Wittson titanium 29er bicycle Bestia 001

Have you ever wondered how light a titanium 29er can be? Wittson has partnered with German carbon specialists AX-Lightness to answer your question at the annual North American Handmade Bicycle Show taking place on February 26th-28th. If you are looking for the lightest carbon components on the market, there’s no compromise – AX-Lightness is No 1. The company based in Bavaria creates wonders out of carbon fiber, whether its for Formula 1 or bicycles. This project is based on the Bestia 29er frame and the Nulla custom rigid titanium fork, with the total weight a stunning 7.8 kg! This is the only model that Wittson offers as standard and the specs sound really impressive: a frame with an integrated seatmast, conical headtube, integrated shifting and disc cable routing, bi-ovalized toptube, hydroformed curved downtube, hydroformed seat and chainstays, PressFit 30 bottom bracket, made in USA Paragon x Syntace X-12 dropouts, etc. Of course, you can always modify this beauty by changing the geometry, removing the integrated seatpost, choosing a different type of headset or bottom bracket or building it with a Pinion gearbox, and the list goes on… Just open your mind and create your dream machine, one that will be with you for life, carrying a lifetime warranty. As always, pictures speak better than a hundred words.
