Lapierre (France) - Press Release: The XRM 75th celebrates the 75th anniversary of the brand. It is quite simply the lightest and fastest cross country marathon bike that we have ever conceived. The frame has been lightened and completely redesigned around a new suspension kinematic, where the rear triangle has been stripped of a bearing pivot point between the chain stays and seat stays. The 110mm of travel and the vertical flex of the seat stays improve both grip and efficiency. The frame has a natural carbon and polish finish which accentuates the lines of this unique bike.
The new XRM has been stripped of its bearing pivot between the chain stays and seat stays, which has allowed us to lighten the rear triangle. The vertical flex of the seat stays has allowed us to improve the comfort and the grip whilst rigidity is maintained by the chain stays.
Shimano XTR 12s groupset:
The Shimano XTR 12 speed groupset guarantees both rapid and precise shifting performance. The Shadow+ technology reduces the risk of impacts to the derailleur and offers better chain retention in extreme conditions. It is quite simply the benchmark competition groupset.
DT Swiss XRC 1200 Spline wheelset:
The XRC 1200 Spline is the ultimate cross-country wheel. The 30mm width rim is designed for the most intense efforts and the most aggressive riders. The ultra-light and factory machined hub combined with the rim result in a wheel that possesses the necessary rigidity for precise line choices, without compromise.
