Tour de France Champion Greg LeMond’s Carbon E-Bikes Make Cycling So Chic
LeMond Bicycles, a company that encapsulates Greg LeMond’s legendary cycling career and 30 years of building the most game-changing innovations in cycling, announces the launch of its first models: e-Bikes that reflect the LeMond team’s meticulous approach to design, technology, and innovation.
With the launch of the Prolog and Dutch e-Bikes, LeMond is not only introducing bikes as light or lighter than anything in the category; the company is also bringing several first-to-market features including the first e-Bikes with carbon fibre fenders, basket and racks. The bike designs are minimalist, with an integrated battery, motor, and lighting system to maintain the clean, uncluttered lines of a traditional bike. Greg LeMond has always championed innovation and new technologies in cycling, from the first aero helmet to aero bars, and in 1986 he was the first-ever to win the Tour de France on a carbon fibre bicycle frame. LeMond is the evolution of cycling innovation and a desire to make the highest quality bikes with style and value.
Fast, fluid and lightweight, the LeMond Prolog eBike is what happens when a three-time Tour de France winner designs a bike for everyday use. From frame and fork to fenders, LeMond is taking carbon fibre to new levels with full carbon fibre frame, barstem, and seatpost. The Prolog features seamless battery integration with the sleek MAHLE X35+ motor and a dual-mode light system fully integrated into the barstem and rear seat stays. The LeMond Prolog also features the Shimano GRX Hydraulic 1×11 drivetrain, tubeless compatible aluminium wheelset, and Spurcycle bell. The Prolog is available in Blanc, Noir and Rosa colourways, and starts at $4,500.
According to Greg, the Lemond Dutch is “one of the best decisions we’ve ever made,” a timeless, practical design that LeMond has made lighter and faster. The Dutch-style bike is one of the most popular designs in the history of the bicycle, particularly in flat, dense European cities, and LeMond has made it ready for the world stage—a gorgeous carbon fibre eBike for any outfit, any rider, and any road. The Dutch shares the same feature set of the Prolog, with carbon fibre stem, seatpost and fenders, seamless battery integration with the MAHLE X35+ motor, the fully integrated dual-mode light system, Shimano GRX Hydraulic 1×11 drivetrain, and premium accessories throughout. The Dutch is available in Mint, Noir and Rosa colourways and starts at $4,500.
The base model weight for both LeMond e-Bikes is just 27.2 lbs. Available upgrades include the LeMond LC30 carbon fibre wheelset, carbon fibre basket and rack, and the Shimano Di2 electronic-shifting drivetrain.
The first LeMond e-Bikes are shipping in January 2021.
