Description

Titanium has a well-earned reputation as a wonder material. No other metal can match it for strength-to-weight ratio and no carbon frame can beat it for durability and ride feel. It blends the handling feel of the best steel bikes with the low weight and efficiency of carbon. Titanium bikes always stand out from the crowd with looks and longevity that are peerless at any price; with cast pewter head badge and subtle brushed 'Invasion Stripe' detailing the Spitfire is no exception. Everyone should have at least one titanium road bike in their collection.

Designed by master frame builder Mark Reilly, the Spitfire was created first and foremost as a competitive road machine. It offers predictable handling with a moderately aggressive riding position that will be instantly familiar to anyone who's spent time aboard our EC-130E Aero Road bike. The Spitfire's rear triangle features ovalized and tapered frame tubes that provide subtle vertical compliance. Triple butted, ovalized seat and down tubes mate to a 68mm bottom bracket shell to provide a firm, responsive pedaling platform.

With an oversized head tube offering maximum steering precision we've paired the Spitfire frame up with your choice of either our Superlight Selcof Delta SL curved blade, monocoque fork, or our Selcof Strada SL straight blade fork. Designed to offer a touch of shock absorbing compliance these high performance forks are the perfect match to the Spitfire, together they offer striking performance with a welcome touch of comfort and incredible low weight.

Groupset: SRAM Force 11, provides lightening quick gear shifts the moment the impulse takes you. Gear changes are crisp with SRAM Force - and a pure pleasure. SRAM's Yaw-equipped front mech provides flawless shifting between rings without ever needing to be trimmed. Its well known that SRAM groupsets weigh significantly less than the competition, and with carbon levers, crank arms and rear derailleur cage, Force 11 is no exception.

Wheelset: FSA Vision team 35 Semi Aero The latest semi aero wheels from Vision push performance to the limit with a 35mm deep rim profile, bladed aero spokes from Sapim and meticulously constructed, 11-speed cartridge bearing hubs. Their good looks are every bit as striking and their wind cheating performance thanks to their deep anodised rim treatment, radially laced front wheel and straight pull laced rear hub.

If you're hunting for a new road bike but find that modern carbon bikes leave you cold, spread your wings and give the Spitfire a try.
