This Team Wanty replica Litening C:68 SL is so fast on the climbs it'll make your eyes water, even if you're wearing shades. No, really. This ultralight and super stiff race machine will appeal to enthusiasts and died-in-the-wool racers alike. The frame comes perilously close to breaking the magic 850 gram barrier, while our choice of the finest components - including the entire 2017 Dura Ace Di2 groupset and Fulcrum wheelset - means there's practically no room for future upgrades.
If you want to be the best, there's no room for compromise. With the Litening C:68 SL frame they set out to achieve exceptionally low weight with the latest C:68 carbon technology, optimised frame tube shapes and our Advanced Twin Mould production process. But they didn't stop there - they also wanted to improve stiffness and comfort. The stretched geometry creates an incredibly efficient riding position for rapid forward progress, but keeps the handling agile. And their Litening C:68 fork combines the best possible comfort with incredible steering precision and very low weight.
Only the very best is good enough for the Litening C:68 SL. That's why we chose Shimano's fully integrated electronic Dura Ace group with 2x11 transmission - completely revised and updated for 2017 - driven through a 52/36 chainset.
Fulcrum's Racing 44 wheelset unleashes the bike's speed potential, while rider contact points - including the Ritchey Road WCS cockpit and a Selle Italia Flite saddle mounted on a carbon post - combine superb ergonomics and excellent comfort, even on the longest race stages.
Press Fit BB
With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows us to build a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
