Lapierre Spicy 916 2013
The Lapierre Spicy 916 2013, has having completely changed for 2012 continues with the new OST+ frame. Building on the previous success of the Lapierre Spicy OST platform the new Lapierre Spicy 916 offers an overall improved set of geometry that makes the Spicy 916 handle even better than its predecessor.
This is a bike we have waited a long time for, a full carbon Lapierre Spicy. Its no secret that Lapierre share frame components between all their OST and OST+ suspension platforms. Lapierre delivered their first full carbon Zesty three years ago and we have had to wait for the Spicy to get the same treatment.
The original 916 was as good as it could get, alloy front triangle and carbon rear end with high end components. Then, for 2012 we got the full carbon version and now for 2013 we get the new Rockshox Stealth dropper seatpost, all internally hose routed for 100mm of adjustment on the fly and Fox Kashima coating on the shock and fork.
We offer a few limited upgrades for this bike as it pretty much has it all, already.
Lapierre are so confident with their OST+ platform improvements that they have abandoned the need to fit a Fox Talas adjustable height fork, saving weight and adding a new level of plushness to the front end suspension.
Like the Lapierre Zesty, the Lapierre Spicy also sports a shorter chainstay, a lower bottom bracket height and a whole one degree slacker DH head angle allows the rider to tear down twisting, tight terrain, tackling steeper descents, taking them faster and with more confidence whilst maintaining that new lower slung centre of gravity to keep you stable so you can smooth out everything in your path. An oversized DH front rotor means you can carry more speed and drop anchors when you really need to.
The Lapierre Spicy 916 2013 has taken Enduro riding to a whole new level. An overall shorter wheelbase makes tight cornering even easier than the previous generations using the OST platform. A down hill, freeride bike that can climb!
Buy the Lapierre Spicy 916 2013 OST+ if you want the best climbing 160mm travel full suspension mountain bikes that eats descents and wins Mega style Enduro events with high end components at an XC weight.
