Curtis RaceLite

A true piece of Curtis history, refined...

The Curtis RaceLite is our brand new version of the classic RaceLite frame and it is very special indeed.

The RaceLite is now made from Reynolds 853 air-hardened and double-butted tubing for the front end, and Columbus for the rear stays. Many months of design and prototype testing with team rider Ash Brown have gone into producing this baby of ours.

It has a super-short 14.9″ chainstay length which allows you to manual with ease, and gives the bike an unbelievable snap out of the gate. We have also slackened the head-angle to 67° which makes it feel amazingly stable, whilst also making it super grippy in the corners allowing the rider to corner like the bike is on rails.

To say we are pleased with the way this frame handles would be an understatement indeed!
