The Overvolt Carbon is quite simply the electrically-assisted mountain bike of the year. Why you may ask? Because it’s the only electric mountain bike on the market to resemble its muscular counterpart in terms of behavior. A technical accomplishment made possible by intelligently placing the battery as close as possible to the crankset case, inspired by Gravity Logic Project innovation. The mass is optimally distributed and the center of gravity lowered, which provides for excellent stability even on technically challenging descents. Moreover, the purity of the carbon and its exclusive appeal are bound to win over those who appreciate a top-of-the-line original look.
The OVERVOLT AM CARBON 700+ takes full advantage of the OST+ suspension, which generates 150 mm of clearance. With a fully carbon composition, this bike offers a geometry designed for enjoying trails as well as endurance runs. On the standard Boost, the wide wheel rims are mounted with front/rear differentiated tires in 2.8 format, to tackle the most technically challenging routes, whether uphill or downhill.
Equipped with the Bosch Performance CX motorization, a market reference, this bike is capable of overcoming your worst nightmares. With the new E-MTB assistance mode, the level of assistance being delivered can be modulated. It adapts to the rider’s power and pace in order to supply the right amount of assistance at the right time. The functioning is automatic, the rider can fully concentrate on the riding task. With a RockShox Revelation fork mount, adjustable in hydraulic compression, in front and a Debonair version RockShox Deluxe RT shock absorber, adjustable in expansion and dual open/pedaling modes, this bike is ready to crush the trails.
The Overvolt AM 700+ Carbon is fitted with an 11-42 SRAM cassette, associated with a 1 x 11-speed transmission and a SRAM NX derailleur, allowing you to easily ascend all the climbs while preserving battery autonomy. The SHIMANO Deore brakes, sized at 203 mm in both the front and rear, selected for being lightweight and precise, guarantee powerful and consistent braking during descents.
Its LAPIERRE Eam+ wheels have been specially developed for the stresses inherent in electrically-assisted mountain bikes. Associated with the MAXXIS High Roller II tires in front for the tradeoff between weight and traction in curves and with Rekon+ 3C triple rubber in back for both efficiency and durability, you’ll benefit from exceptional skid resistance and steering control for an electric mountain bike. Moreover, this bike is fitted with a telescopic seat post controlled from the handlebars to facilitate descents and crossings.
