The Zesty name is iconic both within the Lapierre portfolio but also within the mountain bike world. The Zesty family has always been at the forefront of full-suspension mountain bike development and the latest incarnation is no different.
Developed with the help of pro riders, notably Nicolas Vouilloz, 10 times world downhill champion, Lapierre went to great lengths to get maximum thrills all-mountain capabilities for the Zesty. They focused on the details. In particular three main areas: the FIT programme, kinematics and geometry modernisation. Resulting in the one of the most well-rounded bikes available today.
Half-way between a full-suspension XC and an Enduro bike, with travel of 150 mm in 27.5" set-up and 140 mm in 29", the Zesty AM 5.0 is superior in performance when heading uphill compared to a pure Enduro bike and yet is more stable downhill than a full-suspension XC bike. To sum up, a bike that offers it all, and more.
The award-winning complete carbon framed Zesty AM 5.0 is fitted with a 1x12 SRAM GX, Rockshox Revelation RC Motion Control forks, Rockshox Deluxe Select+ Debonair rear shock, SRAM Guide R Brakes and LP Dropper post – the epitome of an all-mountain to everything mtb.
