Lightning SE Tech Specs


The Lightning SE features triple butted Columbus Spirit steel frame tubing (see tech info from Columbus below). Each frame is hand tig welded and all aspects of the alignment are checked before any frame leaves the factory. The fork features carbon fiber blades, with an aluminum steerer.

There are two critical aspects of frame design: cockpit design (rider fit, where the rider connects to the bike and where these points are in relation to each other) and steering/handling. We design the frames here, in-house, to ensure the desired characteristics. The seat tube angle, top tube length, and stem height and length are the key elements to consider for correct rider fit. Then, for handling, stability, and agility are both considered—too stable and the steering is heavy; too quick and the bike is twitchy and more difficult to control, especially at slower speeds. Richard, our founder, designed the Lightning SE using traditional road racing geometry with tweaks for fixed gear riding.

Samples are built for stress testing on a machine. Wabi frames are built to the most rigid standard, the EN, the current European standard. This is your assurance of the quality and structural integrity of each Wabi Cycles frame.
