Lapierre eSensium 300 Review

Expert Rating

If quality is what you’re after in the best e bikes for women, the Lapierre eSensium 300 Road Bike is one tempting offer. For starters, its frame is built to accommodate the size of women, which has helped shave the weight of the bike down to only 30 lbs. Fitted with hydraulic disc brakes, inclement weather never stood a chance.

Why We Like It – Lapierre eSensium 300

The Lapierre eSensium 300 is only 30 lbs of multi-alloy frame fitted for the generally smaller size of women, in addition to comfortable seating and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with excellent stopping power.

Pros
  • Incredibly lightweight; only 30 lbs.
  • Frame is designed for women
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes superb in inclement weather
Cons
  • Max speed peaks at 15.5mph
  • Battery is a pain to remove

Durability & Build Quality

For 30 lbs of multi-alloy material, the Lapierre E Sensium is rather durable, and weighs nearly half of the Cube Kathmandu Hybrid 45. The integrated routing fork new E Sensium carbon alloy is tough for a carbon fork, capable of handling various terrain like mountains, rocks, and dirt trails.

Performance (Speed & Acceleration)

When it comes to speed, the hub motor doesn’t really offer that much speed; in fact, 15.5mph is fairly low, matching the Liv Thrive E+ 1 Pro in speed. The combination of Shimano RT66SS, Shimano Tiagra FC, rear derailleur Shimano Tiagra RD R4700GS, and the Shimano HG500 10-speed cassette Shimano is a great combination, offering plenty of speed variety.

Range & Battery

The 250Wh battery is by far the most impressive feature, capable of capping 70 miles if using pedal assistance sparingly, and seemingly unhindered by extra weight. Unfortunately, the battery pack is a pain to remove.

Safety Features

The electric road bike Lapierre has created isn’t packed with safety features, which is a big disappointment considering you’ll be dropping $3360 on it. It doesn’t even have reflectors.

Lapierre eSensium 300 Wrap Up

The Lapierre eSensium 300 isn’t reachable for the average rider, but for those who do pick one up, you’ve just entered the world of electric bikes in style and performance. Its ebike motion system and 250Wh battery pump out 70 miles of range. Not to mention its lightweight frame that accommodates women, and hydraulic disc brakes that stop on a dime.
