Equipped with a rider-friendly full Ultegra compact drive train, the carbon Sensium 400 CP has all the performance any rider could want, yet it is still coupled with all the comfort the Sensium is renowned for. Ritchey components outfit the cockpit while a set of Mavic Aksium wheels paired with the carbon fork keep it light and solid without sacrificing control in the corners, at higher speed, or in handling the unpredictable contours of the pavement. And to top it off the new handlebar tape is specifically designed to filter out vibrations and provide lasting grip, giving that very important contact point all the cushion a rider needs to stay on the bike all day.
Born from our race-proven bikes, the Sensium is designed from the ground up for long ride without the fatigue-inducing geometry one might find in a true race machine. The Sensium is an outstanding no-sacrifice blend of comfort and performance in road bike design. Its optimized geometry allows for broad applications in road riding – from a leisurely ride around the lake to a long endurance event – and it boasts all the great technology we use in the rest of our top-end bicycles. Rider position is optimized to be more upright with a clear view of the road ahead while taking away the strain on a rider’s neck, shoulders, and back. And an intelligent component and tire spec result in a bike line that gracefully couples performance and comfort.
Equipped with larger 25c volume tires the Sensium can handle any paved terrain with confidence without sacrificing performance or comfort. With an intelligent Shimano drivetrain spec and carefully designed internal cable routing shifting and braking performance are flawless. The high modulus and high resistance carbon fiber frame design also allows for both electronic and cable-actuated Shimano and Campagnolo components, and steering is precise with a tapered head tube and carbon fiber fork – a true design that combines high tech, strength, stiffness, and compliance in a versatile lightweight package.
