2015 Lapierre 27.5 Downhill Bike - Preview

Unveiled by Lapierre at the Fort William UCI World Cup is the latest downhill bike with a 27.5” wheels. The new 2015 Lapierre 27.5 Downhill bike brings quite a few changes from the previous model, as it’s a new frame, new wheels and a new suspension system.

The new rear-suspension system replaces the rather complex Pendbox design with a single-pivot design dubbed Supra Link Technology. Lapierre say they were inspired by motocross designs to deliver their 210mm travel solution.

When the bike is released there will be two versions, a replica of the Team Lapierre Gravity Republic race versions, known as the Team and a lesser specced version the 727.

For the Fort William event only team rider Emmeline Ragot was riding this new bike... and she rode it to victory, securing first place.
