2021 Subrosa Letum Overview

Street riding can beat up a bike, so we built the Letum with a 100% chromoly frame, fork, and bars for durability. We’ve added a sprocket guard, 4 pegs with hub guards, and a freecoaster hub, so you’re ready to ride any spot you find. The Letum is also full of aftermarket products from The Shadow Conspiracy and Rant.
