Lapierre Ei shock on the Zesty, Spicy, X-Flow and XR
Sooooo......... you've all the heard the rumour about the revolutionary new Ei shock that has been developed by RockShox and Lapierre, well here's some info all about it.......
Lapierre and RockShox launch revolutionary electronic shock system called e:i shock
unveiled their revolutionary new technology the e:i shock system built
with the RockShox Monarch RT3 Relay Shock and based on the 2013 Monarch
RT3 damper. The intelligent system (e:i = electronic intelligence),
allows the rider to always have optimal rear shock adjustment regardless
of the terrain.
on the fork leg and stem cap to measure bump force and cadence sensors
in the bottom bracket to gauge pedaling input, information is passed to
the stem-mounted computer. Powered by a rechargeable battery, a small
electric motor mounted on the damper accurately adjusts the compression
settings to find the optimal position. This entire process takes .01
seconds between the sensors registering bump movement and cadence, to
adjustment of the rear shock. In addition, the system offers 4
adjustable modes and 5 sensitivity options.
Auto mode setting logic :
Pedaling + No shock = Blocked (locked)
Pedaling + light hits = Platform (medium)
Pedaling + Big hits = Open
No pedaling = Open
It's still possible to control your rear shock manually. There are 4 program modes:
1/ Fully automatic (5 levels of sensitivity)
The whole system only weighs 350 grams. Battery running time is 25 hours.
Lapierre's 2013 range will offer 10 models with e:i technology (XR 29, Zesty and Spicy)
Well I guess that's all the info we can give you at the moment. We have seen this in the flesh and it all seems to work as promised.
With a 0.1ms response time this system has the promise to do what no other has managed so far!
We will definately be having a demo on one ASAP so we will write a BLOG when we have!!
