Lapierre Sensium 500 Disc 2016
The Lapierre Sensium 500 disc 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 disc features the same gears and componentry as the regular 500, the difference is in the brakes and wheels.
Shimano’s recently revamped 105 groupset is brilliantly effective, and much more like Ultegra in terms of shifting and appearance. While the gears are great it’s the hydraulic disc brakes that are the real talking point! Long used in mountain biking hydraulic disc brakes provide far greater stopping power than rim brakes, allowing for later braking and better control when descending. The shimano brakes fitted to the Lapierre Sensium 500 disc are hugely effective! Shimano also supply wheels, RX05 units which deliver on their durability and strength. A carbon seatpost and Selle Italia are other classy highlights on this well appointed, and great looking bike.
