With 150mm of travel, you might be tempted to hop right on the chair lift, though Lapierre's Zesty AM 427 climbs so well you certainly can skip the lift line. This hot ride features a lightweight frame and a RockShox Monarch E:i shock that senses and analyzes the trail and automatically adjusts your settings for the smoothest, most responsive ride. Paired with a RockShox Revelation fork out front, no matter how hectic the trail, nothing will hang you up. The Zesty rolls on 27.5-inch Race Face Turbine wheels that fly over obstacles yet remain playful. For the drivetrain, Race Face and Shimano deliver a quality 2x10 system that gives you plenty of push for speed and a wide range of gears for everything else. The spice of this ride continues with a KS Lev Integra dropper post that lets you get into a gravity-battling riding position instantly.
