Lapierre Urban Shaper 200 Womens City 2016
The Lapierre Shaper is the perfect option for riders looking to ride for fun and fitness. The frame has the classic ‘road bike’ appearance, but Lapierre have supplied less traditional flat handlebars. This puts the rider in a more upright position that improves comfort and steering control. All shaper’s feature 700x28c tyres, with the wider tyre providing further improvements in comfort as well as increased grip. While comfort is hugely important the Shaper doesn’t sacrifice speed. With road bike gearing and wheels it’s built to ride fast and efficiently, helping you to eat up the miles in comfort.
Aside from the paint the Women’s Shaper features altered geometry to better suit the rider, as well as some altered components such as the change to a women’s specific saddle. Importantly the women’s bike comes in smaller sizes to accommodate for petit riders.
The Lapierre Shaper 200 W is the mid-range alloy model. The bike features all the elements that make the bike such a pleasure to ride, these are road bike specific gears and wheels, and comfort focused components such as the wide tyres and comfy saddle.
Shimano’s Sora groupset provides 27 gears in a 3x9 format, enough for any steep climb or descent! Mach rims and Shimano hubs make for a sturdy yet efficient wheelset, and with 28c wide Michelin tyres they feel much smoother and forgiving than many other set-ups. The saddle is a women’s Selle Italia gel Royal unit, the perfect option for this bike. The thick padding and gel insert dissipate weight and vibrations effectively; leaving the rider with great levels of comfort that allows them to ride the Lapierre Shaper 200 TP all day long!
