Trisports is excited to add the 2011 Litespeed M1 SRAM Apex Road Bike to the 2011 line up. The M1 frame is built with a unidirectional monocoque carbon 3k weave. The box section bottom bracket delivers excellent power transfer while the shaped downtube adds a touch of aerodynamics. The M1 is built to be strong, fast and competitive at any level.


How does the bike actually ride? Comfortably, fast and stabile. If we take a look at the geometry chart below the first thing that stands out is the taller headtube which gives the rider a built in option to get the stem in a more up right position. On the other hand, an often over looked benefit of a taller headtube is that it makes it possible to run a 73 degree stem (parallel to the ground) which adds to the comfort level because the angle has a little bit more forgiveness when battling road vibration. Now if we start to look even deeper at the geometry chart we will notice that the the chainstays are longer along with the wheelbase and this my friends translates into an awesome bike to descend on. Longer wheelbases really help stabilize bikes at high speeds while adding comfort.

The M1 is spec'd with the NEW SRAM APEX components which is a long over due category of parts for road bikes. Compact cranks in combination with a 11-32 cassette all but eliminate any reason to consider a triple crank. Triples age poorly and are always in need of an adjustment. SRAM APEX is cleaner and more efficient. A double is all that is needed now.

The Litespeed M1 is packed with benefits. It has a smooth, comfortable, stabile yet surprisingly quick ride along with one of the most exciting component lines for the New Year.

Please note that the M1 is spec'd with a 12-26 cassette and you can call one our customer service representatives for changes.
