Advanced engineering pushes the limits of stiffness-to-weight in an everlasting frame. The result is the T-LAB R3, the titanium road bike of tomorrow, available right now.

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.

KEY FEATURES

Image

Shapely down tube profile maximizes power transfer while providing an ideal pedaling and steering platform.

Image

Uniquely profiled top tube offers superior lateral rigidity and responsiveness.

Image

Proprietary, one-piece, T-ONE dropout system offers an exponential advantage with regards to stiffness; provides exceptional durability and more precise shifting.
