Sensa Aquila SL Review

When it has come to creating a near perfect race bike, the Sensa team have started at the very beginning. This is in regards to the lightweight frame that the design team have put together. The frame weighs a mere 940 grams. All of the other components, including the fork, have similarly been kept to as low a weight as possible.

The lack of weight is instantly felt, just by straddling the bike. This is definitely something that you want in a race or road bike and here, the Sensa Aquila SL delivers. So now, it was show time. From the first push of the pedal, the Aquila SL took off, all but flying across the road. All of that effort that went in to minimizing the weight of the bike really paid off!

Another thing that we were pleasantly surprised with was the level of comfort. Now, the seat itself is quite narrow which can seem a bit uncomfortable. However, when coupled with the seatstays and a 27.5 mm seatpost, the Aquila SL is afforded a great deal of comfort. This is something that we discovered even as we took in on some bumpier terrain. It is a good sign that the bike is not afraid to take the brunt of the terrain.

Despite this comfort, it is important to mention that the Sensa Aquila SL is still strictly a performance bike. Now, you may not want to use it in races. Nonetheless, it is still best suited to the individual who wants to get from one point to another as fast as possible.

The Verdict
