X-LITE TEAM / RACE
ON THE PULSE OF TIME
This is our fastest bike, a racing machine par excellence, a true high fyer – the X-LITE TEAM. The frame tips the scales at a dream weight of only 795 grams. It has an elegant appearance with a saddle clamp that is integrated into the top tube and offers outstanding stiffness values. This bike is a synonym for road racing – uncompromising, ultra-light and ultra-fast. Uncompromising is also the right word for our newly developed carbon fork. Weighing just about 290 grams, it is one of the lightest mass-produced forks in the world. Made from 140 carbon layers laid lovingly and skillfully by hand, it provides highest lateral stiffness and excellent comfort. The X-LITE TEAM is packed with racing skills and is the result of thousands of testing hours spent in the saddle – the TOUR magazine 03/2015 and 03/2016 crowned the X-LITE TEAM-8800 CUSTOM as the undisputed test winner. It thrills pros and amateurs alike with its performance potential which seems to have no limits. But beware: With this bike there will be no more excuses!
X-LITE TEAM – live cycle racing.
The X-LITE TEAM-3000 marks the entry into the X-LITE TEAM family and does not only come with an ultra-light frame, but also with top-class components. Here you can find all the big labels. The shifting systems comes from Shimano and bears the name Ultegra 6800. It features a beautiful, hollow forged aluminium crank that offers high stiffness. Regarding the chainrings, you can choose between 52/36, 53/39 and compact with 50/34 teeth in the configurator – according to your wishes, without any extra charge. The moderate Ritchey WCS cockpit with an Evo Curve handlebar is accompanied by Mavic Ksyrium Pro SL WTS wheels. A lightweight (1355 grams) that provides good acceleration values. That’s how you can turn the top racer X-LITE TEAM-3000 into your personal top racer!
A bike for professional use – at a favourable price. The X-LITE TEAM-3100 Di2 not only stands out for an extremely lightweight frame, but also for an electronic rear derailleur. Experts and skilled riders appreciate the incomparable shifting comfort Shimano’s Ultegra Di2 6870 offers. It shifts precisely, quickly moves the chain from one sprocket to the other and works extremely accurately. Gear changes can be individually programmed; tech geeks and individualists can adjust the system to their heart’s content. The high-quality Mavic Ksyrium Pro WTS wheels are equipped with Zicral spokes for high stiffness and a low weight as well as with matching Mavic Yksion Pro tyres. The so-called WTS system (Wheel-Tyre System) promises a perfect interaction of wheel and tyre.
The X-LITE TEAM-4000 is our highly emotional rational bike – full of state-of-the-art technology at a very reasonable price. The proven High Modulus Aerospace Carbon Fibre T40/60 frame is equipped with Shimano’s gem Dura-Ace 9100 – a congenial relationship with incredible performance. With this groupset, Shimano follows the "Rider Tuned" concept and offers a huge range of different gear ratios. This super package needs a super cockpit by the company Ritchey. Matching the Ritchey WCS C220 stem, the cockpit also features a Ritchey Superlogic Carbon Evo Curve handlebar. This extremely lightweight drop bar is reliably stable thanks to its exclusive monocoque construction. The ergonomic handlebar top offers a perfect grip which primarily proves advantageous on long climbs.
The X-LITE TEAM-4100 Di2 takes its rider into a new dimension of shifting: The gears hardly make any noise when changed precisely and lightning-fast. Moreover, the Di2 drivetrain can be adjusted according to the individual preferences with the help of a software. When choosing a high-end shifting system, the hardware should be of high quality, too. That’s why we have equipped the X-LITE TEAM-4100 Di2 with exclusive Ritchey carbon parts. The Ritchey cockpit including a Ritchey WCS C220 stem and an ergonomic Ritchey Superlogic Carbon Evo Curve handlebar is just as impressive as the Ritchey Superlogic Carbon Monolink FlexLogic seat post. And so the Dutch Fiets magazine had no reason to complain in its issue 7/2015: “Honestly, the Rose is a great bike. Nothing has to be done here. It’s hard to find any weaknesses.”
A thoroughbred competitive bike with great parts – the X-LITE TEAM-4400 already cuts a fine figure on paper! It is specced with a great group, the SRAM Force, that impresses with functionality and a low weight. The rear derailleur in particular is extremely lightweight while also impressing with precise, crisp shifting process and the new AeroGlide pulleys for quiet running. As the name already suggests, the brake levers in ErgoDynamics design are ergonomically designed and offer sophisticated lever reach adjustment. The beautiful Ritchey WCS cockpit is lightweight, well-finished and well-designed. The ergonomic Evo Curve handlebar offers comfort and prevents your hands from becoming numb. The Ksyrium Pro SL WTS wheels by Mavic stand out for good acceleration values. With a weight of 1355 grams, they are a real lightweight and fits in perfectly with the sporty character of the X-LITE TEAM-4400.
Light, lighter, X-LITE TEAM-8800! The bike weighs less than 6000 grams and yet offers best racing performance! The basis for this low weight is a High Modulus Aerospace Carbon Fibre T40/60 frame built with H.O.C. technology. It weighs less than 800 grams and yet is extremely stiff. Let’s talk about the components, let’s talk about SRAM. The Red 22 group presents itself as a tool for pros. Its functionality and design are unparalleled. Ergonomic, lightweight and almost noiseless – and the Yaw technology allows for trim-free shifting in any gear combination! The handlebar-stem combination consisting of Ritchey Superlogic Carbon Evo Curve handlebar and WCS C220 stem are also part of the bike’s professional appearance. The Tour magazine 03/2015 honoured the X-LITE TEAM-8800 CUSTOM as a clear test winner with an excellent rating (1,2) in a test of ultra-light top models: “A lightweight with great riding stability and a sensational fork. A moderate price, equipped for everyday use. Top comfort on saddle and handlebar.”
Our high-performance powerhouse in a wireless version! The same specs as our racer X-LITE TEAM-8800 – except for a little detail that makes a huge difference: This bike comes with SRAM’s new eTap shifting system! This system does not require any cables, wireless is the motto! A completely new switching logic has been implemented, inspired by Formel 1 racing cars. The idea: The right lever shifts up gears, the left one shifts down. The front derailleur is controlled with both levers. Shifting into the wrong gear is almost impossible once you have become familiar with this new system. The shifting process is precise, fast and quite, you’ll discover completely new dimensions. Tested by pro riders on more than 500.000 kilometres, in races and in most adverse weather conditions – professional shifting technology especially for you!
