Fully-electrified with Shimano's Di2 system, the Litespeed Li2 delivers on all levels: stunning good looks, a perfected and easy shift-under-load drivetrain, and our legendary ride-tuned experience. ROAD Magazine raves: 'They may not be the first company that comes to mind when you think of high end carbon fiber bikes, but if they keep building bikes like the Li2, they soon will be.'
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 Li2 is built from 30T carbon fiber. All of the L-Series bikes are formed with our own Reactive Pressure Molding (RPM) construction, BB386 EVO technology — a wide-bearing BB30 system — and a barely UCI -legal 1.125” x 1.5” tapered steerer fork.
