Spitfire is our classic race bike with the muscular whip spring speed, floated ride and lifetime looks that only hand built triple butted 3Al/2.5V titanium can deliver. Powered by carbon enhanced SRAM, rolling on classy Italian designed wheels and available with full contact point customisation.

Description

Professionally proven compact road geometry maximises the low weight, tactile grip and powerful acceleration surge of the subtly shaped and triple butted 3Al/2.5V tubeset. Tapered rear stays and superlight Selcof Delta SL curved blade, carbon monocoque forks skim over rough roads to keep you fresh all day. Sub 1500g frame, 375g fork and stripped down rim brake build create a carbon competitive weight for attacking the climbs. Short, relaxed angle headtube lets you get head down for hunting on the flat but won't flutter or freak out when you're carving corners on a technical descent.

Titanium always brings a whole different level of lifetime good looks and practical toughness. We've enhanced that with a forged head badge, laser etched logos and D-Day tribute 'invasion stripes' to make sure our Spitfire looks as timelessly classic as it's namesake.

Shimano Ultegra 8000 is the latest version of Shimanos brilliant benchmark groupset. Featherlight fingertip shifting of 22 wide range gears for the steepest climbs. Rich all weather control from the powerful 160mm disc brakes for the longest descents. Legendary Japanese quality for day in day out, year after year efficiency and enjoyment. Complete Shimano groupset with no cut corners on chain or cassette.

Basically it's the beautifully cultured and charismatically responsive, stripped for speed, lifetime classy, sunny day speed bike you've always wanted for a price that's impossible to resist./p>
