Lapierre Overvolt AM 700i

For the 2018 season the trending topic for E-MTB is integration, and Lapierre are spearheading progress with the Overvolt AM 700i. As one of the first E-MTBs, the AM 700i is kitted out with the latest generation of fully integrated Bosch PowerTube 500 battery, and therefore stands as a fine demonstration of the evolution of E-MTB frame design. This supreme integration not only looks aesthetically pleasing, but also creates space for a bottle cage in the frame’s main triangle. Fortunately, the Overvolt rides just as well as it looks and always managed to put a big smile on the test crew’s faces. The compact geometry supports the playful riding feel, carving out of every corner and popping off every lip. With its well-specced componentry, there’s very little to leave you wanting on this bike – and it won’t break the bank. The Overvolt is ready for a good time!
