A legendary bike reborn. The all-new Ultimate series features a slightly aerodynamic tube set with modern geometry and technology. It's the Ultimate combination of light weight, aerodynamics, stiffness, and compliance.

Ultimate Road now features 12mm thru-axle disc brakes and room for up to 30mm tyres. With cold-worked tube shaping to increase overall frame stiffness - the Ultimate is receiving the same attention to detail as our flagship T1sl road bike and titanium components manufactured for aerospace applications.

ultimate road paint options

We're excited to offer five bright and metallic color options for the new Ultimate Road. Framesets are hand-painted with care in our USA factory. Painted titanium frames not your thing?
