Engineered to climb 

Imagine a bike that has conquered the highest summits, the largest monuments in the world of cycling. We’re talking about Alpe d’Huez, the Lakes of Covadonga, the Giro di Lombardia, etc. So many places where the Xelius has triumphed at the hands of Thibaut Pinot. The Xelius has no restrictions. It's a climber. It’s also a descendeur. Fast on flat ground. Lively. Comfortable. The perfect equation. Developed for professionals, but available to all cyclists. Technology for everyone.

Key Features

  • Join the legend

    An iconic model in the Lapierre range, the Xelius SL received glory with Thibaut Pinot on the Tour de France, the Giro and the Vuelta. But although the Xelius SL is capable of winning the greatest races on the planet, it remains a versatile and comfortable bike thanks to its design and unique 3D Tubular concept.
  • A unique manufacturing process

    The frame of the Xelius SL is made up of 300 or so UD SL carbon folds and parts which are arranged around a new latex mandrel before going into the mould. This first phase of construction allows for higher manufacturing quality and saves on weight.
  • Electrify your groupset

    Boasting accuracy and ease of use, the Shimano Ultegra Di2 R8050 electric chainset makes gear changes child's play. Ride fast with the 52x36 chainset and climb any slope with the 11-speed 11-30T cassette. And if you go faster than you planned downhill, the 160/140 mm disc brakes will slow you down.
