Overview

The C3 offers supremely aero features at an incredible value - because every watt matters. It’s proof that performance isn’t reserved for skinny guys with fat wallets.


The C3 comprises a full suite of aerodynamic frame features: AeroLogic shaped tubes, 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 C3 is formed from 30T 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.
