Lapierre Audacio 300 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.
The Lapierre Audacio 300 cp/tp features a smartly specced list of components. Shimano’s new Tiagra groupset is significantly improved over the previous generation, and is much more aesthetically pleasing thanks to the new 4-arm crank design as seen on the most premium groupsets. Shimano also supply their R501 wheels. These great value wheels have a respectable weight but fundamentally are strong and durable, which is ideal for the harsh British roads. 25c wide Michelin tyres add a little comfort compared to 23c tyres too. Lapierre finishing kit and a Selle Italia saddle round things off nicely.
