TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2017

The Xelius SL is the efficient and lightweight racing machine of choice for the FDJ cycling team. The innovative design where the rear triangle is attached to the top tube instead of the seat tube reduces the bike’s weight and improves riding comfort; it is something that's not often requested by pro riders, but it’s essential for long hours in the saddle! The Di2 battery is also cleverly integrated inside a support close to the BB, ensuring a lower centre of gravity for improved efficiency when standing on the pedals. Lapierre's Power Box Technology provides maximum stiffness where it matters the most, and the carbon layup is optimized for the best weight-to-stiffness ratio.
