Lapierre Sensium 500 CP 2016
The Lapierre Sensium 500 CP is a carbon-fiber road bike designed to chew up the miles! The Sensium is designed to appeal more to the enthusiast rider rather than the specialist racer. As a result of this the geometry is designed as the perfect compromise between sportive and race style riding.
All frames are constructed from uni-directional carbon-fibre, as well as the full carbon fork. The result is a very light frameset. Another benefit of carbon-fibre is its versatility, which Lapierre’s engineers can utilize to make some areas of the frame stiff for pedalling efficiency, and other areas such as the seatstays pliant for improved ride comfort. The smooth, swooping tube profiles and internal cable routing give the Lapierre Sensium a sophisticated look!
The Lapierre Sensium 500 CP could be the pick of the bunch! The mid-range model features a full Shimano 105 11-speed groupset, which splits hairs with Ultegra in terms of performance, but is significantly more affordable. 105 has benefited greatly from trickle down technology from more expensive groupsets, and as a result it delivers fast reliable shifts in a fairly lightweight package. Gearing comes with the option of compact and triple chainsets. Shimano’s RS-010 wheels aren’t designed for high speed racing, but instead they have an enviable reputation for durability, so on rough British roads these wheels are perfect! Michelin tyres like the wheels are very robust, and their 700x25c casing adds a touch more comfort compared to narrower 23c tyres. Lapierre use their own aluminium bar and stem combination, but also their lightweight carbon seatpost and a plush Selle Italia saddle.
