Lapierre Xelius SL 500 CP 2016
The Lapierre Xelius Sl 500 CP is the ultimate climbing bike crate by Lapierre, however following the introduction to the Aircode and the Pulsium, it was time for a revamp on the Xelius frame. The engineers at Lapierre worked closely with the FDJ team to help improve the overall stiffness and reduce the weight. This was done by changing the way they carbon was laid up in a whole new design.
Add to that a new advance in Power box technology which provides better pedaling efficiency and the all new Trap Door Technology (TDT) for the Shimano Di2 battery and you have a whole new Advancement in terms of technology
The Lapierre Xelius SL 500 CP uses Shimano’s mid range group set ‘105’, which compares easily against the other top end group sets by Shimano. The 11-speed gearing makes shifting slicker and smoother, whilst the overall looks and quality of the group set is easily compared to the higher end Ultegra group set by Shimano.
The ultra smooth and lightweight, yet durable Mavic Aksium wheel set is a great addition to the bike and the Zipp cockpit add stiffness and flare to the overall look of the bike.
