Achieving the frame’s strength requires a unique manufacturing process. The R460 begins life as sheets of 6AL/4V aerospace titanium alloy – the best of the best. From here, the 6AL/4V sheets are rolled into tubing and seam welded together by Lynskey. These newly-formed tubes create the R460’s front triangle known as the Super Tube. This process ultimately gives the R460 its incredible stiffness for ultimate power transfer on the road.
For the R460 frame, we’ve incorporated a tapered, integrated head tube for confident handling and a clean design. Further down the bike, the over-sized Press Fit 30 bottom bracket offers silky smooth pedaling for the most powerful of riders, as well as durability for years to come. Additionally, Helix-shaped seatstays resist vertical flexing for optimum sprinting and climbing. With the R460’s race performance and long-lasting durability, it is a top Lynskey Performance bike.
