Spicing up Enduro!
Earlier this year Lapierre released the new versions of the well-loved
Zesty : a completely reworked platform for 2016. Sharing the same OST+
suspension system, a new Spicy was also on the cards, and it will be
shown to the public for the first time at Eurobike.
A brand new beefed up Spicy, with progressive race geometry developed
by Nicolas Vouilloz, this latest version of the Spicy is an Enduro
race machine ready to tackle the toughest of descents.
Key features :
OST+ patented suspension system: a new pivot point position for an
improved suspension curve.
Longer travel: 165mm rear travel and 160mm front.
Adapted geometry: slack, long and low. A longer reach and shorter seat
tube. Shorter and wider cockpit, and slackened head angle.
• Longer Reach: S+18mm, M+16mm, L+20mm, XL +18mm
• Shorter ST: S&M -10mm, L&XL -20mm
• Cockpit: 45mm stem & 780mm bars
Oversized axles: increased stiffness, better reliability and easy maintenance.
Tyre clearance : improved by 10mm.
e:i Shock Auto compatible.
Hydration: more space has been added for a bottle cage and bottle.
MTB legend and Lapierre R&D team member, Nico Vouilloz was integral to
the Spicy’s development.
“We knew from the start that we wanted to increase the travel, but
keep it efficient when pedaling. To do this we kept the OST+
suspension system, but played around with different settings. We
adjusted the pivot point position for a better suspension curve. We
also adjusted the geometry and the longer reach and shorter seat tube
really improve the handling. This new version is a real Enduro
machine, perfected to win races!”
Available at your local Lapierre dealer from October.
Prices range from 3199€ to 6999€.
