Less than a year ago Lapierre revealed their first Shimano eMTB, now they’ve added an additional model with 27.5+ wheels and more travel. We travelled to Corsica to find out what the new Lapierre Overvolt AMi 727 is capable of.
The new Lapierre Overvolt Shimano AMi 29er was launched in August 2017. Featuring an all-new frame design with an integrated battery and Shimano motor, we were impressed! Rather than rest on their laurels, Lapierre announced the arrival of an additional version for 2018: featuring 27.5+ wheels, longer travel, and tweaks to the geometry, the Overvolt AMi 727 is aimed at riders wanting a fun, hard-hitting allrounder.The Lapierre Overvolt AM 727i Shimano in detail
The first thing you notice about the AMi is it’s super clean aesthetics, with the battery totally encased inside the downtube. This design has allowed Lapierre to make a lighter and stiffer frame which also protects the battery from the elements. The stock Shimano battery wasn’t compatible with their design, so Lapierre’s solution is the, ’Snake Power Technology’ 504 Wh integral battery, which has flexible, ‘vertebrae’, enabling it to bend at an angle and slot easily into the small entry port.
