Both founded in Great Britain in 1948 and known within their respective industries for their attention
to detail and lightweight performance products, Lotus and Condor are steeped in heritage and racing
history, shaped by medals, honours and World Championship titles.
Twenty years after gold medal success in Barcelona and on the eve of both
companies 65th year, Lotus and Condor have partnered to celebrate their rich
history and work together to create speed through lightness and push the
future of performance further. Two bicycles have been created in collaboration
to mark the start of an on-going project that uses the knowledge of both
companies in their fields to redefine what is known about speed on two wheels.
Each bicycle has been assembled by hand in our London workshop with the same attention to detail that we give all of our builds. Each bicycle can be viewed in our London showroom and at Lotus store on Regents St. We are able to post anywhere in the UK for £30 (POA for international delivery).
The Type 1 LC Racing combines comfort with function, blending sophisticated, high quality materials with precise attention to details and superb craftsmanship.
