Arnaud Démare’s Lapierre Bike size 2021

This is Arnaud Démare’s Lapierre Bike size 2021.

The talented French sprinter is racing on the new Lapierre Aircode DRS 2021 for the team Groupama FDJ.

The Lapierre Aircode DRS 2021 has been seen on some spring races before the 2020 season got into a forced break. The bike was ready for official release and the Lapierre’s managers did hold on the official release until racing resumed. The Aircode DRS 2021 finally has been officially released in September 2020.

The geometry has changed slightly compare than its predecessor. It got a more aggressive geometry with a steeper seat angle and longer reach. Yet the comfort has been enhanced at the same time with the seat stays meeting the top tube. Lapierre claims this does improve the comfort by 12%. I am not sure how to measure this, but any form of comfort is welcome.

To make it short, the Tarmac SL7 is taking the best of both models, lightweight Tarmac SL6 and Aero Venge. The Tarmac SL7 is presented as a “Do-it-all”, more aero than the SL6 and yet still light and stiff enough to suit the climbers and sprinters of the team.

It is also making logistic more simple for Bora – Hansgrohe team to carry only one time of bike for the whole team, it does simplify bike swaps on the go as long as size is close enough to fit the needy rider.
