SPEEDER LITE FRAME
Lightweight 6066 triple butted and hydroformed aluminium frame with smooth welding and internal cable routing. Complete with mudguard and rack mounts.
We use 6066 series aluminium, the highest level generally used in bike production. Its metallic composition allows it to be extensively hydroformed (a process of forcing a hot emulsion of water and oil through tubes in a negative mould). This allows us to vary wall thicknesses and tune the frame to be both strong where it is needed and flexible where required.
We feature internal cable routing on all models. Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. Only a clever system for our internal guiding and fixing guarantees reliable and rattle free routing, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt and gives the bike a cleaner look.
All SPEEDERs are equipped with hydraulic disc brakes for powerful, easy to modulate and consistent all-weather stopping power.
All models are equipped with a full carbon tapered fork. Carbon has great vibration absorbing properties in addition to being lightweight, so ride quality is improved. The carbon tapered steerer provides great stiffness to the front end of the bike, delivering precise and confidence inspiring handling.
SPEEDERs share their genetic make-up with our former RIDE comfort geometry. The combination of a long head tube and shorter top tube provides a more relaxed seating position.
