Nico Vouilloz Pinning It - Sneak Peek: Lapierre's 2014 Spicy 650B, Zesty AM 650B, and Zesty Trail 29er - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

Nico played a large role in the design and testing of the 2014 Lapierre models, including the decision to move to 650B. On his test track, he consistently saved one second over a 2:50 run. While not huge gain, every second counts at the races.

    "On his test track, he consistently saved one second over a 2:50 run"

    That kinda says it all...

    A 1 second improvement over 170 seconds (2:50) is a .6% gain.

    Nice for racers where every second counts. But for the rest of the population... Meh.

    I still prefer a more flickable & playful ride over high speed plow (which can be fun at times).
