Lapierre Reviews

Lapierre

In 1946, Gaston Lapierre started a small bicycle business in Dijon, France (Côte-d’Or – Burgundy), and he found success in the industry. Optimizing the weight of their bikes is a focus. They desire to have the lightest bikes in their respective markets. They became part of the Accell Group between 1993 and 1996, along with Haibike, Raleigh, and Diamondback. This transition has led to increased global distribution and I reviewed some of their first electric bikes to reach America in 2014 at a special media event in New Jersey.
