Ultimate High-Performance Road/Aero Road
The Ultimate: Two-wheeled perfection
What happens when you push a team of riders, engineers and craftsmen to create the most technologically-advanced titanium road racing platform? When you take off the limiters, the best imaginable ride is the result. That’s the Ultimate.
Indeed, it’s no overreach to say the Ultimate exemplifies all the things required in a pro-level performance frame. Light weight, aerodynamics, stiffness and compliance are all delivered in deftly-handcrafted titanium bike making it the most technically-advanced race machine available—anywhere. The result is a design so special, so all-encompassing, it’s truly deserving of its legendary name.
There are few road racing platforms with the lasting heritage of the Ultimate. It was first introduced as Litespeed’s premier 3AL-2.5V titanium race bike, utilizing our most progressive designs to create a bike with exceptional handling and stiffness characteristics. A USPRO national championship, several stage victories, even a UCI World Road Racing Championship—rebadged— were amassed on Litespeed’s then flagship frame.
Today, that heritage lives on, but the ceiling of what’s possible in a racing frame has been raised to an even higher standard. Our team of craftsmen have pushed the envelope of what’s possible to create the finest titanium race machine. Thin, swept seatstays deliver both enhanced comfort and wind-cheating aerodynamics. All the frame’s tubesets have been shaped with purpose, promising out-of-saddle sprint stiffness and responsive climbing acumen, all delivered at premium level with a geometry that delivers that perfect balance of handling, quickness, light weight climbing punch.
And being a Litespeed, it delivers that signature titanium ride; stiff as you want, but over the long hours, comfortable as the material absorbs the buzz of even the roughest chip-sealed roads. This is the best of the best in titanium.
The Ultimate can truly be the ultimate racing frame of your dreams. Whether choosing standard frame decals or our complimentary, (and beautifully understated) etched finish upgrade, even a bespoke colored paint treatment to truly set your frame apart from all others, our team in Tennessee is ready to make your Ultimate yours to the letter; the epitome of two-wheeled perfection.
