The bike you've always wanted

You just don't realise it yet.

Lightning X is the best road bike we make, and one of the best bikes in the world. A bold claim for sure, but one we can back up. The fact is, we've saved up and bought enough top-end race bikes over the last 30-40 years to have learnt a thing or two about what makes a bike special. It's pretty much the same things that make a race car feel completely different from even the fastest street car. It's about the confidence that derives from being at one with your bike. The perfect man-machine harmony.

The X surprises all who ride one the first time. We point out the short and steep geometry which flies in the face of current race bike conventional thinking. So you'd expect a bike that's a handfull: nervous and unpredictable. But what you find out on the road is the opposite: X is direct and super quick for sure, but with poise and sure-footed handling that is probably best described as telepathic. All this quickly translates into pure speed and supreme confidence in your ride. 

Think of the X as the Speed Metal racer with the attitude and handling of a ground attack fighter jet and you won't be far off target.

Lightning Quick
In our world, a fast bike must look fast even at a standstill. It's a design criteria. The X doesn't disappoint and looks quick even leaning up against the pre-ride cafe window. It rides like no other race bike. The super subtle sloping main triangle is engineered for maximum performance. It's fabricated with superlight, oversized, thin-wall top and down tubes that achieve their strength and torsional stiffness thanks to our most advanced geometrical tube profiling. The 3D head is meticulously machined inside and out from probably the most over-specified, over-engineered thick-walled tube in the bike industry. The short wheelbase and tight geometry look old-school. But the result is a bike that's seriously race light with handling and ride that has to be experienced to be believed.

X has all the stiffness you need, whether winning elite races or hammer down full gas on the Sunday club bash. But it suffers from none of the stiffness that you really don't need: road buzz & shock are filtered out, leaving you fresher than the competition when it counts. At the finish line!

Lightning Strike
The Lightning X is crafted entirely from our stiffest, lightest, race-tuned 3Al2.5V Ti Mk III tube set with unique type-X geometrical enhancements. The steeper head & seat angles, shorter stays and raised bottom bracket position are mapped onto size-specific race-biased road geometries. Fabricated entirely by hand, finished with our fanatical attention to detail and packed with features and characteristics that have evolved through a lifetime of riding. All designed with one goal in mind: to enhance the form, the function and the pleasure of ownership.
