Sensa Aquila SL LTD Carbon Road Bike 2016
Sensa Aquila SL LTD Road Bike
Code: S1783 AX5 Sensa Aquila SL LTD Road Bike - 6800 Mix - Supra RA PRO SL Wheels 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 Aquila SL frame feature monocoque construction with 1.5 headtube and matching full carbon fork unique to each model. It has full internal cable routing, PF86 bottom bracket for added stiffness. 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. Introduced last year to positive reviews and excellent customer feedback, the Aquila SL remained pretty much untouched for 2016. 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.

About Merlin Cycles
This cycling deal was found at Merlin Cycles, one of the UK's most famous bike shops, located up North!
Merlin Cycles started life in 1993, founded by John Moss as a mail order Mountain Bike business ran directly from his spare bedroom in Chorley. Due to early growth, shortly afterwards he opened his first outlet in Ormskirk, and a few years later in 1998, the company grew into larger premises, moving to Leyland.
In the 1990's and early 2000's, Merlin were known for their ranges of mountain bike hardtails, released under the Rock Lobster and Merlin "Malt" brands. These steel and aluminium hardtails were designed in house, available as framesets or complete bikes, representing excellent value for money. The company was also well known for their handbuilt MTB wheels, which in my experience lasted for years without needing truing!
Merlin have always been competitive on pricing, particularly on suspension forks, brakes, wheels and groupsets, which continues to this day. Nowadays they have introduced road cycling equipment and clothing into their product ranges, due to the increase in popularity in this field, thus catering for a broader range of cyclists.
