Lapierre Overvolt Explorer 800
The Overvolt Explorer 800 from Lapierre is a beautifully crafted ‘all-in-one’ electric bike, designed for leisurely rides out on those lazy days, or as a purposeful commuter, suitable for both ladies and gentlemen alike.
Combining comfort, ease of use, speed and efficiency on all surfaces, the Explorer 800 is the ideal companion. Designed for the rigours of everyday life, this e-bike is a fine example of French craftsmanship. The Supreme 6 aluminum frame is rigid and lightweight. The ride is ultra comfy yet strong and decisive. With cool looks and huge charisma, this bike mans business. Thanks to a strong 60Nm Bosch Performance motor and 500Wh battery, there’s no compromise on performance. Strong pulling power means every hill is accessible. Range isn’t a problem thanks to Bosch’s largest power pack. Riding the Explorer 800 is a joy, enhanced by thoughtful geometry and comfortable riding position. This multi-purpose, gritty performer is ideal for the urban jungle and equally at home for touring out in the wilds. Canal tow-paths, forest trails and even harder surfaces present no challenge for this chameleon.
Appointed with a host of quality components, the Explorer 800 boasts great looks, performance and sleek lines.
A fine Shimano Deore 10-speed derailleur in combination with a wide range 11-42T cassette ensures excellent hill-climbing ability. Gear changing is spot on and decisive thanks to a pair of Shimano M315 hydraulic brakes. Pinning on 180mm/160mm rotors produces a very effective braking system that’s both progressive and highly effective. Bosch’s Intuvia display sited centrally on the bars provides clear and easy to read information at all times. The walk assist function is always welcome, and is a key feature on all Bosch e-bikes. Continental Double Fighter III tyres (27.5 x 2.00) are just the job and provide a good balance between grip and rolling-resistance. They behave flawlessly, and suit a multitude of terrain. The front forks are an accomplished set of Suntour NEX E-25’s and complement the bike perfectly. They provide the right amount of give when required, and swallow up bumps and hollows easily.
As expected, the Explorer 800 comes fully equipped for every eventuality. A set of strong lights front and rear ensure safety at all times. Full length mudguards keep all the muck out of harms way. A strong rear luggage rack facilitates the addition of quality panniers such as Ortlieb for eager commuters or shoppers.
The Overvolt Explorer 800 is the perfect choice for leisure and commuting, and is available in four frame sizes.
