New for 2016 a whole new level of Lapierre Overvolt is unleashed! The new Yamaha powered Lapierre FS 400 bike with 140mm of travel and entry level components, this eBike is a good all rounder for trail riding. A great eMTB for those just starting out.
After doing a lot of research into electric bikes and visiting a number of dealers, my wife and I were impressed with the knowledge and advice given at e-bikeshop, we did experience a technical problem with one of the bikes, but with e-bikeshop's service, they went the extra mile to ensure that the problem was resolved quickly leaving us as very happy customers
Lapierre have been working hard to create the ultimate Yamaha trail eBike for 2016 - Say hello to the new Overvolt!
Utilizing their already proven OST+ geometry and design skills from the Lapierre Zesty & Spicy range the new Overvolt FS 400 takes it to a whole new level for 2016.
Lapierre's very own Nico Vouilloz (10 times MTB World Champion) has tweaked the design of this eMTB to keep it performing above the rest when it comes to off road performance.
New for 2016 the FS 400 hosts a Rockshox Monarch R rear shock. This new design offers silky smooth travel and due to it's lightweight design handles the bumps better than ever with the rapid recovery technology!
This air adjustable shock can be set to the rider's weight to give a plush feeling but suck up anything it needs to.
It also offers a new quick and easy rebound control adjustment based on the rider's requirements.
The new Rockshox Sektor Silver forks offer similar technologies to their bigger word cup level forks, but with a more budget friendly mix of materials. The Sektor's also offer flexibility with the 'TurnKey' lockout system and are full air adjustability.
On the 2016 Lapierre Overvolt FS 500 the wheels are 27.5" (650B), so optimize the benefits of both 26" & 29" and combine them into one fast rolling, easy to manoeuvre wheel size.
Lapierre have selected a new set of wheels for 2016 - Mach 1's. With slightly different width front and rear.
These are built on double wall rims, sealed through axle hubs and built with toughness in mind to handle even harsher all mountain conditions.
To maintain traction on these lovely wheels are the new Schwalbe Hans Dampf tyres, German made for superior grip on all mountain use across mixed terrain with maximum protection.
Although they come as standard with tubes, these tyres are fully tubeless compatible from stock.
We see Shimano hydraulic disc brakes on the Lapierre FS 500. These brakes offer minimal maintenance and ensure you can stop as fast as you accelerate. A fully sealed system on larger rotors for maximum stopping power and featuring the new servo system built in the lever for more control.
The Yamaha system allows a dual ring at the front, so the FS 500 for 2016 boasts a 2x10 Shimano gear setup.
The new Lapierre Overvolt FS 400 2016 eBike is powered by the latest Yamaha electric bike system. Lapierre has partnered with Yamaha to bring a brand new line of eMTB's, this powerful 250w motor offers up to 280% assistance and peaks at 80Nm of torque.
The power curve comes in early and is responsive as soon as you touch the pedals. The new assistance is set in 4 levels for 2016 - 'Eco+', 'Eco', 'Standard' & 'High'. This allows the user to fine tune the amount of assistance required during the ride offering complete flexibility and control.
The 2016 Yamaha system uses a 400Wh battery, now with an assisted range of up to 90 miles due to the new Eco+ assistance mode. The Overvolt FS 400 2016 eBike is offered with the largest 400Wh Yamaha battery to give a full days ride time.
The Yamaha eBike battery can be quickly recharged in a matter of hours and the new LCD display shows not just how much capacity the battery holds but also the predicted range in assisted miles. The charger now boasts an even smaller shell for 2016.
