Xelius EFi 100
Bringing the same unmatched level of performance and ride quality offered across the line, the Xelius EFi 100 offers the best in value of high-end race bikes. Built with a modest assortment of components, the EFi 100 is a machine that will push your racing potential without breaking the bank.
The Xelius frame is constructed using Lapierre Efficient Frame Interactive (EFi) technology that was developed to optimize rider input and feel of the bike. The frame is built using single lay-up, monocoque construction that utilizes two different grades of carbon at specific zones to balance power and comfort. The head tube, down tube, and chain-stay represent the “power-zone” of the bike so we built these with single strands of high modulus carbon. The high modulus carbon offers a stiff pedaling platform that maximizes the power transmission from the cranks to the rear wheel creating an extremely efficient bike. Conversely, the Comfort Zone – top tube, seat tube and seat stay – are built with high resistance carbon that act to dampen upward forces on the frame such as potholes to create a smoother and more enjoyable ride. New carbons have been introduced for 2014 in the Xelius EFi frame that has dropped 80 grams, resulting in an overall 890-gram frame.
The Xelius EFi 100 is spec’d with a Shimano 105 full group set that provides consistent and reliable shifting, with a compact crank, Lapierre’s full carbon front fork, Mavic Aksium WTS 23c wheelset, Ritchey Curve Comp handlebar, and a Selle Italia SL saddle. The perfect combination of performance grade components and race proven design to elevate your riding experience.
