Everti Ti: World’s Lightest Production Road Bike
Claiming to be the World’s Lightest Production Road Bike, Everti has released the Eagle. Ã‚Â 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. Ã‚Â You know, things you like to have on a bike. Ã‚Â Some of the lightest bikes floating around out there cut out some of those amenities.
In a BikeBiz article, Everti Bicycles owner Kurt KnockÃ‚Â 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. Ã‚Â 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. Ã‚Â It has a 25 year warranty!
Sooo…as with any bike, the frame can only contribute so much to the diet. Ã‚Â Wanna see how this bike is spec’d? Ã‚Â 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. Ã‚Â 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? Ã‚Â A surprisingly low $9,995 USD. Ã‚Â Why do I say this is low? Ã‚Â 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. Ã‚Â Ridiculous.
As my wife put it: “Some girls’ purses weigh more than this.”
