Whether it’s speed for race day or versatility for the weekend escape into the unknown, the Watia is the most wildly capable titanium gravel bike Litespeed has ever created. When it comes to a clean getaway into the dirt, no one else comes close.
Named appropriately, we hail Watia, deep in North Carolina's Nantahala National Forest. Well off the beaten path, Watia Creek is beautifully inconvenient; those that want to see its natural wonder have to really want it. It’s this small parcel we pay homage to, a parallel summation of where the Watia can take you: well off the grid.
We’ve created a technologically advanced gravel machine for everything you want it to be. The centerpiece for this version features internal cable-routing capability, with brake and shift cables ported into the frame for quiet, clean functionality. The Watia also features modern tire clearance capability with a smooth, agile geometry. Simply put, Watia has broken the normal conventions of what welded, metal construction has consisted of in gravel riding.
With speed for the race, titanium comfort for the distance, and tire clearance to handle any substrata, Watia is a fully capable machine. No matter what your playground looks like, Watia is versatile enough to take you wherever your adventures lead you.
