A new breed of titanium . Utilising 6/4 titanium forming and shaping techniques that were only possible with the new association with NASA/JPL. Litespeed needed to create a stiffer head tube and BB whilst maintaining compliance and comfort expected from a titanium frame. The head tube junction shows an increase service area of 45% enabling a "Wrap" type hold from the head tube and down tube.The bi-lateral seat stays and unique non symmetrical shaping give added stiffnes to the greater loading non drive side. No titanium bike has stiffnes to wiehgt ratio that comes anywhere near this level. Stiffnes to compliance that offers an enduring ride.
