The Liteville H-3 MK1

The 301 designed as a hardtail mountain bike. It is as versatile and variable as our legendary Liteville 301; it is our unmistakable reaction to the demand for a classic mountain bike with genuine Liteville genes.
The Liteville H-3 MK1 is available only as a frameset.

TEST RESULT

The magazine MountainBIKE has had a closer look at the all-new Liteville H-3 built as a B+ hardtail in its 2/2016 edition.
…and so eventually, it almost receives the best possible ranking in our test, yet only almost. The reason is simple: the Liteville H-3 without any doubt is a superior bike, however not for every type of rider. The distinct handling of the hardtail is one reason, which is the result of the low front of the bike. In switchback corners, for instance, it requires a strong hand, yet thereafter, it boasts with extraordinary precision. Despite its overall length, a manual or Bunny Hop is no challenge whatsoever and even in jumps and up in the air, it reacts calculably at all times. On top of this, the bike is able to deeply impress in tough downhill riding: when common hardtail bikes are no longer controllable, the H-3 copes with whatever you through at it.

Put in a nutshell: Boom! With its H-3, Liteville succeeds in inventing a new dimension for hardtail riding. Downhill, it performs almost on the level of an All Mountain full suspension bike, while uphill, it comes up to the expectations one has looking at a hardtail – despite its shallow geometry and its wide balloon tires."

HIGHLIGHTS

Direct Mount

The Liteville H-3 MK1 can be built with 2-speed front derailleurs with High Direct Mount Standard that are directly screwed on the frame. We recommend 1-speed or 2-speed cranksets with a 52 mm “Boost” chain line.

EVO6

The Liteville H-3 MK1 already features the pioneering Syntace EVO6 rear frame. We keep following the technically superior path in the right direction.

Brake tabs

The Postmount brake caliper socket for 180 mm disks of the Liteville H-3 is placed between the seat stay and the chain stay. This makes the rear frame even more durable and stiffer. The brake hose is inside the frame, which adds to a tidied up, clean appearance.

Cable Routing

In order to achieve a most straightforward, clean appearance of the frame, the shifting cables, the brake hoses and the hose for the adjustable hydraulic seat post are inside the frame tubes.

FRAME SIZES/ SCALED SIZING

The correct frame size influences the performance of the entire bike. Yet it is not only the frame size that is to fit the rider, but also the wheel size. That is why our frames, depending on the frame size and the body height of the rider can be built with different wheel sizes (26”, 27.5” and 29”) and are thus perfectly adapted to the rider’s individual expectations.
Depending on the frame size, these are our wheel size recommendations:
Frame size S
Rear 26” or 27.5” / Front 26” or 27.5”
Frame size M
Rear 26” or 27.5” / Front 27.5” or 29”
Frame size L
Rear 26” or 27.5” / Front 27.5” or 29”
Frame size XL
Rear 26” or 27.5” / Front 27.5” or 29”

GEOMETRY

Because of the different setup possibilities, there is a large number of different geometry combinations and it is not possible to display these in a traditional geometry table. This is why we have developed a geometry generator which will give you the exact geometry of your preferred setup.

Liteville Custom Color

You want your H-3 to be painted individually, yet you are not sure about the exact color scheme? This is where the Liteville color configurator comes into play: based upon a Liteville 301 frameset, you may now choose between 100 RAL colors and evaluate, how your choice harmonizes with painted rims or forks. The color configurator is an Adobe Flash Application and is thus not available for Apple iPads and iPhones.
