Litespeed Cherohala Frame

Find that thing that’s reaches into your soul, the thing on two wheels that makes you happy. On road—or off—it’s just around the bend….on the Cherohala.

The Cherohala frame appropriately pairs with its namesake, the Cherohala Skyway, which winds through the beautiful backcountry of the Cherokee and Nantahala National Forest. Its miles of winding roads and dirt paths are rewarded with scenic overlooks and waterfalls. It’s this remarkable parcel that inspired a remarkable bike, built to explore, anything from your backyard paths to Tour Divide.

With a slightly more relaxed geometry, yet a lively titanium ride that’s poised to play, we’ve achieved day-long ride nirvana in the Cherohala, the finest titanium all-road frame available. 

Designating the Cherohala “all road” doesn’t even begin to encompass its capabilities. Sourcing our top-shelf 3Al/2.5V titanium tubing, our team of handcraftsmen massage the tubeset wall thickness, strategically allowing for thin walls wherever possible. And ready to load up for a weekend of bikepacking or a big multi-state traverse, built-in fender mounts with rack mounts available as an add-on.

Getting lost is what the Cherohala was made for (but we recommend bringing your GPS just in case). In the same breath, it’s very much a road-ready ride that climbs and accelerates well, and handles fast, sweeping descents with aplomb. 

The result is an elegant, classically titanium ride with a light weight that belies its tough titanium exterior, and road heritage in its bones…yet presents a level of in-saddle comfort that is made for long hours in the saddle. 

While the Cherohala frame is ready to rock in its stock configuration, it can be truly made yours with any number of customizations available. From our etched finish upgrade to bottle boss and fuel storage placement. Prefer a custom paint treatment to set your Cherohala apart? Our team of craftsmen in Tennessee are ready to make your bike truly yours, with fully customizable options available. Call our team to talk about just how easy it is to make the Cherohala your dream ride—in every way imaginable.
