Mons Superlite Caliper
The original Tifosi Mons was first unveiled in 2017 as the lightest production bike in the world. It is truly something special and gathered the attention of news outlets worldwide. The new model pushes the technicity of the design a step further.
This launch was also the start of a successful partnership between Tifosi and multi award-winning painters, Cole Coatings of London. For 2019, Tifosi and Cole Coatings unveil another masterpiece.
The Mons originally started as a sketchbook project of Joshua Lambert, Tifosi’s technical specialist. The bike became a skunkworks project where the team could experiment with the limits of their designs and their production partners’ capability.
The frame was endlessly tweaked and redesigned, and the end result was a bike weighing 4.61kg – the Mons was a true milestone for Tifosi.
The Mons frame weighs in at 780g and is produced predominantly from T1000 and T800 carbon fibre. Using Computational Fluid Dynamics, the stresses in the frame can be assessed to be as low weight as possible without compromising on power transfer or handling.
The flattened stays aid comfort whilst the reinforced chain stays ensure no loss of power. The frame uses truncated aero tube profiles which offer a much more aerodynamic ride but matched with complete comfort. With tyres up to 25mm it’s happy climbing, Sportive riding or racing, a true all-rounder in every sense of the word.
