The R440 is made for the power rider who pushes huge watts and has a tendency to flex, over-stress and break everything. Acceleration, braking, climbing and descending…the R440 does it all. This frame is made for the rider that excels in crits and competitive road racing that wants stiffness and performance first and foremost.
Each frame is hand-built in Tennessee and incorporates 6al-4v titanium in the tubeset. To further enhance the performance of the R440, we have incorporated our Helix Technology to the seatstays to add even more stiffness to the rear triangle. We have also added an oversized headtube to create incredibly stiff and responsive handling. These features, coupled with our race pace geometry, which allows for a more aggressive and powerful position, more podium visits are sure to follow. When the aerospace and defense industries need the best ratios of strength, stiffness and durability, they use “6-4 titanium”.
