The L1 is our go-to carbon road race bike. With race-proven geometry, Litespeed’s finely tuned ride feel and a frame worthy of our Astellas pro cycling team.
In theory, symmetry is beautiful. In practice, however, it doesn’t always yield the best possible bike. So the L-Series frames incorporate multiple asymmetric, shape-specific design features that enhance stability and performance.
At the front of the frame, Litespeed’s proprietary Quadrilateral System creates a box shape that resists braking forces and flex from both road and rider. The asymmetric down tube/seat tube junction provides efficiency through the drivetrain. And greater diameters throughout the chainstays, seat tube and down tube help eliminate bottom bracket flex — for maximum power to the pedals.
The L1 is built from 30T carbon fiber. Our L-Series bikes are formed with our own Reactive Pressure Molding (RPM) construction, BB386 EVO technology, a wide-bearing BB30 system, and a UCI -legal 1.125” x 1.5” tapered steerer fork.
