From the Manufacturer

European frame builder Vidmantas “Vitas” Zukauskas is mostly known for his cooperation with Colnago and building frames such as Monotitan, Ovaltitan, Ovalmaster, Master BiTitan, CT1, etc. After Colnago quit with titanium and moved on to Asia and carbon frame production, Vitas continued to specialize in ti frame building for other brands, including Argon18, Red Bull, Van Tuyl, etc.

Over time, Vitas has become more and more well known as a master in ti frame building with worldwide orders from cyclists that value craftsmanship. His son has become involved in ti frame building and they have embarked on a new journey with Wittson. These are bespoke tailor-made frames built to last a lifetime.

Wittson plans to launch a new website in the beginning of 2014, meanwhile this is the first custom built model featuring their latest achievements in ti manufacturing:

  • Cyclocross disc frame
  • Oversized headtube for conical 1.5″ fork
  • Integrated seatpost with an support on toptube/seatstays cross section
  • Ti seatmast
  • Integrated disc cable routing
  • Integrated shifting cable routing
  • PressFit BB86
  • Bullet chainstays
  • PARAGON low mount dropouts
  • Ti bolts

All of the frames are made of European Grade 9 Ti supplied by a Swedish company called VSMPO Titan Scandinavia. And by custom made, they mean custom made – like custom tubing, custom geometry, custom design, welds, finish (all from scratch) and many options such as any Paragon dropouts, cable routing, mounts and fittings, S&S couplers, and any type of headset or bottom bracket. Moreover, it’s even possible to order as a complete built kit.

And lastly, the best thing is that all of these tailor-made frames carry a lifetime warranty and can be shipped worldwide in just thirty days.
