Titanium Road Bikes

Road bicycles represent the heart and soul of the cycling domain. Whether it's a child finding his first freedom on two wheels, or a pro-peloton making its way up the Col du Tourmalet, road cycling is where it all originates from. Modern road bikes are built for speed and agility, but also provide the long-distance comfort and wider tire clearance demanded by today's cyclists. Whether you're looking to surpass your personal best time on a local loop or you're riding long distance, there are countless road bike options to choose from. With top quality (i.e. durability) and versatility in mind, the list of worthy candidates significantly narrows, with the best titanium road bikes separating themselves from the pack.

Rider Feedback

You've really dialled it in on this bike. I've got a few hundred miles on it and it's just a rocket ship! Climbs like crazy and the handling on descents is razor sharp. It's comfy and stable, but racy and quick as hell when you want it. I've been doing this a long time and it is amongst the finest bicycles I've ever ridden. I think it's perfect.

I just wanted to let you know that I love my R3 Omni! Every time I come in from a ride, I tell my wife ”I can't believe I have a bike this good!“ On longer rides where I'm cruising along or when I'm doing interval rides and giving it the beans, it just feels great - responsive, stable, fluid. I can't imagine buying a carbon bike again after experiencing Ti. Just amazing.

The R3 Omni was stable at speed with predictable, forgiving manners in corners. The beefy chainstays offer good stiffness when stomping on the pedals.

R3 Omni Review
The bike rides like a dream — much like Columbus steel, but even more lively. It accelerates quickly even with marginally longer chain stays than the race version. Beautiful finish on the frame. It will be my go-to ride for many years.
Paul Saturley
Victoria, BC
Yielding the exact ride characteristics I had been looking for. I am finding the bike comfort level to be superior, have a tendency to ride quicker, and am riding with greater confidence.
Jim Krakowiak

Thank you for delivering a wonderful, unique bike. I can clearly see the work that has gone into the design and build and attention to detail. I have done a number of rides over the past few weeks and really have enjoyed riding the bike and can appreciate the merits of a titanium frame.

Thanks for the R3 Omni. I 'm really happy with it. It really is a quiver killer; it can do everything, and do it well. It's equally at home on a group ride at 40+ km/h as it is grinding out double track in the conversation area.
