Lapierre Audacio 200 FDJ TP 2016
Lapierre’s Audacio range is targeted at riders who aren’t looking for an expensive race machine but instead want a bike for leisure, on which they can progress their riding ability and fitness. While racing may not be an objective Lapierre still wanted the Audacio to be a fast and efficient endurance bike.
The frame is constructed from 6061 aluminum, while the fork is made from more premium carbon-fibre. This is the most effective way to manage low weight and affordability. The frame geometry reflects the ‘endurance’ credentials of the bike. A 72-deg head angle (size small) is fairly relaxed, meaning controlled rather than twitchy steering. Longer chainstay’s also improve the bikes stability. A tall stack height and relatively short reach put the rider in a slightly more upright riding position which increases comfort on the saddle, and alleviates strain on the lower back and neck.
As the name suggests this model features a team FDJ inspired paintjob, which gives the bike a look way above its price tag. The bike features a complete Shimano Claris 3x9 groupset, providing 29 easy shifting gears. The triple chainset is a good choice for newer riders as it provides easier gearing for climbing, as well as all the required range for every other gradient! Mach wheels are laced to Michelin dynamic sport tyres, which are an excellent choice due to their reliable grip and 25c wide casing. Lapiere’s own lightweight alloy parts form the cockpit and seatpost, while a Selle Italia X1 saddle is in place to keep the rider comfy and perched in the optimal position.
