Description

Spitfire is a classic race bike with the muscular whip spring speed, floated ride and lifetime looks that only hand built titanium can deliver. 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.

Groupset: Shimano Ultegra 8000 Shimano's Ultegra group is the perfect performance to price sweet spot, with seamless featherlight shifting and outstanding durability.

Wheelset: FSA Vision Team 35 SL Comp Semi Aero   Vision's 35mm deep rim profile and bladed Sapim spokes are aero enough to drop drag, without disturbing the Spitfire's impeccable handling and silk smooth ride quality however windy or rough the road gets. Anodised rims with semi radial spoking keep them inspiringly light and good looking and there's room for 27mm tyres too.

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.
