2016 Litespeed L1R Frameset
2016 LITESPEED L1R 60T CARBON FRAMESET
The L-series flagship, the Litespeed L1R, is all about refined stiffness, minimal flexibility, maximum power transfer, along with amazing ride-quality thanks to our rigorous R&D process. At the front of the frame, the proprietary Quadrilateral System, the head tube, top tube/down tube junction, creates a box shape that resists braking forces and flex. The canted-in tubing in this same area maximizes torsional (twisting) stiffness for precision and confidence-inspiring handling. The beefy BB386 design allows the incorporation of larger chainstays, seat tube and downtube for zero flex and increased power transfer. Additional features such as internal Di2-compatiblity (routing) and UCI-approval round out a bike worthy of the Litespeed name.
The frame is composed of industry-leading 60T carbon manipulated by Litespeed's Reactive Pressure Molding (RPM) technology. Additionally, the L1R gets the most out of its carbon tubing with multiple asymmetric and shape-specific design features thanks to Litespeed's Continuous Cross-Sectional Morphology. And, you won't find each frame pieced together with stock sized tubes-each model and size has size-specific tubing.
