We built the best—and then we made it better. The Spezia FI represents our pinnacle performance experience—with full integration. It features clean integration of the wires and brake housing internally through the handlebar, stem, bottom bracket, and frame, and out of the wind. The Spezia FI features a Chris King ThreadFit T47i threaded bottom bracket that allows the rear brake hose to be run internally inside the bottom bracket shell for a super clean aerodynamic profile.
The finest-performing titanium road bike just got tidier—and more aero.
In bringing this breathtaking creation to life, our imagination drifted to the Italian town of La Spezia. This northern coastal town is frequented by the Giro d’Italia and features everything you could dream of in a day of riding; flat coastal roads, punchy climbs like the nearby Biassa or the sustained descents (following the incredible views) from the Passo del Termine. That “little bit of everything” inspires the versatility we built into the Spezia FI.
The Spezia FI brings aerospace-grade titanium road bike construction to its absolute performance zenith. All Spezia FI tubesets—each with wall thicknesses adjusted in-house to meet exacting size-specific parameters—must exceed aerospace grade tolerances—and meet our precise weight standard before being accepted for production.
The centerpiece of the Spezia FI is a true Litespeed exclusive technology: our 6AL/4V sheet-formed titanium top tube. Handcrafted from a flat sheet into a tubeset, our 6AL/4V sheet top tube is lighter than a standard tube yet delivers greater tensile strength. The result is increased rigidity when climbing and sprinting. The Spezia FI’s front-end stiffness also allows it to track with confident control on descents
Litespeed’s shaping prowess is on full display with seatstays that are ovalized for drag reduction. A triaxially-ovalized downtube that is multi-shaped in a way only Litespeed can achieve. It yields a larger diameter weld point at the bottom bracket, resulting in greater power transfer capability and greater efficiency when driving on the flats or out of saddle on ascents. We focused on even the smallest details, including a CNC-crafted two-piece shell disc brake mount make for a surface that’s lighter and stronger than anything a 3D-printed titanium product can achieve.
Every advantage that the Spezia FI represents is on full display; from the externally butted headtube to shaping. It’s all there for you to behold.
The Spezia FI is finished in a true modern performance geometry with tire clearance to 35mm, lowered chainstays, a minimally elevated stack for proper ride height, and a snug rear triangle for sweet-spot balance, whether climbing or descending.
Our lightest disc brake road model—over 200 grams lighter than any other titanium disc brake road bike made today. And one that has the most discerning ride quality of any Litespeed road bike—ever. Fit, stability on any terrain, and the new pinnacle of lightweight titanium build capability; the Spezia FI is the new high bar in high-performance road riding.
