Litespeed uses only aerospace-grade titanium alloys. The most pure raw materials (titanium, aluminum and vanadium) go into the ingot, and only the best ingot is qualified to be made into seamless tubing. The ingot is then machined, drawn, and pilgered to the tightest tolerances of any material in the cycling industry. Litespeed purchases this premium titanium with the highest certification of its mechanical, chemical, and physical properties. We selectively use 6Al/4V titanium (a stronger, stiffer alloy) in our higher end models as well as 3Al/2.5V for the perfect ride quality, every time.
Every tube in every Litespeed titanium bike serves a purpose, and you won’t find any tube that hasn’t been shaped accordingly. No other company has mastered shape, size, and thickness manipulation - while applying properly sized variations of each tube throughout the design of your bike - the way Litespeed has.
