Litespeed Blade / Triathlon/ Time Trial frameset

Litespeed Blade

EUROBIKE AWARD 2008

The new Litespeed Blade titanium frameset uses our revolutionary ‘RBSF” (Radial-break Sheet Forming) developed for NASA. The Blade's top tube wraps the head tube using a simultaneous welding & forming process.
A new titanium forming process developed through a joint-venture with Lockheed Martin have pushed the manipulation of titanium to a new level, as have enabled us to use RBSF technology to produce the most aerodynamic UCI-legal titanium frame available.

The Blade can be produced in custom sizing to ensure the rider is in the correct ergonomic position to optimize power output.
