The RSL is all the good stuff you’ve ever heard about titanium frames: It’s supple, it’s lively, it floats up climbs and flows down descents. The handling is neutral, almost vanilla but slightly to the stable side—just where I like it for my fast, homestate Colorado mountain descents. The frame stiffness when climbing out of the saddle and cornering is great—not equal to the best carbon bikes, but much greater than you’d expect—and the bike remains smooth. It’s totally raceable, and great for casual weekend rides too. Plus, it’s beautifully made. I love the etched and engraved finish: the perfect tough and long-lasting graphic treatment for a tough and long-lasting material.—Matt Phillips

THIS BIKE REMINDED ME OF ONE OF THE SMART- EST THINGS I’VE EVER HEARD ABOUT BICYCLE DESIGN: IT’S ABOUT GETTING THE RIDER IN THE RIGHT PLACE BETWEEN THE WHEELS. IT HAD THAT MYSTERIOUS IF NOT MAGICAL COMBINATION THAT LET ME SIT IN THE BIKE INSTEAD OF ON IT, THAT REMOVED THE DIVIDE BETWEEN MY ASK AND THE BIKE’S ANSWER (AND THE BIKE’S ASKS AND MY ANSWERS, TOO).—BILL STRICKLAND
