Custom Litespeed T1sl / Ultimate Gravel
An aerodynamic, vertically compliant, dirt road speed demon with room for 45mm* tires. The Ultimate G.
The Ultimate was first introduced as Litespeed's premier 3AL/2.5V race bike in 1987. A USPRO National Championship, many professional stage wins, and even a Road World Championship were amassed on Litespeed's then flagship, Ultimate.
In the spirit of what The Ultimate represents for the brand, Litespeed engineered a completely new bike. However, it truly wasn’t all we could claim to offer until we proved our metal on gravel. All the cool kids are doing it and we’ve just raised the bar in top level grit and grime performance.
Race bike agility, pack stability, climbs and descends with ease, and yes, aerodynamics - the Ultimate do-it-all gravel bike. We’ve even added vertical compliance using tubular, aero, titanium tubes as subtle springs.
The innovative T1sl top tube is created from a single sheet of 6AL/4V titanium to make a unique multi-faceted tapered tube that reduces weight and increases stiffness. Oversized and bi-axial ovalized downtube provides next level performance and stiffness.
