There cannot be many people who've come to our showrooms to try an Yamaha-powered hardtail - just as this one is - and didn't absolutely love it. The power off the line that a Yamaha motor gives you - think the power of a diesel motor - is so well transmitted by a hardtail frame that you can positively gallop away up the hills with a great big smile on your face.
At £2159, it wins in the value-for-money category too. It's an exceptional price for an electric mountain bike that comes with a 500wh battery.
The front suspension forks offer 120mm travel, which won't be enough for hardcore downhillers, but for most customers who are riding off-road on well-maintained trails this gives you a good amount of suspension. These Suntour forks are designed for cross-country riding so strike a good balance between lightness and shock absorption.
Summary: A no-nonsense, all-excitement electric hardtail mountain bike that offers great value for money.
As with all our e-bikes, you can give them a test-ride, so get in touch to arrange one at your nearest branch.

About the Lapierre brand
In 1946, Gaston Lapierre started a small bicycle business in Dijon, France (Côte-d’Or - Burgundy), quickly finding success in an industry that was experiencing rapid growth in general.
A regular a-top cycling podia in international competition, Lapierre turned its attention to electric bikes in 2013 with their first Overvolts. All the Lapierre bikes are assembled in France by builders, who sign a Bike Pass that is delivered with each bike, and makes it possible to control quality at every stage of the assembly process.
