About this project
Undistracted Pleasure. This is what SpeedX Leopard is all about. Riding is an activity that touches people’s mind. Riders want to be integrated with the bike, in each own rhythm, in fluency, without distraction. Leopard is ready to give the rider the ultimate road experience.
Built with aesthetics and performance in mind.The Leopard will surpass your every riding need: whether for intense training and competition or a Sunday spin with friends, it offers unparalleled comfort and enjoyment.
More than a year ago we set ourselves an incredible mission. We wanted to combine carbon fiber and technology in a bike in an aerodynamic way like never done before. After 1560 sketches, 12 different prototypes and one year of our time we present you: The SpeedX Leopard.
Imagine a bike with a brain – taking care of everything except the cycling. That’s just what we made SpeedX Smart Control to do. It records your ride data and provides you with professional analysis in real-time with its built-in 2.4” inch screen. We designed XCoach specifically to prepare professional training courses – with interesting tasks and challenges, as well as global ranking tables.
- RECORDS 12 TYPES OF CYCLING DATA
Connect with SpeedX Smart Control with any ANT+ compatible device. Our bike has built-in sensors, we measure your performance based on the following 12 points:
- 800KM ULTRA-LONG BATTERY LIFE
With our innovative low-power GPS system our Smart Control can track and record your data for up to 800km or 40 hours. It only takes up to 30 minutes for a full charge.
Together with FIBERTEK®, we developed proprietary methods and technologies to stack the T1000 military-grade carbon fiber. Every bike frame stacks 207 folded layers, which ultimately leads to a phenomenally light 1.2kg frame. It weighs in at a mere half of a normal bike, thanks to its carbon-fiber frame, front fork, and seat post.
We knew the SpeedX frame just had to use single-piece technology for better stress distribution performance. Our efforts were rewarded with front-fork comfort that beats many of the world’s leading bike frames.We subject a new bike to nearly 300 production and testing processes, including stiffness testing on key frame parts to ensure the bike’s stiffness.
We’ve improved both aesthetics and performance by cleverly hiding the brake cables in the front fork, reducing air resistance and maximising style.
SpeedX is the third bicycle brand in the world to achieve full-integrated wiring. The other two bicycles with full-integrated wiring cost considerably more - $5999 (TREK Madone 9.2) and $8200 (Specialized Venge Pro ViAS).
After more than eight months of prototyping the brakes, we found that the most aerodynamic way is putting the brakes behind the front fork.
The Leopard boasts a simple, sleek look, matched only by the excellence of its riding experience. We thought long and hard about our choice of a race-ready SHIMANO 105 drivetrain, TRP fully internal brakes and a T1000 carbon fiber frame, front fork and seatpost.
The Leopard will surpass your every riding need: whether for intense training and competition or a Sunday spin with friends, it offers unparalleled comfort and enjoyment.
We believe in our bike and you should too. We offer lifetime replacement warranty for the bikeframe. Ride in more comfort knowing that we that we have your back!
Every SpeedX customer enjoys a 7 days-no-questions-asked return and 30 days free exchange. Ride in even more comfort knowing that the SpeedX comes with a lifetime frame replacement guarantee.
we’ve created a unique Smart Bike Fitting System to provide every rider with the best possible bike-fit. Just take a photo and upload it – the Smart Bike Fitting System will do the rest for you, automatically selecting the most suitable model, frame, handle bars and stem. Everything can be handled by the SpeedX Smart Bike Fitting System – no more worrying about which size is right for you.

Our team of more than 50 people from all different backgrounds have one thing in common: we love cycling.
SpeedX is setting out to become a global smart-sport brand through design and first-class technology. It is SpeedX goal to offer all customers a brand new way of performing sports. Through the advanced technology of combining hardware and software, SpeedX is transforming the old way of riding a bicycle to a new and modern activity.
Risks and challenges
The current design for SpeedX Leopard have been finalized and the initial prototype has been built. We’ve already laid out our future production plan and already talked about this with our partner in manufacturing in China. During designing the initial prototype, we already spent some months working together with our partners.
In all matters we will always keep an open communication to our backers and update you frequently.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
