Lapierre Electric Bikes come to the UK for 2014 @ e-bikeshop.co.uk Exclusive
By Martin Brown |
For the very first time Lapierre Overvolt eBikes will be hitting the UK shores in an exclusive deal with e-bikeshop. Lapierre has been at the forefront of the cycling industry for some time now. They have been creating beautiful machines for over 60 years, succeeding in each genre of cycling.The French manufacturer prides itself in quality and design and the heart of their production is still where it all started – Dijon, France. The step into the eBike market was an obvious one for Lapierre who have always been known to be ahead of the game; they could use all their design and innovation skills already achieved in the biking world and add this to the latest technology from Bosch, this has to be a winner!After a considerable time in development the all new Lapierre Overvolt was born. With the design input from their very own Nico Vouilloz (10 times MTB world champion) the Overvolt is equipped with the latest MTB components. When you combine this with the new Bosch Performance crank drive motors a new breed of eMTB’s is here. Your everyday mountain biker can now rider harder, faster and for longer on this powered trail machine.e-bikeshop is the largest independent crank drive specialist in the UK. They specialise in Bosch powered eBikes in many variants of road, hybrid and trekking bikes & in particular the new eMTB’s. With the recent expansion into their new sales & distribution centre, e-bikeshop is now fully equipped with the space to offer a large selection of bikes and brand new specialist Bosch eBike workshop bays to ensure their electric bikes are supported for the long term, not just at the point of sale.Martin Brown, Director of e-bikeshop.co.uk said – “We are very proud to announce that Lapierre eBikes will be coming to the UK for the very first time, this follows from an exclusive deal which has been months in the planning. We are already the largest dealer in the UK for the brands we stock so it’s nice to be able to add Lapierre to our ever expanding portfolio.
I have actually been selling Lapierre non-electric bikes in my normal bike shops for years, so I really understand the brand and what it means. The quality is excellent and the design from Nico really shows when putting the bikes through their paces.
I think the difference with Lapierre and Nico in particular is that he is an avid MTB’er and he actually ‘gets’ the eBike craze. Rather than ignoring it he has embraced it and has set to work creating some outstanding new bikes.We only sell quality, European, crank drive eBikes. So the Lapierre Overvolt range really does tick all the boxes for us, these are very exciting times indeed.”The new Overvolts are available to order from e-bikeshop.co.uk today, with the first models due to start landing in July.Expect to see updates, reviews, videos & more very shortly so watch this space.Lapierre Overvolt Full Specification & Pictures - Lapierre Overvolt 27.5 FS 2014
