Hand producing titanium bicycles in Chattanooga USA since 1987, Litespeed’s expertise of titanium fabrication led to a collaboration with NASA’s jet propulsion lab to produce the landing gear for the Mars rover “Curiosity.”
Today Litespeed has 100% hand made production in the USA, with dealers urged to look out for the flagship T1 high-performance road racing model and the gravel ready Cherohala, complete with rack and fender mounts.
Brand manager Andy Notley said: “We are proud to be working with Litespeed Titanium and offering such a prestigious brand in the UK. Litespeed is renowned for its lightweight performance and quality. Everything they do is consumer focused and being a truly handmade in the USA product we feel really sets them apart.”
Windwave will add Litespeed to its existing portfolio of A2Z, BBB, Colnago, Dainese, DVO, Fantic Bikes, FSA, Hutchinson, Ice Toolz, Morgan Blue, Nokon Transition Bikes and Vision.
