Sensium

 

The road won’t stop. What about you?

 

Our Sensium is available this year in 5 models, including a female specific model that boasts a 10-speed triple drivetrain. Fitted with ultra-high performance and versatile components, the 2015 Sensium is ready to take on any challenge: 11-speed compact or 10-speed triple Shimano drivetrain, Mavic or Shimano wheels, Shimano brakes….

The major new feature on the 2015 Sensium is the addition of disc brakes! The Sensium 500 is fitted with 140 mm Shimano disc brakes, paired with Shimano RX31 Disc wheels. The 11-speed compact Shimano Ultegra Di2 drivetrain, the Deda cockpit and the Fizik Aliante saddle complete this assembly dedicated to performance and efficiency.

With its perfect geometry and its specific assembly of fibres, the Sensium is built for endurance and really highlights the qualities of carbon: lightness, rigidity and absorption. The monocoque front triangle is made from HM (high-modulus) and HR (high-resistance) fibres, and encourages vertical flexibility while preserving lateral rigidity. To achieve that, extreme precision is used when orienting the fibres during the manufacture of each tube. The HR-fibre seat stays (tube-to-tube assembly) working together with the lengthened chain stays (+4 mm compared to the Xelius EFI) enable perfect vibration dissipation and excellent transfer of pedal power to the rear wheel. With its longer chain stays, for greater stability, and a higher head tube (+10 mm compared with Xelius EFI) for a more natural ride position, the Sensium’s geometry makes it your steed of choice for long classics.
