"Probably my favourite e-bike in the whole showroom." - Richard, Coulsdon branch.
You only need to look at the key features to understand that this is a seriously, seriously good electric bike. Greater than the sum of its parts, and its parts are the absolute best.
If you stripped all the bells and whistles away and looked at the bare bones of the wheels and the frame, you still have a great bike. Carbon wheels and a carbon frame are of the highest quality. The qualities of both are brought out by the addition of the long travel suspension and Fazua power system.
What the Manufacturer Says... "The feeling of a real All Mountain with the little extra power that will make the difference. We have a duty to offer bicycles that can be fitted to everyone’s needs. Our requirement was to offer a different product for “electro-sceptics” or people who want to switch to a softer engine. We have therefore combined the best of our know-how to create a new generation of eMTB AM. A smooth and jerk-free engine that is totally forgotten when you ride more than 25 kph, leaving the possibility of free pedalling without resistance and without noise. A promising autonomy to provide maximum pleasure. A precise bike in the driving, which allows you to position yourself correctly and easily. The eZesty is certainly heavier than a non-electric MTB in the same category, but this overweight is quickly forgotten when it comes to riding in committed singles."
Translation... What LaPierre are saying, in a rather complex way, is that this is a bike that feels as close to your beloved non-electric mountain bike as possible. The extra bulk that comes with standard electric mountain bikes can deter some mountain bikers, especially those who don't need huge amounts of power assistance. Agility and responsiveness are maintained with this design, so your skill as a rider is never overshadowed by the power coming from the bike.
Summary: Once you feel how responsive this electric bike is, you'll understand why it has become a favourite in the showroom.
