T - Lab R3
Our engineering team was given a simple but monumental challenge: create a titanium road frame that delivers the performance characteristics of one made of high-end composites. Their initial response was to take a step back; they proceeded to push forward with technical innovation at all levels. Beginning with the development of a proprietary forming technology that allows us to precisely shape seamless, Grade 9 titanium tubing into a unique frame profile that produces 30% more stiffness, with no weight disadvantage, versus leading titanium bikes. The drive to break new ground permeates the R3 completely, from the beautifully weight-optimized, fully integrated headtube design to the proprietary and fully adaptable T-ONE dropout system. Put it all together, and what you get is the most advanced titanium road bike ever made.
