The Overvolt takes Lapierre to new heights with electric motor

KENT, Wash. (Apr. 8, 2014)—Carrying momentum built during its inaugural season in North American, Lapierre will offer a glimpse into its 2015 season mountain bike offerings this week. At the Sea Otter Classicin Laguna Seca, CA (Apr. 10-13, booth #505), Lapierre will reveal the Overvolt line of electric mountain bikes.

Designed to expand the boundaries of off-road riding, the Overvolt makes mountain biking accessible to a broader range of people, allowing riders to push their limits and ride longer, faster and climb higher than ever before.

The Overvolt is a true spec mountain bike, and offers the same quality and rideability brought to you with Lapierre’s innovative and much sought-after Spicy and Zesty models, and was designed and tested extensively with 10x World Champion Nicolas Vouilloz.

Equipped with the elite Bosch Performance motor, the Overvolt provides extreme reliability, providing varying levels of power depending on gear selection and forces applied by the rider. The Overvolt features an Intuvia computer display, allowing the rider to choose from 4 power assist modes. Combined with 3 sensors measuring force, pedal cadence and speed at 1000 times per second, the Overvolt offers the incredibly smooth ride of a standard MTB bike yet with a powerful kick.

The Overvolt’s PowerPack 400Wh battery provides 2-3 three hours of autonomy and a 20-60 mile range. The lightweight battery is extremely efficient for energy output and extremely durable. Utilizing lithium-ion, the battery can be charged at any time –even after partial use – and even while still mounted on the bike.

Intuvia Display Highlights:

· Battery Indicator

· Four Riding Modes: Power, Sport, Tour, Eco

· Motor power used

· Walking/start assistance function

· Active display:
