Aircode DRS 8.0 £6,999.00
Developed for speed
With pure lines and a distinguished design, the new Aircode DRS, third evolution of the aero model in the range, marks a new page in the history of Lapierre road bikes. Designed for high speed, engineered to defy the laws of physics, the Aircode DRS is more rigid, faster, more aerodynamic and more comfortable than the earlier model. At the handlebars, Arnaud Démare became the most prolific rider in the peleton in 2020. It's not an accident.
Drag Reduction SystemThe Aircode DRS (Drag Reduction System) is more streamlined, more distinctive, more rigid, more aerodynamic and also more comfortable than the previous Aircode SL. The combination of Lapierre's carbon expertise, from the choice of fibres to the type of construction, and the experience of the Groupama FDJ team, has resulted in a bike that plays with the laws of physics.
Integration workTo further improve aerodynamics, our engineers have worked on integrating the cables and conduits inside the cockpit and the frame. To achieve this, we have developed a specific stem and fork and chosen to use 1.5’’ bearings. This internal routing streamlines the Aircode DRS 8.0.
Versatile and high-performing wheelsCombined with the UD SL carbon frame of the Aircode DRS 8.0, the wheels, which weigh 1,472 grams, maximise transfer of the rider's power and also provide versatility for all trials thanks to their all-purpose profile.
