Overvolt MTB

 

For electric people!

The new e-bike category is gaining territory rapidly. Development of special races, specific parts, quieter motors, improved autonomy… At Lapierre you can be sure of one thing : the Overvolt family is growing! Bosch, Yamaha and Shimano motors, new MTB frames, new urban and touring models… Change is afoot, don’t miss out!

 

Overvolt MTB - The hardest is how to choose!

Carrying on from the success of the first 4 models, the Overvolt MTB range is growing again for 2016 and will now consist of 7 models. You can choose between a full suspension OST+ frame or a hardtail; 120, 140, or 170mm of travel; Bosch or Yamaha motor… the hardest is how to choose!

Why OST+ suspension?

An essential part of our Zestys and Spicys for many years, our patented OST+ suspension system has many advantages: simplicity, efficiency, comfort. Its benefits are well known now. With the new more compact Bosch CX motor and the Yamaha motor, our engineers were able to move the pivot points and therefore obtain the desired suspension curve and greater comfort for the rider that OST+ brings to these bikes. A more sensitive suspension on small and medium shocks and more progressive on the bigger hits. Our full suspension Overvolts also have a protection for the motor and a chain guide that enable better pedaling over rough terrain and protects the frame.

Bosch

 

The German firm has now managed to establish itself as setting the standard for power assistance in the MTB world. Its versatility and flexibility of use provide top-notch performance – ideal for our Overvolts.

The Bosch Performance system, fitted on some of the MTB Overvolt (FS and HT), is the sportiest in the Bosch range. The compact motor design enables perfect incorporation into the frame and increases clearance height.
