RIDE #55 Round Table – Lapierre Xelius X700
With the relaunch of the Lapierre brand in Australia it was a good time to trial one of the well-spec’ed and good value carbon-fibre road bikes. With a retail price of AUD$4,999 you get a solid bike that was generally liked by those who rode it. When there’s a search to find something to be critical of, the assumption is that the bike is something worth considering if you’re in the market for something comfortable and reliable… and that would be correct.
Commentary from Rob Arnold, Jenny Fay, Alex Malone, Toby Shingleton and Greg Chalberg.
