Gravel riders: you've decided to get your taste for dirt aboard a Litespeed—congrats! So the next question is: what's the deal with Campagnolo's Ekar group, and what makes it so...well, bellissimo? We explain not only how Campy Ekar is one of the most in-demand groupsets in gravel, but that you can be rolling on your own Ekar-equipped Litespeed in just weeks. Yep-weeks. Read our Ekar primer.
To say that Michael Eichinger of Austria loves gravel is an understatement. Having ridden three different gravel models in Litespeed's range, he wanted to finally build and ride our newest gravel model, the Watia.
We build up trick bikes on a regular basis, but occasionally we build some no-holds-barred dream bikes. This Litespeed T1sl Disc is built with Shimano's new flagship Dura-Ace 9170 group with electronic shifting AND hydraulic disc brakes.
