German-based AX-lightness is known for crazy-light boutique bikes and components, occupying one of the few spots in the ‘ultra halo’ crowd. Their latest introduction is a limited edition of their ax VIAL evo road bike, dubbed the Race LTD. With gorgeous red accents and only TEN ever made, this might be the coolest bike that you can never own.

AX-lightness is no stranger to super-light parts, making a host of wheels, components, and complete bikes. Their newest complete bike is a limited edition of the existing VIAL evo, a 700 gram frame that builds up to a 4.9kg complete bike with SRAM Red eTap (pre-AXS design). Despite the weight, they advertise it as a true race-capable bike, with real-world stiffness and handling.
The LTD build is finished out with AX-Lightness wheels, Continental GP5000 tires, and even custom red handlebars and saddle. Want one? With only ten ever made, you better act quickly.
The ax VIAL evo Race LTD is available only as a rim-brake-equipped complete bike. Further details on the bike are slim at this time, with their release only being published on the AX-lightness Facebook page. No official MSRP has been released, but don’t expect it to be cheap, as it’s the most exclusive build from the handmade German brand. We’re also calling out Bikerumor.com readers – if you buy one of these, submit it for our Pic of the Day!
