Ei Shock





Lapierre creates the first intelligent suspension!

What if your MTB analyzed the terrain and chose the right shock position for you ? Hard to believe ? Well, Lapierre did it. After 5 years of development and tests, the launch of e:i shock is a revolution for demanding riders. A Lapierre MTB, equipped with the e:i shock technology, means your rear shock is always in the right position and always functioning optimally. No more compromise!


How does it work?


This unique technological innovation gives your MTB intelligence: the ability to analyze the terrain and to instantly adapt the shock settings.

3 possibilities: open - platform - blocked


The sensors detect automatically the bumps and pedalings inputs, transfer the information to the shock, which adapts its position immediately.

In a few words:

  • Pedaling + no shock = blocked (locked)

  • Pedaling + light hits = platform (medium)

  • Pedaling + big hits = open (open)

  • No pedaling = open




If you want to control the shock by yourself, it is possible to choose between 4 settings:

1/ Automatic (with 5 levels of shock sensitivity) 

2/ Open

3/ Platform

4/ Blocked


Maximum reactivity 

The entire process takes .01 seconds between the sensors registering bump movement and cadence, to adjustment of the rear shock (distance between the front and rear wheel, travelling at 36 km/h) . Result : the position of your suspension system changes between 20 and 30 times per minute, much more than a rider could do manually. Thanks to this, you keep your focus on your riding and your bike is performing optimally.


A multi-function platform

The e:i shock display has the same functions as a bike computer (speed, chrono, distance, average speed, current speed…) and shows your cadence, the battery reserve (full charge: 25 hours) as well as the current position of the shock. The e:i shock system, aesthetic and compact, onlyweighs 350 gr.


E:i shock is available on a selection of 2013 XRZesty and Spicy models! Check the E:i Shock manual here or here.
