Lapierre Pro Race 629 2016
The Lapierre Prorace is a XC thoroughbred, from its geometry to its carbon 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 wheelsize options on the ProRace.
As you would expect of a modern race bike the frame features a tapered headtube, screw-through rear axle, internal cable routing, and even Shimano Di2 compatibility!
Sitting one peg below the 729 the 629 is still a very capable racer! A full 2x11 Shimano XT M8000 transmission provides slick shifts across a wide range of gears. Should you fancy the 11-40t cassette provides large enough range to justify a 1x11 conversion. A Rockshox Reba RL fork provides plush bump absorption thanks to its motion control air damper. Adjustable compression, rebound and air pressure make this fork easily tunable to a riders requirements. DT Swiss wheels and Schwalbe tyres make for a racey wheelset, that’s easy to get up to speed. To slow down Shimano’s XT brakes are in place. A Fizik Tundra saddle and Easton cockpit are other highlights on this well equipped race ready bike.
