Lapierre Pro Race 327 2016
The Lapierre Prorace is a XC thoroughbred, from its geometry to its construction; everything is designed for speed and efficiency. A big selling point of the Prorace is the option of choosing between 27.5” and 29” wheels. Taller riders are likely to feel more comfortable on a 29’er, while smaller riders better suit a 27.5” wheel. Riding styles can also suit different wheel sizes, another benefit of having wheel size options on the ProRace.
The geometry of the ProRace inspires confidence, thanks to its 69-70deg head angle. The long toptube stretches the rider out to prevent a cramped cockpit.
The Lapierre Prorace 329 uses an aluminum frame. While not quite as light as carbon the identical geometry and clever construction means this is still a fast xc bike. The componentry on the 329 is chosen to balance performance and value. This concept is evident with the Shimano Deore and XT groupset. While not the most glamorous Deore is incredibly effective, and the XT rear-mech enhances shifting at the cassette. Given this bikes XC DNA Schwalbe’s Rapid Rob tyres are ideal due to their minimal tread and fast rolling speed. Rockshox provide their Recon Gold fork to smooth out the trail. The air damping and stiff chassis help the rider maintain high levels of composure and confidence. Other features of the Lapierre Prorace 529 include Shimano Deore hydraulic brakes, Easton EA50 parts, and a relatively wide 720mm handlebar.
