Road Ti-r

Save the Rim Brake

The greatest gift is the present. This ride, this story, is about the moment you find it. And once you experience it, you spend every ride thereafter chasing that feeling. That clarity. It’s the moment that your heartbeat, breath and pedals are in concert, and your ride becomes a symphony of flow.

Sure, calling it ‘spiritual’ may be overplayed. But this moment? When your mind is this…free. It’s hard to call it anything else. You are flying without friction.

This is Meditation at Speed

2024 Best Race Bike Winner

"Noted as a puristic, high-quality titanium frame, excitingly equipped and, not least, honored by the jury as an aesthetic statement, the Blackheart Road Ti wins gold at Cyclingworld Europe 2024." – Rennrad News

Modern aesthetic

A gently sloping top tube and dropped seat stays bring titanium design into the 21st century.

Aero design

Our custom kammtail downtube, one-piece carbon cockpit, fully integrated cables, and electronic only design make it slippery where it matters.

(disc brake version shown)

Magic ride

Premium 3/2.5 double-butted titanium tubing and dropped, slightly curved seatstays deliver a smooth yet snappy ride.

(disc brake version shown)

Forever material

Titanium is more durable than carbon fiber, will never rust or corrode, and is highly recyclable if the time comes.
