For those riders who prefer a combination of great performance and a more comfortable ride, then watch out for Lapierre’s 2011 model Sensium 400 CP.

Aside from specializing in its Carbon HM Monocoque frame, the Sensium 400 CP also uses an SRAM GXP bottom bracket, which provides better adjustment to prevent tension with the bike’s chain. To lessen times of vibration, an elastomeric connector at the top of the seat stays was used.

From the front, rear derailleurs to the brakes and shifters, SRAM Force was employed, resulting in its excellent transmission and shifting. Lapierre Sensium 400 CP comes in 5 sizes and 4 versions in 2011.
