Sensa Giulia G2 Ultegra Mix Carbon Road Bike - 2018
The Sensa Giulia G2 custom carbon road bike is Sensa's cleverly engineered do-it-all road bike. A successor to the beloved Giulia, Sensa – exclusive to Merlin Cycles in the UK has managed to drop the weight, create more comfort and enhance the aerodynamics on this newest generation of Giulia. In a subtle graphite grey with black and red accents the stylish Giulia G2 is built for the sort of riding that we all do and with this custom edition Sensa allows you to choose your preferred Shimano groupset before building a Giulia specifically for you.
The Sensa Giulia G2 is stiff and responsive where it needs to be allowing you to sprint effectively. It descends brilliantly, being stable and confidence inspiring at speed and has been engineered to be as light and spritely as possible on the climbs. It isn’t all about stiffness and speed though, Sensa recognise the need for staying comfortable on those longer rides and have cleverly engineered some compliance into the seatstays to help isolate you from the unpredictable road surfaces.
The Sensa Giulia G2 carbon frame features Generation 5 Carbon – Sensa’s own race proven mix of carbon-fibre, optimised tubing dimensions that are specific to each frame size, enhanced clearance to allow you to fit slightly wider tyres and an AirFlow Fork with a 1.5” crown linking smoothly into the downtube.
Please Note: All of our bikes are built to order. This usually takes between 8-10 working days depending on time of year.
BenAwesome value at such a discounted price. Weighs around 8.1kg in size 58, with a 12cm stem and 44cm handlebar, in case you wonder. Tested for short outings in hilly terrain (so I can't comment on comfort on long rides) the bike feels fast and stable, although occasionally some vibrations cause noise in descents, which I have not sorted out yet. The gearing (minimum of 34x28) makes steep ascents a bit hard if you lack training as I do. Low-end shimano brakes work OK but still, that's mean on an otherwise well-equipped bike. Overall, I'm very pleased with my first carbon bike. Note however if you're ordering from outside UK that brake levers are reversed there.
R RomanisThis is a great bike for the money.
I`ve only done about 80miles on it so far however it feels both taut on almost all surfaces as well as comfortable. The geometry suits me well and I`ve been able to set the bike up how I like it. Feels light and fast and is prepped to take electronic gears should I wish to upgrade in future.
Somewhat surprised it didn`t come with even basic assembly instructions; and that I had to spend time refining both derailleur setups.
Overall very satisfied - would recommend.
