Claiming to be the World’s Lightest Production Road Bike, Everti has released the Eagle. Weighing just 5.17kg (11.4 lbs) for a size Medium complete bike, it’s spec’d responsibly and completely…in other words, it has a complete gear range, full bar tape and a padded seat. You know, things you like to have on a bike. Some of the lightest bikes floating around out there cut out some of those amenities.
In a BikeBiz article, Everti Bicycles owner Kurt Knock had this to say: “We have spent the past year refining the details and product testing to ensure everything will stand up to real-world riding. The only limitations of this bike are teh legs that are going to be pushing the pedals.”
The frame is 3/2.5 double butted titanium front triangle with straight gauge tubing in the rear triangle. It has a 25 year warranty!
Sooo…as with any bike, the frame can only contribute so much to the diet. Wanna see how this bike is spec’d? Hit “more”…
The top tube is a 32mm diameter bi-axial ovalized tube and the down tube is a 40mm diameter multi-shaped bi-axial tube shape. Here’s how it’s built:
- SRAM RED group
- Zipp Vuma Quad Cranks (580g)
- Zipp Handlebar (I’m guessing the SL Bar – 170g)
- Custom Edge Composites Wheels
- Tufo Tires
- KCNC brakes (82g each)
- KCNC cassette (guessing at this from the color… 103g for 11-23T)
- Extralite Stem (81g – 90g, 90mm – 120mm)
- Ritchey WCS fork and seatpost
- FSA Headset (looks like the Orbit 1 – 54.3g)
Everti claims the frame is up for any size and style rider, but that some of the components have a 200lb (91kg) rider weight limit.
So what does 11.4lbs of envy inducing bike cost you? A surprisingly low $9,995 USD. Why do I say this is low? Because a Trek Madone 6.9 Pro will set you back $9,130 and it probably weighs at least 3 lbs more than the Eagle. Ridiculous.
As my wife put it: “Some girls’ purses weigh more than this.”
