Is this the world's lightest bike?

Everti Eagle weighs just 11.4lb – and costs almost $10,000

Everti Titanium Bicycles claim they have created the world's lightest production road bike – the Eagle, which weighs just 11.4lb (5.17kg).

The company, based in British Columbia, Canada, say they have spent a year refining the design and spec, and product testing to ensure everything will stand up to real-world riding.

According to Everti: "The only limitations of this bike are the legs that are going to be pushing the pedals."

However, they add: "Many of the components on this bike are designed for riders under 200lb so we feel it is best to suggest a rider weight limit of around 180lb to keep everything well within the manufacturer's warranties."

The Eagle frame consists of a double butted 3/2.5 front triangle mated to a straight gauge rear triangle. It comes with a 25-year warranty.

Component highlights include SRAM Red shifters and derailleurs, Zipp cranks and bars, Extralite hubs and stem, Edge Composites rims, Tufo S3 215 tyres, KCNC cassette and brakes, Ritchey WCS seatpost and fork, and Selle Italia SLR saddle. RRP is $9,995 (approx £6,865).
