Swift set out to make a frame that retained the ride quality, stiffness and handling of their previous Ultravox chassis but in an altogether lighter package. The claimed figures are impressive – a size small frame is said to tip the scales at under 900g. Swift have even dropped paint in favour of a semi-matte clear coat complete with minimal graphics. The result is a finish that holds a weight penalty of just 37g.
Power transfer and efficiency is what the Ti is all about, and Swift’s use of large box-section tubing, a press-fit BB30 shell and asymmetric seat tube and chainstays show it means business. As you’d expect, it’s also fully UCI approved.
This bike is built using Shimano components and lightweight Mavic wheels
