Here is the latest information that we received from Titus regarding their 2008 line of mountain bikes.
New profile to the Racer X Aluminum and Motolite Aluminum top tube saving weight adding an aesthetic appeal and further optimizing the ride based on the axial shaping of the tube.
RACER X and MOTOLITE 2 made in the USA, the two high-end aluminum frames were brought back the United States for manufacturing, partnering with SAPA in Oregon we were able to get the performance we wanted and further improve our production processes. Now we can have all of our frames in production at once through the best manufacturing partners in the industry SAPA in Portland, OR and Kinesis in Taiwan.
The complete frames are still manufactured by Kinesis and all of the tolerances are better than ever, the additional manufacturing partner will improve delivery times and mean more regularity to inventory receipts.
New color schemes and additional complete package option, the Motolite Complete gets a complete new graphics package with three color blocking and a new more aggressive logo.
