Litespeed is a devout bicycle technology company that prides itself on their titanium tube technology and carbon reactive pressure molding. In fact, their frames are so intensely tech-heavy that they were selected to build the tubular chassis for NASA’s Mars Rover, the Curiosity. Featuring a robust line of road bikes, mountain bikes, and a particularly desirable cyclocross bike frameset called the 2013 CX, Litespeed Bicycles takes the technology of aerodynamics and superior frame quality seriously. That’s because they purposely incorporate aerodynamic elements into their frame designs that results in a 16% advantageous increase of aerodynamics over all angles of their bicycles, which means that rider energy is increased proportionately simply based on the aerodynamics of the bike frame. Litespeed bicycles’ titanium tube tech results in increased performance and durability, as is found on with their Pisgah and Sewanee mountain bikes, while their carbon reactive pressure molding tube tech results in extreme frame stiffness and lightweight, nimble handling, as is so on their C1R road bike frame.
