Gran Fondo geometry for all day comfort marries all-weather, all-condition braking confidence rain or shine.
All T5 builds feature a 2-3 cm taller stack than their T1 and the 44 mm head tube handles the latest in tapered-steerer fork technology. A beautifully machined rear flat mount eliminates the need for a brake bridge on the seatstays making this disc specific frameset lighter in weight, but not strength. The drop out design is E-Thru compatible for high rigidity and increased rear end performace. Oversized and bi-axial ovalized downtube for maximum performance/stiffness. The oversized, tapered Top tube in combination with the 44mm oversized and T5 level butted head tube is designed for precise handling. Litespeed designed Carbon tapered flat mount disc 12mm thru axle fork with a 142x12mm rear thru axle with tire clearance optimized for 25C tires (most tires on most rims) comes standard. The T5 disc is stiff enough to respond to the peloton yet maintains the ability to dissapate road vibrations with the addictive ride quality of titanium. All Day Long.
