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.
  • A versatile groupset

    With the full Shimano 105 R7000 chainset, the Xelius SL 5.0 DISC offers reliability and versatility. The compact 50x34 chainset, combined with an 11-speed 11-30T cassette, provides for smooth pedalling on flat ground and also allows you to attack the greatest altitudes with at speed.
