2016 LITESPEED CI2 BIKE | ULTEGRA DI2
Even in a peloton, aero is important. Litespeed has been preaching that mantra for years with our C-Series bikes. Add electronic shifting, and the Ci2 leaves absolutely no “free speed” on the table.
The Ci2 offers the full suite of aerodynamic frame features from our flagship C1R: An AeroLogic ride-tuned tubeset, aero seat post, and an aerodynamically shrouded water bottle mount. Even the head tube height is optimized to cheat the wind - because we can shape it for speed, unlike a stack of stem spacers.
Our AeroLogic technology uses carefully designed tube shapes and cross sections to minimize wind resistance and maintain stability at high speeds. Compared to a standard road bike, the C-Series frame reduces the power (watts) needed to maintain a given speed by more than 16% across all yaw angles.
What’s inside matters, too: The Ci2 is formed with Litespeed’s Reactive Pressure Molding (RPM) construction. RPM eliminates extra material inside the frame, increasing stiffness and durability while reducing weight.
Spec’d with Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting, there’s no question this bike is fast. The only question is, can your riding buddies keep up?
