T5 Endurance Road

Gran Fondo Geometry for Day-long Comfort and Performance

Long-distance comfort, control and quickness.

Welcome to the Litespeed T5 frame, the definition of true endurance road. A deft blend of geometric artistry blends with the natural comfort that titanium brings, coming together in the ride you’ve always wanted: full-day comfort in a frame created for fun, epic days in the saddle.

The centerpiece of the T5 frame exists in its geometry, with a front-end stack that’s two to three centimeters taller than our T1sl. While that raised stack rise is minimal, it’s a game changer in your ride experience, placing you in a less aggressive riding position that takes forward-load pressure off your shoulders and neck. The result allows you to stay comfortable in the saddle—especially during the late miles of those long, epic fondo days you’re craving.

Never mind the fact that the frame naturally delivers comfort; our titanium tubesets still maintain that natural ability to dissipate even the roughest road vibrations, helping keep your hands, arms and upper body fresh, late in the ride.

Make no mistake, though; the T5 is certainly no weekend cruiser. Taking cues from the T1sl, The T5 frame has all the critical performance-focused features, including an oversized and bi-axially shaped downtube that maximizes torsional stiffness and performance; when you jump on the pedals to crest a climb or close a gap, the T5 jumps with you.

It carves through curves as sharply as any of our road rides as well, courtesy of an oversized 44mm headtube with our latest tapered steerer fork technology. Pair it with an oversized, tapered top tube and you have the recipe for a ride that delivers precision handling through the curves.

While the ride of a T5 will always be memorable, be sure to make your own T5 frame memorable as well. Our team in Tennessee is capable of making your T5 yours, in every way. From decals to complimentary etching treatment to custom paint, Di2-specific builds or a T47 bottom bracket upgrade, even rack and fender mount requests, at an added charge and with extra lead time, we can make your T5 truly yours, in every way imaginable. Just give us a call and we’ll set it in motion.

The T5: Quick, light, comfortable and driven to perform. After even the longest gran fondos, it will leave you begging for more.
