AeroLogic is not just another decal on the frame. It represents multiple years of thoughtful planning and development. During the summer of 2010, Litespeed's C-series aero road design was tested and validated in Charlotte's A2 wind tunnel. Furthermore, recent articles in mainstream magazines such as Triathlete Magazine have further confirmed that so-called Aero road bikes display a significant aerodynamic advantage over their non-aero, round tube counterparts.
The bottom line is this-according to our time in the A2 wind tunnel, the styling of the C-series reduces the average aero wattage by over 20 watts, as compared to a standard, non-aero bike. That is a 16% advantage across all yaw angles. That translates into a huge savings in rider energy solely based on frame design.
That is the aerodynamic equivalent of adding an expensive, aero race wheel set. Minus the cost, of course...
Now that is AeroLogic.
RPM allows us to precisely control the internal structure and wall thickness of the carbon frame during manufacture. This advanced process allows designs elements far beyond what can be accomplished with conventional bladder molding. Unique features such as an all-carbon head tube, compatible with the most precise ZS style press fit headsets, as well the multitude of AeroLogic aerodynamic elements are incorporated without the need of solid, permanent components and unwanted filler materials. The result is higher performance with no weight penalty plus additional benefits of improved strength, impact resistance, and stiffness.
Not content to withhold cutting-edge technology from our lower-end carbon road models, RPM is used on the complete Archon C-series, from the C1R flagship to the C3 Ultegra model.
Litespeed takes the highest quality titanium available and makes it better. While our competition settles for softer, more easily worked grades, we go above and beyond to deliver the most premium cold-worked, cycling-specific tubesets in the world.
