Lapierre has recently unveiled the new XR cross country/marathon bike. Utilizing a Boost hub standard and an OST+ link that is driven by an E:i electronically activated shock, the XR is all about efficiency, response and control.

Specifications/Geometry

Gone are the flexible carbon fiber chainstays of last year’s version, with Lapierre firmly moving towards the Horst link setup based on their OST+ system. The head angle has been opened a little to provide slightly smoother descending characteristics.
