Wabi Lightning - 49cm without Bottle Mounts

Wabi Lightning - 49cm without Bottle Mounts

We have a limited number of 49cm Lightning Builds with frames without bottle mounts. We are offering $125 off these builds. 

At 18 lbs, the Lightning (formerly known as the Lightning SE) is a bike that changes the steel fixed gear game. It's the perfect combination of characteristics—light and fast but with that great ride of super light steel. 

The Lightning is our flagship model with one of the lightest steel frame and carbon fork combinations on the market.

Our new Spring colors, Pearl Black and Race Red, have arrived while we still have some limited size options in Pearl Orange and Midnight Blue.

We use Reynolds 725 and Columbus Spirit. These higher quality grades of steel allows us to use less of it, so you get a lighter, more responsive frame.

E.D Coating

Our steel frames are E.D. coated to act as a rust preventative and a primer. This high-performance rust inhibitor is applied inside the frame and out.


Wabi frames are road-designed with upright angles, and short wheelbases, which creates comfort, efficiency, and predictable handling. Our road frame design gives you an agile and fast ride.


We love the detail of our frames. You'll find cast-brazed dropouts, machined head tubes, brazed seatpost collars, bottle cage eyelets, and brazed forks.
