Why Litespeed Ti?
The reasons are legendary. The material of choice for lunar missions, aircraft, and more, titanium is heralded for its remarkable qualities. Titanium is lighter than steel, and won’t rust or corrode. It’s the perfect travel companion—easy to pack, difficult for baggage handlers to damage, easy to repair.
But it’s titanium’s inherent materials capabilities that make it the finest material in bicycles. It has the ability to absorb road shock better than carbon fiber. That means less hand and overall body fatigue when you’re out on the long ride. With less fatigue, you can ride longer, recover faster, and perform at your best. It also won’t degrade under tough conditions. Mud and sand scrubbing along the frame in the heat of race action won’t ruin your frame as it can with carbon or other materials.
But a Litespeed is a step beyond. Our ability to shape our tubes, weld them from flat sheets into a tubeset, and handcraft small parts from our dropouts to our scalloped headtubes and bottom brackets—are all done for performance enhancement. And it’s all achieved at a level unmatched by any other titanium manufacturer simply welding round tubes. Our mastery over the material makes Litespeed the best-riding, best-performing titanium bike available—period.
