Lapierre Overvolt AM 727i - First Ride

Apr 23, 2018
by Paul Aston  



Based in Dijon, France, Lapierre Bicycles, is one of the oldest brands in the business, founded in 1946. They were also one of the early adopters of eMTB's back in 2014. This all-new Overvolt AM is targeted at all-mountain riding with 160mm of travel and 27.5+ rims and rubber.

This new platform is the first Lapierre propelled by a Shimano Steps motor and fuelled by a 'SnakePower' 500wh integrated battery. Starting at €4599 and reaching up to €6799 split across five spec levels, we headed to Corsica in exceptionally bad weather to try the AM727i.

Woohoo, room for a bottle cage.

Compared to Lapierre's flagship Overvolt Carbon, the AM727i is almost bland. The carbon bike featured twin downtubes and a standard battery located under the seat tube and almost directly on top of the motor. The concept was to get the weight as low and centralized as possible for stability and light handling. The AM has a more conventional look and a new suspension design that tries to move the weight of the linkage and shock as low as possible, and instead integrates the battery into the downtube.

Lapierre wanted to keep the weight of the bike a low down as possible, hence the new linkage design compared to previous Lapierre offerings.

Motor and Battery

The motor is a standard Shimano STEPS E8000 unit, with stiff, 170mm Hollowtech cranks. The SnakePower battery, on the other hand, is far from standard; the huge articulated unit slides into the downtube from a sealed and lockable port near the head tube. After a couple of tries, it becomes simple and fast to remove it for charging or changing. Of course, the battery can still be charged in the bike with a charging port on the downtube.


Build Kits

Aluminum is the only option for the eMTB chassis, with four sizes S-XL. There are five models to choose from with prices ranging from €4599 - €6799. There are also all of the same options in a 29" wheeled bike, with 140mm travel.

Geometry


The AM727i's geometry is aimed at all-mountain riding and shaped around 27.5+ wheels. Interestingly, you can't fit 29" wheels as it is a true 27" bike with added clearance to squeeze in a 2.8" tire (most brands offer the option of 29" or 27.5+).

The prime numbers are a 65.5º head angle, 75.5º seat angle, and 445mm chainstays. Reach numbers start at 418mm on the S, up to 482 on the XL.

Lapierre Overvolt AM727 geometry





After jumping off the ferry on to sunny Corsica, we were greeting by 10cm of snow on the beach and the worst (or best) snowfall on the island for decades, which took a sharp toll on our riding time. But after a couple of days, things started to dry out and we could get going.

The AM727i was simple to set up with Fox's latest suspension being a breeze to get dialed in. The bike was quiet from the outset with no battery rattle, and the rubber guards to keep chainslap at bay.

Shimano's motor with the latest firmware updates has great torque sensitive power in 'Trail' mode and makes feeding in the power easier and more intuitive on techy and loose trails. That said, I struggled more on this eMTB when tackling steep climbs than the recently tested Thok and Canyon.

As we dropped into some rocky descents, we were plagued with punctures - some tougher tires would be the first upgrade over the spec'd EXO casing High Roller and Rekon. C'mon Maxxis, just make some Double Down 2.8" tires already.

Lapierre Overvolt AM


Like all eMTB's, the stability from the extra weight keeps the bike planted, but there was enough support from suspension to keep the bike up in its travel and let your push as the speeds increase. Then to slow down, the bike is spec'd as all eMTB's should be with 200mm rotors and the more powerful choice of the Guide RE brakes that use an old-style Code caliper.

The AM727i traveled through and over most terrain well. The suspension needed some more support at the end of the stroke in big compressions and hits, but this could be solved with some suspension tweaking and some more time. Overall the AM727i is a package that is ready to take on nearly anything that is put in its way.

 @sewer-rat you live in dorchester, you're hardly riding cross mountain epics, or even hills so yes an e-bike wont make sense to you. i've ridden e-bikes in nelson, NZ which is where I used to live, where you're actually riding mountains, you can do 3-5 runs of some epic trails, maybe its an 800m climb so you realistically you're going to ride that trail once, or twice on a good day with your regular trail bike. how abut doing it 4 times or so on an e-bike?
so many people miss the point, its not a case of cheating, think of it as being able to ride more, go further, its not cheating cause trust me, you can get a fricking good work out on one. it also motivates some of the older generation to ride who otherwise wouldn't have the strength or motivation to do so. e-bikes are rad.

 After losing my fitness due to 6 months off the bike due to a twice dislocated (within a a few months) shoulder and a concussion, I bought my first eMTB about 3 weeks ago - the motivation was to just get back out there and ride, no matter how.

I have had a *blast*. You definitely do still get a good work out as you ride further and ride more - and it's pedal 'assist' not replacement. I rode my favorite single track last weekend for the first time in 8 months... even with the 650m climb to get to the trailhead, I was fresh for the trail and had an amazing ride - probably better than when I rode up it 'manually', as I wasn't tired by the climb and could concentrate on lines, position etc. So when I got to the bottom, I rode up and did it again.

You still have to pedal, it's not MX or a motorbike, you still have to push and control a bike... While I still have my FS 29er, the eBike has got me out doing over 300km the last 10 days, even with my injury recovery and rehab still going on.

Don't knock it until you try it.

 @sewer-rat: this President of US, I have the red button in my hand ok? Another one next to my toilet, Do you understand that? terrific! Now, I want you to know that you are completely right, E-bikes are terrible, not real mountain bikes, in fact they aren't even motorcycles, they are E-bikes. Many come here and they are criminals, trail rapists. Someone just cut my favorite switchback on my ranch and I got my best people from CIA on it to tell me that it was an E-bike. Like the one that started fire in California, by pedal strike. Yes it was a pedal strike, from electric pedal. These are not good people, ok? E-bikes take the jobs from America to Jina, and this is a French bike, it makes French lines, I am sure it was a French bike responsible for butchering my beatiful trail on my tremendous ranch. Electric motors are also made in places like Mexico or Yemen, not West Virginia or North Carolina, no. So I say, listen Pinkbike, you are nice Canadian people but shut that E-bike part down, you live close to Bellingham m*therf*kers! I expect your Prime minister to come to the White House and apologize. 100 times. I said it, 100 times. And Canadia will pay for planting something on that Strava line on my ranch. Thank you

 @mattwragg: hm, not sure if you miserunderstood or misinterpreted my post. When you consider what industrialisation did to the working class than and still now (for example in Bangladesh), they were right with their fear of more pressure and harder life due to industrialisation. It was the starting point of turbo capitalism and many people still suffer because of it. That was my point. Nevertheless i‘m part of it, typing this in my iPhone made by Foxcon workers under bad circumstances. But that doesn‘t mean that the Luddites weren‘t right with what they were afreaid of and wanted to avoid with their attacks against the machines. Can you follow me?

I particularly like some of the radical post-robotisation ideas being thrown around, like a universal living wage for all. I also think that your concept of the luddites is somewhat romaticised - for the greater part, they just wanted to keep their jobs, when their time was up (much like the coal industry in the US today, for example). For what it's worth, I grew up near Nottingham in the UK, my family is from Arnold and the surrounding area, and my father worked in the textile industry, so I was always pretty close to this history (plus the closures of the pits and the factories) - and he is now watching the industry he worked in for 40 years die.

 It’s an odd thing this notion that we should have to ‘earn our turns’...
I spent half my life snowboarding, I did as little hiking as possible, took the chair straight to the park every day.
If I lived next to a bike park I’d do as little peddling as possible and I’m sure there are many lucky bastards who do this.
There are segments of cycling based heavily around peddling just as there are skiing and even splitboarding based around hiking or just plain going uphill. But I’m not into cycling to pedal, I’m in to go down hills and off jumps, once again as I’m sure are many others. If there’s a way to help me do more of that in areas that aren’t lift accessed...I’m down. No question.
I ride in areas that are not impossible to ride to the top but if I could double the amount of runs? No brainer.
I’m not feeling negative toward these bikes at all, I am sceptical whether we’ll get to a point where they’re as good as bikes without motors on the descents but I’m excited to see where it goes.
Second to building a chairlift on every hill (which is what I’d do if I could) they seem a good idea.
I wanna go to FJMTB and do 50 runs a day.

 Yeah, earn your turn def have an air of arrogance to it. Like it's not really pure unless..I`ve done tons of hiking with my snowboard. Don't ride park. Lots of hike a bike/ pushing to find new terrain or hidden trails. I ride with guys all the time that's like " we should have a lift here duh" when we pedal back to the top. Itś a matter of perspective. On one end you have "the more shuttling is more fun. On the other the ûber sufferfest purist. Shuttle guys do (in my opinion) tend to forget about being in the now or whatever.. I find that you tend to be more alert and present when you do get to go down after a longer ride to start of the section or descent

 I‘m with you. Was sceptical, if e-mtb can be called same sport as mtb. So i recently did a comparison test for a german e-mag: riding 3 hours with a normal enduro bike on a 10km loop with 300m elevation. Did it with 210 Watts intermediate and 145 bpm. Did the same loop next day with an e-bike. Same amount of Watt and bpm. Result: 1450hm and 4 loops day 1 and 2200hm and 6 loops day two. So exactly the same „sport“ for my body uphill, but even more sport dh - and that equals more fun for me. Win-win, don‘t you think?

but there is no need to do that, ebikes like this are also MT-Bikes, people riding them are literally the same people that also ride "normal" bikes. i have no idea why people are trying to antagonize other group which in reality doesn't even exist. cant we all just enjoy MTBs and leave this retarded "hurr durr ebikes are literally hitler" mentality behind?
  • - 2
 @JWP: I think they are loyal to mountain biking. Ebikes (the limited assist pedelecs like the LP in the article) are mountain bikes made by the same companies and ridden by the same people on the same places (in Europe at least) as regular bikes.
I ride a Canyon Strive and a Commencal Meta Power. I enjoy riding both but during the week when I have limited time I ride the Meta Power because I can put a good amount of runs in a one and a half hour ride. Today I had four runs in 20km with 900m elevation. On the weekends when I ride with friends I ride the Strive. I don't care about loyalty I want to ride as much as a can and I ride much more since I have the ebike. Does it make me a prostitute or something? Smile

 I have never been a E-Bike hater, but a few years ago I just didn't really see the point of them for the most part. Now that the bikes are starting to look good and we are seeing good use cases for them I can see me getting one in the future. If I am honest I hate riding up hills and view it as a necessary evil to get my fun in, while I wouldn't use one at my local trail centre as it's pretty flat but if it avoids me having to book uplifts then that's a good thing IMHO. In a couple of the places I ride that are push up's a lot of people are considering getting an Ebike.
