Sensa Aquila SL Road Bike - 2016
It's pronunced "ah-keel-uh" by the way.
The Aquila SL is the lightest carbon frame made by Sensa and the sloping geometry frame has been designed for long days in the saddle with plenty of climbing.
All Aquila SL frames feature monocoque construction with 1.5 headtube and matching full carbon fork unique to each model. All are Shimano Di2 electronic-shifting compatible. There’s full internal cable routing whether running mechanical or electronic shifting. A PF86 bottom bracket. Optimised geometry and tubing dimensions for each size.
The Sensa Aquila SL is the lightest frame in the Sensa road range making it ideal for any long rides- especially if it’s hilly. The frame has been developed for European Gran Fondo type events with lots of climbing and lots of miles where light weight, as well as comfort, is a must.
The sloping geometry frame is a combination of Generation 6 Carbon with Zero Void Curing technology resulting in a lightweight frame which is stiff, durable and reliable. Extra comfort comes from the Flexy Stays and slim seat post. Geometry and tubing dimensions are optimized for each frame size.
The Aquila SL is Di2 ready and has full internal cable routing whether using mechanical or electronic shifting. Its big PF86 bottom bracket is compatible with double, compact and triple cranksets depending on your needs.
Introduced last year to positive reviews and excellent customer feedback, the Aquila SL remained pretty much untouched for 2016. Phew. The new Salita SL fork up front is new however. It’s a little bit more sleekly aero but the weight and ride feel remain.
