Lapierre X-Control 327 2016
The Lapierre X-control is a long-standing model in the range, which has been continually updated to create the perfect bike. The X-control is perfect for a rider looking for a full suspension bike that’s more trail fun than the XR range, yet more xc-orientated than the Zesty range. The Lapierre X-control comes in aluminium and carbon variants, with different component packages to suit different budgets.
The bike comes with all the modern features you would expect, such as a tapered head-tube, screw-through rear axle, sag indicator and a sophisticated suspension design. The FPS+ linkage provides 100mm of suspension travel, while a suspension fork delivers 120mm of travel at the front.
The Lapierre X-control 327 is the highest spec alloy framed model in the range, offering excellent performance in a great value package. The 2x10 transmission is primarily composed of Shimano’s Deore groupset, although with an upgraded ‘XT’ rear mech for even better shifting. The DT Swiss rims are laced to Formula hubs to produce a quality set of wheels, which are then wrapped in Kenda tyres. Suspension is vitally important so Lapierre have opted for premium air/oil damped units. The Recon fork is highly adjustable, and stiff thanks to its 32mm legs and 15mm axle. The shock is Lapierre’s own, and like the fork it features adjustable air-presure and controls. Easton EA50 components make up the seatpost, stem, while Lapierre provide their own handlebars and saddle. The carefully considered components and thoroughly engineered frame make the Lapierre X-control 327 a brilliant bike for an aspiring xc and trail rider.
