This year, we are proud to introduce the L-Series; refined, all-around road-racers with multiple asymmetric and shape- specific design features. Over four years in development, the L-Series arrives with a state-of-the-art feature set including bb 386 technology — a wide-bearing bb 30 system co-developed with FSa, bH, and Wilier — a Zero-Stack headset system and the barely uci-legal 1.125" x 1.5" tapered steerer fork, plus an overall attention to detail simply not available on other comparable pro-grade bikes. These features are made possible by advances in process and material technology, of course, but also as a result of our years of extensive ride-tuning experience and historic dedication to utilizing every possible material advantage.
Ready to rock for 2013, the L-Series — recently granted full UCI approval — features a multi-shaped tube set incorporating Continuous Cross-Sectional Morphology throughout as well as Litespeed's Quadrilateral System to manage simultaneous torsional-frontal and lateral-load input from both road and rider. Asymmetric down tube design allows for balanced, efficient drive-train energy transfer.
Wind-tunnel research and three years of extensive development helped us craft the flawless c-Series ride. Stealth fighter matte finish, shrouded water bottle down tube mount and Reactive pressure Molding (RpM) carbon construction translate into the ultimate race-ready workhorse. Tube cross sections and size variable tubing deliver an aerodynamic advantage on both descents and flats, while the ride-tuning gives you an advantage the entire time.
Every model in the c-Series is so radically efficient that, on average, the complex engineering of these bikes reduces aero watts by an astounding 20.4 watts compared to a standard, non-aero road bike. That's an easy 16% advantage across all yaw angles and the aero equivalent of an expensive set of race wheels — minus, of course, the expense. all models feature bb30 technology, a Zero- Stack headset system and 1.125" x 1.5" tapered steerer fork for maximum performance.
