Ever more technical race tracks. Pure XC to multi-day stage races. Charging up hill and down dale to the finish line… An XC steed needs to hold its own amongst the best. Acceleration and efficiency are essential, but so are handling, traction and rollover of obstacles. With decades of XC racing experience Lapierre have nailed this and can get you across the finish line, fast. XC RACE READY. The XR has had a total redesign for 2017. Ultra-light and efficient climbing, but strong and capable in descent, it’s everything the XC racer needs. The new XR is more dynamic for better control. With a shorter chainstay (-5mm compared to 2016) and longer front triangle (Reach is +20mm compared to 2016), specced with a shorter stem; the ride is more responsive and handling is improved.
