Summary

Praemio R
TITANIUM ROAD FRAME
The ultimate titanium race bike.
The Praemio R is the ultimate titanium race bike that will indefinitely maintain its suppleness and ride quality. Made with the highest quality thin-wall straight-gauge 3AL-2.5V titanium tubing, the Praemio R is tough and virtually impossible to fatigue. Inspired by our best carbon bikes, we translated our high-tech carbon engineering to a traditional material to create an ultra responsive titanium race bike.

The Praemio R is built with Asymmetric Diameter Chainstays (ADC) with chainstay diameters of 22.2mm and 25.4mm, which increases stiffness by 30% and allows for better acceleration and handling, while the DWS provides a more compliant ride quality. Together the Praemio R is 23% stiffer in the bottom bracket than the Praemio, and is 18% stiffer in torsional stiffness.

Though optimized for stiffness, the Praemio R is not a punishing race bike. It is built with premium race features including an oversized Pressfit 30 bottom bracket shell, an oversized 44mm headtube, a 44.5mm down tube and an Enve tapered fork. The Praemio R is a powerhouse titanium bike that can take you to the top of the podium year after year.
