Spotted at last week’s E3 Prijs Vlaanderen race under the auspices of the FDJ team, Lapierre unveiled it’s new Pulsium endurance road bike.
While details are still forthcoming, according to the French brand, the Pulsium’s new Y-shaped top tube features an elastomer "bung" that not only helps reduce road vibration, but it contributes to 27% more vertical flex than their Sensium model.
"Its geometry and unique tube design result in a frame that’s very physically tolerant. It offers incredible vertical flexibility while keeping the lateral rigidity that’s indispensable for a race bike destined for the UCI World Tour."
As the phrase "endurance" bike might imply, the Pulsium features a more "relaxed" geometry as compared to Lapierre’s more race-specific models, wherein 4mm longer chainstays were utilized for increased stability and greater tire clearance, as well as a 15mm taller head tube for a more upright riding position.
Other features include an adapter for the rear brake that allows for the use of either short or long reach calipers, along with an aero profile, integrated seat post clamp.
Lapierre expects to have the Pulsium available to dealer in July in six different sizes. And, pricing is yet to the announced.
