AX-Lightness Releases New Frame – The Vial
With carbon monocoque construction, the frame itself comes in at 745g. The full frameset (including the tapered 3T Rigida Fork and Engage Revit seatpost) weighs in at 1203g by my calculation. The asymmetrical rear stays, when coupled with the rectangular frame cross sections, promises for “direct and exact forward energy.” The Vial frameset is scheduled for release in March of 2012. Along with this blue and black paint job, AX-Lightness is also known for their crazy custom paint jobs at Eurobike.

The pricing on the Vial is 4900 Euros, which at current exchange is 6444 USD.
