Designed for everyone from competitive track racers to hard core urban commuters, the singlespeed Langster™ is an icon for pure and ruthless efficiency and unforgiving speed. If one of our A1 Premium Aluminum models isn't enough to satisfy those in search of their perfect track missile, maybe our new steel Langster with classic track geometry will do the trick.
WHAT Smooth-welded frame made from our
highest grade alloy—E5 Aerotec—featuring
compact track geometry, integrated
headset, and fully manipulated tubing
(Pro frameset only). Same as last year’s
WHY To create a super stiff and light racing frame
specifically designed to handle the unique
rigors of track riding.
HOW As our strongest and highest grade alloy,
E5 Aerotec allows the most aggressive
butting, so we can shave weight without
sacrificing frame strength, stiffness, or
durability. Fully manipulating the tubing
lets us create aggressive track geometry
and make the frame stiffer and more
aerodynamic for sprinting performance
and off-the-front efforts.
“Flip/Flop” Rear Hub
WHAT Reversible rear hub with fixed gear
on one side and freewheel thread
on the other.
WHY Gives riders more versatility, while keeping
HOW Wheel comes with single fixed cog on one
side of the rear hub and bolt-on (with track
axle nut) freewheel on the other. Rider can
choose cog size and simply flip the wheel
to switch between fixed gear and
singlespeed. Both cogs can be changed
for different gearing options.
WHAT Three different frame options—two
alloy versions and one steel—with
geometry specifically dialed for the
individual ride experience.
WHY To provide riders with the optimal
combination of stiffness, compliance, and
rider positioning based on how and where
the bike will be ridden.
HOW The track race-focused Pro E5 frame
features steeper head/seat tubes and
shorter chainstays to increase stiffness for
better responsiveness and acceleration.
The A1 Premium Aluminum and Reynolds
steel frames are a bit slacker to increase
compliance for a better feel when riding on
the road, and the steel frame’s straight top
tube makes the ride even more forgiving.
