This frameset includes a titanium frame with black decals, Lynskey #2 Carbon Road Fork, and a Cane Creek 40 Headset.
The R480 is the strongest/stiffest bike we offer, but still encompasses the ride quality that only a titanium bike can give.
Achieving the frame’s strength requires a unique manufacturing process - expertly perfected by our experienced craftsmen. The R480 begins life as sheets of 6AL/4V aerospace titanium alloy - the best of the best. From here, the alloy sheets are rolled into tubing and seam welded together by Lynskey. These newly-formed tubes create the R480’s front triangle. This process ultimately gives the R480 its incredible stiffness for ultimate power transfer on the road.
For the R480 frame, we’ve incorporated a tapered, integrated head tube for confident handling and a clean design. Additionally, Helix-shaped seatstays resist vertical flexing for optimum sprinting and climbing.
- Electronic shifting ready
- Internal cable routing on top tube
- Tapered Headtube compatible with any carbon tapered steerer tube fork for more responsive handling
- Race-tuned 6AL/4V diamond shaped top tube is engineered for the pinnacle of performance and durability
- Race-tuned 6AL/4V diamond shaped down tube for ultimate stiffness and stability
- Helix shaped seatstays resist vertical forces to enhance sprinting and climbing
- Race leading geometry allows for aggressive position, excellent stability and precise handling
- Stiff and lightweight
- Replaceable rear hanger dropout (allows easy replacement of rear derailleur hanger should damage occur)
