The Montreal-based T-Lab Bikes has unveiled the latest version of its R3 Omni road bike, boasting greater performance and versatility thanks to revised tube shapes, new wishbone seatstays and increased tire clearance.
“This bike was developed with any-road performance in mind,” said Rob Rossi, Co-Founder of T-Lab. “With the new R3 Omni, we’ve dialed-up what no limits means for today’s road cyclist.”
“The R3 Omni was redesigned from top-to-bottom, starting with a more shapely top tube that combines with a new T-Bone seat stay design to boost overall torsional stiffness. The result: even better responsiveness and out-of-saddle climbing,” he adds.
Other improvements that punctuate the updated R3 Omni include a more streamlined head tube and down tube junction, along with a stiffer, yet sleeker, carbon fork. Moreover, as mentioned, clearance has also been increased, which can now accommodate tires up to a hefty 35mm in a relatively compact, nimble frame configuration.
“Whether on the tarmac, cobblestone or dirt, this bike was made to be fast while providing the long-distance comfort and ride quality titanium is renowned for,” says Rossi.
Like every T-Lab, the R3 Omni frame features unique, radically shaped titanium tube profiles that are cold-worked to deliver up to 30% more lateral rigidity than conventional round tube Ti bikes.
Best, each frame is completely manufactured in-house based on the customer’s specifications, with a lead time of only 6 to 8 weeks.
“A good titanium road bike is made to last a long time,” says Rossi. “As such, we built-in as much capability into the R3 Omni as possible, making it the one and only road bike you’ll ever need.”
Pricing for the R3 Omni starts at $3,975 for a frameset, with complete builds available from $5.475.
