2020 Litespeed T5

If you are wondering what this whole Gran Fondo business is about, and why bikes are being marketed to appeal to this previously unheard of thing, rest assured it is just a handy way for us to say that the Litespeed T5 is a seriously comfortable bike, capable of keeping you company through long days in the saddle, while remaining nippy enough to help you win the group ride sprint to the town sign. And of course, if you have ambitions to do the GFNY or the Jensie Gran Fondo or any of the many other Fondos popping up around the country, then this is just the type of bike to make that effort fun and worthwhile.

Though the T5 receives all the same attention to detail that the other Litespeeds get, like a cold-worked 3AL/2.5V top tube for enhanced ride quality, what it does do a little differently is the geometry. This is where the long hours in the saddle will be accounted for: the T5 builds feature a 2-3 cm taller stack than the race ready T1, so you will be about to sit a touch more upright. It won’t prevent you from getting properly aero when the situation calls for it, but you just won’t have to strain your neck and back in a racing position when you really want to be able to sit comfortably for multiple hours in the saddle. And the 44mm oversized head tube will offer precision handling with just enough feedback from the road to feel in complete control. Then the mega and bi-axial ovalized downtube works together with the oversized, tapered top tube to offer great performance with lateral stiffness.

Tire clearance has been optimized for 25mm tires which will also offer the most aero setup on most rims, which will make a big difference the longer your rides get. Internal cable routing and compatibility with electric and mechanical groupsets will help you find that perfect finishing kit for your ideal ride. The Litespeed T5 titanium endurance bike will help you enjoy your rides more by absorbing road chatter and convince you there is no greater happiness than riding a bike you love.
