Litespeed Pinhoti XT


Litespeed Pinhoti


The perfect titanium hardtail mountain bike.

Named after the rugged trail system in Georgia, the Pinhoti SL is the perfect titanium hardtail.

As trail systems continue to flourish and evolve, so do the bikes. The pure essence and ride quality of a titanium hardtail continue to set the gold standard for high performance cross country and trail riders abroad. As we define the perfect Ti hardtail, we too resist the ‘new standard of the week’ the bike industry seems to cram down our throats. However, some make perfect sense and we’ve responded. Stiffness requirement of the frame and wheels goes up with the added footprint and decrease in tire pressure.

Our engineers and trail gurus have optimized tube selection and build spec for a 27.5+ ti hardtail. The additional cush and bite have been coupled with the perfect amount of titanium stiffness. Slippery rooted climbs and wet, rocky descents are less of a challenge and more of a transition to your next section of flow. Loosen your grip and power down.

The perfect titanium hardtail now with the advantage of BOOST. A wider axle allows for a wider hub flange and stronger spoke bracing angle giving you stiffness and stability for precise handling and traction control.

The Pinhoti has amazing vertical compliance with perfect torsional rigidity. Compact rear-center and shorter wheelbase create an agile platform for quick and responsive handling. Elevated seat stays yield more support and stability for a balanced center. The compact rear-center and shorter wheelbase create an agile platform that handles like a mountain bike should: Quick and responsive when you’re working the pedals, stable and centered when things get rough.

A 12x148mm thru-axle help us eliminate side-to-side flex, while allowing us to fine-tune the seat- and chainstays for an efficient, forgiving ride. A PF30 bottom bracket shell is compatible with almost any crankset (30mm or 24mm spindles), and also accommodates eccentric bottom brackets. This lets riders easily tweak their BB height, or set up the Pinhoti up as a singlespeed.
