With a special blend of light weight, stiffness and aerodynamics, the Ultimate has always represented Litespeed’s pinnacle of road racing versatility. With victories at everything from your local stage race to world titles and tour wins, it’s one of the winningest bikes in cycling.
With those superlatives in mind, we finally conceptualized a titanium gravel bike meritorious of that name. One dialed to attack everything from the unrelenting flintstone of Emporia, Kansas, to a weekend session with friends kicking up dust. Welcome the Ultimate Gravel.
The Ultimate Gravel is our pure all-around performer. On the roads, our 3AL/2.5V titanium downtube and seattube—teardropped for a touch of aero advantage—deliver drivetrain stiffness at speed in the drops and up punchy climbs.
But when you transition onto the dirt, our deftly-engineered tubesets deliver the comfort and control that make titanium the ideal material for gravel bikes. The Ultimate Gravel’s swept titanium seatstays help deflect vertical impact on even the rockiest trails, while the entire frame’s inherent vibration-damping capabilities absorb high-frequency vibrations of washboard roads, leaving body fatigue in the dust as you power ahead late in a race.
With plenty of frame clearance, 1X options and options for fender mounts, you can make the Ultimate Gravel whatever you choose; a machine ready for 200 hard miles of racing, a comfy weekend backcountry bikepacking ride, or anything in between; just contact us to discuss how to make it truly yours. With the Ultimate Gravel, it just doesn’t get any better.
This is it: the dirt-worthy drop bar bike by which all others are measured; the Ultimate Gravel. Race-ready, and down to shred.
The Litespeed Ultimate Gravel is an aerodynamic machine that climbs and descends with power and precision on the road, while absorbing all the roughest gravel trails out there for true comfort and control.

Peloton Magazine: Ultimate Gravel Review
"Before carbon took over, a debate about the best frame material enveloped the cycling world. Was it steel? After all it is real. How about alloy? Unfortunately, it was not yet at the level of quality we're seeing today. No, the "it" material was titanium and the "it" Ti builder was Litespeed, a company whose reputation precedes it.
Now, the cycling world is again undergoing a seismic shift, but this time, instead of from metal to carbon, it's from pavement to gravel — and titanium again has a place to shine."
