Steel

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.

design

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.

Details

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.

N+1 Lightning RE built uo into nice road bike!

"Have always appreciated Wabi's products and customer service ethos. Have rolled on a pair of Wabi's wheels for years and finally ordered one of the road frames. Just finished building it up with Ultegra groupset, fsa bars, zipp stem and thomson seatpost. Very happy with the wabi after a couple of training rides. Lovely springy road feel as per classic steel but almost as light as a couple of my carbon bikes. Nice touches like internal routing for rear brake cable and ""cinelli"" style seatpost binder. Already thinking about another one."

Having primarily ridden carbon race

"Having primarily ridden carbon race bikes the last 5 years, the Lightning RE was a breathe of fresh air. The Columbus tubing gives it a ride quality second to none. Buttery smooth and incredibly light, the frame still gives you a solid platform when you need to get up and go. Also hands down my favorite paint job on a bike that I've owned - it wouldn't be out of place in a Formula One pit!"
