L1-2013 OVERVIEW

2014 L1 Dura Ace

L1 Introduction

Loaded with industry-leading frame and material knowledge, the Litespeed L1 is ready to perform right out of the box. The race-ready Shimano/Zipp/Easton component mix combines with Litespeed's premier process technology and historic ride-tuning to create a finely tuned, all-around racer. It took four years to nail the L1's multiple asymmetric and shape-specific design using Litespeed's own Continuous Cross-Sectional Morphology and incorporate state-of-the-art features including BB 386 bottom bracket, 1.125" x 1.5" tapered steerer fork, and Zero-Stack headset system. Litespeed's Quadrilateral System manages simultaneous torsional-frontal and lateral-load input from both road and rider, while asymmetric down tube/seat tube junction allows for efficient drivetrain energy transfer. Recently granted UCI- approval, the L1 is proof that you shouldn't rush perfection.
