The T3 offers everything you would expect from Litespeed's titanium engineers. It’s a race bike through and through, with the same geometry as the T1 -- plus the option to use disc brakes.
The T3 frame, hand-crafted from 3Al/2.5V titanium, is loaded with Litespeed’s legendary tube-shaping expertise. It features a tapered and oversized top tube, flattened and ovalized seat stays, and a biaxially ovalized down tube -- which add up to a bike that’s stiff and responsive, without compromising ride quality. In fact, it has been praised for its well-rounded nature.
Disc brakes add another layer of depth to the T3. With disc brakes becoming more common at all levels, this frame is up to the task: A beautifully machined flat mount, disc-compatible rear dropout handles the additional braking forces.
Throw in triple-butted chainstays, a 44mm headtube, and PF30 bottom bracket, and you have a USA-made masterpiece.
