Lapierre Pulsium 700 Compact 2016
When initially released the Lapierre Pulsium redefined the level of comfort a rider can expect from a race bike. The Pulsium is so effective it’s one of the bikes that carried Thibault Pinot to a 3rd place GC in the 2015 TDF!
The Pulsium features many technologies to enhance comfort, but primarily it’s the work of S.A.T (shock absorption technology). The elastomer ring between the toptube and seatstays absorbs road vibrations, reducing the impact on the rider, thus reducing discomfort and fatigue. Other technologies include pliant seatstays, a skinny 27.2mm seatpost, and a raked fork.
Despite the strong orientation around comfort the Pulsium is still a true race bike! The full carbon frameset, has an optimized carbon lay-up for maximized stiffness around the BB and chainstays. Other features include full internal cable routing, Di2 compatability, and an aero seat-tube.
The Lapierre Pulsium 700 CP is a real race ready machine, with no corners cut! The Shimano Ultegra Di2 6870 groupset is highly popular amongst the best racers thanks to its super precise and consistent shifting. Given the bikes ‘endurance’ focus the gears come in a suitable wide range 11-32t cassette and compact crankset. Mavic Ksyrium elite wheels are a step above their rivals, and are a seriously light set of alloy wheels. The 25c Mavic tyres provide extra grip and comfort over commonly seen 23c items.
There’s no weak link with the Pulsium 700 cp, all the finishing kit is top notch, with a carbon seatpost, Zipp Service cockpit and a Fizik Aliante saddle.
