Lapierre Overvolt Urban
Lapierre’s Overvolt Urban is quite simply one of the smallest full size electric bike on the market. Perfect for those who are smaller in stature.
It’s ideal for those who are not so tall, and find 700c wheel sizes even on medium and small frames much too large and uncomfortable. Thankfully, the Overvolt Urban Bosch is tailor-made for this type of rider, and is the perfect solution. It has everything a touring ebike can offer, including a great riding position, comfort and quality equipment. A simple low step frame makes getting on and off the bike a breeze, and generates huge rider confidence. This Overvolt Urban Bosch is a safe, and easy to manoeuvre electric bike that can be used over many different types of terrain.
Driven by the new 2018 Bosch Active Plus motor, powered by a either a 300Wh or 400Wh battery ensures super long range and smooth assisted cycling. It’s really quiet and smooth, and a step further on than its predecessor. A nice pair of Suntour forks ensure a smooth and even ride.
This modest sized frame is set on Schwalbe Road Cruiser K-Guard tyres that soak up every bump and hollow to ensure a hugely comfortable experience. In addition, they’ll keep punctures to a minimum thanks to their protective lining. A very comfy Selle Royal Wave Royal gel saddle further adds to the luxury of this fine ebike. With 9-speed Shimano gearing, every hill can be tackled with ease. The Overvolt Urban Bosch has Shimano hydraulic disc brakes for effective stopping power too.
Bosch’s Intuvia display situated centrally on the bars provides clear information on battery level and assist mode. With four power levels, the Bosch system is a truly flexible feat of engineering and extremely versatile. Equipped with front/rear lights, mudguards and carrier the Urban is both a utility ebike as well as one for purely leisure.
Such a rare bike also comes at a highly affordable price. The Overvolt Urban from Lapierre is truly a star performer.
