Swift Carbon Intros Lightweight Ultravox Ti Road, TT Bike Too

Swift Carbon Ultravox Ti Frameset Main Complete

Swift Carbon just dropped a couple new bikes – the Ultravox Ti road, and Neurogen for TT and Tri.

The Ultravox Ti shown above features an 840g frameset with internal routing, tapered headtubes with a PFBB30 bb. This model’s a step up from Swift Carbon’s 930g Ultravox road frameset released last season. Built up, the Ultravox Ti gets 2013 SRAM Red, Ritchey WCS bars and stem, and Swift Trillium carbon clinchers. The complete bike weighs in at 5.83kg, 12.9lb. There’s no pricing on the complete, but the MSRP on the frameset is $2,999.

There’s no paint, just a clear coat finish that adds 37g to the weight.

Swift Carbon Neurogen TT Triathlon Complete

The Neurogen is the new TT/Tri bike, weighing in just under 7.7kg (17lb). It gets a long 160mm head tube for max aero, aero brakes, and an integrated head tube and fork. Complete, the Neurogen will have 2013 Sram Red or Shimano Di-2 groupset with 3T Ventus bars. It’ll roll on Swift Carbon’s Hemoglobin wheelset (that’s a gnarly name). There’s no pricing yet, but we’ll keep you updated.

I would have thought the Ultravox Ti would be made of Titanium. Is this really the right name? That frameset definitely doesn’t look like any kind of titanium bike I’ve ever seen.

The “TI” stands for Team Issue, actually.
This is a full carbon frameset. No titanium anywhere ;)
