The Yamaha PW-ST motor is the 'never get stuck' motor with its 70nm of torque and enormous pulling away power. Neither steep hills nor rough, muddy tracks is going to slow you down. The Yamaha motors generally give you a heap of assistance right at the top of your pedal stroke (where you need it most), leaving you to build the rest of the momentum. It's a very exciting ride sensation.
All Mountain Supreme 5 aluminium frame
A pleasingly pared down frame is what struck us most about this electric full-sus bike. Where other e-MTBs have really embraced the chunky, bold aesthetic, the Overvolt is keeping it light, agile and much more like the MTB you're used to.
Overall, the Overvolt stays true to the MTB experience. It has the agility and the flow that you're used to - there's nothing crazy or weird in the design - it's just got that extra spark, and that's what's going to make you fall in love with it.
Summary: An incredible value electric full-sus bike at under £3.5k.
As with all our e-bikes, this is available to test-ride. Contact your nearest showroom to reserve your slot. Size guide: Medium

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.
