Lapierre Sensium 700 Disc 2016
The Lapierre Sensium 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 700 disc is the top of the range model with all the metaphorical bells and whistles! Shimano’s Ultegra Di2 groupset provides 22-gears, all of which shift using electronically controlled motors in the derailleurs. This incredible technology is favoured by many of the world’s best racers due to its ability to consistently shift in a fast and precise manner, even under strain. Another technological highlight of the Lapierre Sensium 700 disc are the disc brakes. While rim brakes may be the norm in road cycling hydraulic discs have many more benefits, chiefly their far greater stopping power. On a bike as capable as the Sensium it makes sense to equip it with Shimano’s excellent brakes with 140mm discs. Shimano also supply their sturdy RX31 wheels.
This premium level bike cuts no corners on its kit list as other highlights include a Zipp cockpit, Lapierre Carbon-fiber seatpost, and a Fizik Aliante saddle.
