The go everywhere bike. Just like it’s big brother the Spicy Team, the Spicy 527 was designed from the ground up with help from 10 time Downhill World Champion and mountain bike legend, Nicolas Vouilloz. The Spicy 527’s newly refined geometry is designed to take gnarly hits, maneuver through the tightest of sections, and climb up the steepest pitches without compromise.
The frame and swing arm are constructed of Alloy Surpreme 6 that is one of the strongest alloys used in the bicycling industry. To keep things bulletproof, all cables are internally routed including the dropper seatpost. Ultra beefy seatstays house the rear brake caliper inboard for impact protection and eliminates brakejack through optimal positioning. All new enduro geometry takes full advantage of the increased traction and control available from 27.5 wheels, with a longer top tube, lower bottom bracket, shorter stem and wider bars.(Frame tech link)
The Spicy Team is designed around OST+® (Optimized Suspension Technology) suspension system, a patented VPP (virtual pivot point) design that eliminates pedal bob while remaining fully active over bumps. The result is an extremely efficient ride with excellent pedaling capabilities and a lightweight/low maintenance frame thanks to the simple architecture of the suspension design. OST+® suspension will take you up, down and everywhere in between.(OST tech link)
The Spicy 527 is equipped with the e:i shock (electronic intelligence) which seamlessly adjusts the rear shock to terrain and rider input, a true revolution in suspension technology. After 5 years of collaboration with Lapierre and Rockshox, the e:i shock is capable of adjusting from fully locked to fully open in 0.1 seconds! This changes the suspension game completely, turning an ultra-plush descender into a hill-climbing monster in fractions of a second. The result is no more guesswork on the trail, no fumbling with lockout levers and no more compromise. Just set it and ride!(e:i tech link)
