Lapierre is a bicycle manufacturing company based in Dijon, France.[1][2] Lapierre bicycles are ridden by French UCI ProTeam FDJ.


The company was founded 1946 by Gaston Lapierre in Dijon. His son, Jacky, took over management in 1960, and a new factory was built in 1972.[1]

Lapierre is owned by Accell Group, along with other bicycle brands such as Diamondback. Accell bought a 33% stake in January 1993, followed by the rest in April 1996.[1]

They now produce over 90,000 bicycles a year at three locations in France.[1]
