvolt 527i is the entry spec model in the new Shimano integrated range, it offers many of the same characteristics as the higher spec Overvolt electric bikes but at a price that's a little easier on the pocket. We welcome the Overvolt for 2018!
Lapierre have developed the new range of Overvolt eBikes to offer the Shimano E8000 eMTB system. Lapierre use Shimano's renowned motor drive system, but have developed their own battery technology called 'Snake Power Technology'. This is Lapierre's own exclusive design.
The new Shimano Steps system has been developed specifically around eMTBing and offers a long range 500Wh battery which Lapierre have fully integrated into the Overvolt 527i down tube offering stealth fitment and a lower centre of gravity. The battery is actually 'bendy' so it only needs a small port to get the battery in and out. It's a Lapierre specific integration and also increases frame rigidity.
Alongside a newly developed 2018 MTB drive unit capable of assisting up to 70Nm of torque to the rider and operating up to high cadence RPM ranges. The assistance outputs are adjustable as the rider can set and change the assistance mode whilst riding on the fly with 3 options – Eco, Trail & Boost visible on the LCD display panel.
