2015 Litespeed T1
The Litespeed T1 is the most technologically advanced metal bike ever created. The 2015 T1 is matchless; formerly the Archon, this frame has re-written industry expectations of a metal bike’s capabilities and ride quality. The Litespeed T1 features a Press-Fit 30 bottom bracket, proprietary 6Al/4V and 3Al/2.5V titanium blend, oversized head tube for more fork-tuning capability, and showcase-quality welds.
Titanium has unique ride qualities that only become evident as the material is attended to, cold-worked, and shaped. And, at the core, that’s the fundamental difference due to the shaping at tube and size levels to ensure the best possible ride. This bike has a radically shaped tob tube for maximum stiffness, asymmetric, double-butted chainstay, proprietary WRAP technology at the junction to create the ultimate in performance. Throughout the frame, you’ll find oversized, shape-specific tube designs that are the pinnacle of thoughtful engineering. The ride quality and responsiveness are the result of hand-crafted USA manufacturing and care.
