Features

  • 60T nano carbon fiber provides a lighter and more laterally rigid frame than the rest of the C-Series.
  • Size-specific tubing
  • Internal cable routing
  • Reactive Pressure Molding (RPM) carbon reduces weight, increases stiffness and adds durability.
  • Shrouded water bottle downtube reduces turbulent airflow and drag.

Overview

Even in a peloton, aero is important. Litespeed has been preaching that mantra for years with our C-Series bikes. Our top-of-the-line C1R frameset minimizes wind resistance -- to help you maximize your potential.

The flagship C1R comprises a full suite of aerodynamic frame features: High-modulus AeroLogic shaped tubes, internal cable routing, aero seat post, and an aerodynamically shrouded water bottle mount. Even the head tube height is optimized to cheat the wind -- because we can shape it for speed, unlike a stack of stem spacers.

Our AeroLogic technology uses carefully designed tube shapes and cross sections to minimize wind resistance and maintain stability at high speeds. Compared to a standard road bike, the C-Series frame reduces the power (watts) needed to maintain a given speed by more than 16% across all yaw angles.

What’s inside matters, too: The C1R is formed from 60T nanotube carbon fiber using Litespeed’s Reactive Pressure Molding (RPM) construction. RPM eliminates any extra material inside the frame, helping to reduce weight even further while increasing lateral stiffness.

The C1R begs to be ridden fast. Really fast. Just know that Litespeed isn’t responsible for speeding tickets.
