Lapierre Aircode SL 600 | 2018 | £2899

The 2018 Lapierre Aircode is updated to be lighter, stiffer and more aero. The Aircode has been due an update and the French manufacturer has done a stunning job here. The aim was to improve aerodynamics whilst ensuring the frame remains stiff and compliant. Changes to the new Aircode SL include revised geometry, the chainstays are 3mm shorter and the fork rake has been reduced, to bring it closer to the Xelius SL, a new aero seatpost, direct mount brakes and the TrapDoor technology that houses that Di2 battery in the downtube for better weight distribution. The frame profiles have been refined, and now shaped using a combination of NACA and Kamm Tail profiles, used where they deliver the necessary performance attributes. The downtube, for example, transitions from one to the other to increase lateral stiffness at the bottom bracket. Lapierre has also brought over the PowerBox carbon frame tech from its Xelius SL to the Aircode, which involves a carbon fibre layup that puts more material where it’s needed most to add stiffness in key places. The aim is to move the new Aircode SL closer to the Xelius SL in how it handles and responds to rider inputs.
