Well i've had the summer to ride the Suppresio and i love it. The ride quality is as stunning as the craftsmanship. It glides along the road with a zing that you don't get from carbon, aluminium or steel. I was worried the integrated seat-post might give a slightly unforgiving ride (especially with the very racy Arione R1) but nothing of the sort - i've been comfortable on it on century rides. I wasn't expecting it to be as quick as my carbon bike up the hills but my fastest times this summer have been on the Supressio (and i took it to France to do the Etape du Tour, as well). And of course, it looks stunning!

Just as feedback, I've been riding my Suppressio now for the last couple weeks and am very happy so far. Comparing to my 2015 S-Works Tarmac, which has very similar geometry and the same build spec, it is noticeably smoother and nearly as stiff and responsive - I suspect I'm losing a little power compared to the Tarmac (which is otherwise the best bike I've ever ridden), but I see each bike as suiting a different purpose - the Tarmac is a pure race bike, the Suppressio is one that can be raced well, but can also be ridden all day with style.
I built it with an Ultegra di2 groupset, and Enve 4.5 wheels.
Anyway, I'm very happy, and would highly recommend to others.

Ridden 600 miles on this bike now. After a few gear tweaks I am now starting to enjoy this bike. I can honestly say this bike is the smoothest bike I have owned. Road buzz is dramatically reduced yet still stiff and just as fast as my previous carbon bike.

I am very happy with the frame.
Compared to my other bikes (Look 695, Merckx aluminium), I think the Wittson is stiff and balanced. Very nice descending, not twitchy.
It is a large size and I am only 74kgs, so no flex in the bottom bracket or headset area, great for sprinting. I feel the road very well, feel well connected.
The finish is outstanding, good welds and quality feel to the frame. I have recommended a Wittson to a few friends.

There is a lot of discussion and speculation as to whether road bicycles should be disc equipped or not. We say it’s up to the rider. But if you want road race then it should be road race, not a relaxed geometry that is more reminiscent of touring bikes than road race bikes and is quite often offered by mass production brands. And this build shows exactly what we mean. It’s built using our road race geometry and equipped with CAMPAGNOLO Record groupset, hydraulic TRP brakes and an ENVE 3.4 Smart Clincher Disc wheelset. Our client wanted a road disc bicycle equipped with CAMPY and that’s the only option available on the market that looks and works just perfect.

Exclusivity, attention to detail, branding… Clearly the guys at Wittson have titanium flowing through their bodies, the professionalism and passion shown goes a long way to purchasing an expensive item such as this.. You can tell that Wittson put customer satisfaction as a top priority.
It’s always a worry when you can’t really test ride a bike properly before purchasing. Mindaugas spent considerable time and care going over my measurements that I provided to ensure the frame sizing would be correct…
Once they were happy that I had provided enough information, it was suggested that I would be perfect on one of the standard sizes they produce. They pushed me toward the M which was the correct decision… Left on my own, I may have gone for a large which would have been wrong… Sometimes you just have to put trust in others, that they know what they’re doing… I’m glad I did!
I cycled a fair amount when I was younger back in the eighties, I still have my first road bike my parents saved hard to purchase for me on my 14th birthday – a Raleigh Record Sprint 12… Alas motorbikes, cars, beer and girls came along and my TDF dreams of riding alongside Stephen Roche never materialised. After a recent early mid-life crisis of racing dirt bikes and trial bikes, where I kept getting hurt… and the responsibilities of family life, I packed this up and dug out the old Raleigh… followed this with a new Specialized bike, and got the cycling bug back again… I guess I’m fitter now than I’ve ever been when I was younger… With a successful bigger effort to cycle all through the winter this year on either the MTB or road bike, it was time to upgrade… the motorbikes that were collecting dust were sold and the money was to be used to purchase something worthwhile that would last like my old Raleigh… I had admired titanium bikes, and a recent chance ride on a friend’s Burls really got me thinking about a Ti build…
I probably spent far too much time searching the Internet instead of working, researching all I could, putting together a list of possibles …
A chance encounter with Wittson at the Bespoked show in London this year, where they proudly had their latest creation on display drawing lots of attention. Got my interest.
Some after coffee and cake, some more cake and lengthy discussions, and I had made my choice. The show was on for three days, I went back the following day with my geometry, and measurements from my previous fit and bike for Mindaugas to look over and check out the sizing, and spec up the size.
It’s not difficult to grab the bike and go for a ride, it looks amazing… understated, although this very fact ensures it draws attention when in the proximity of carbon bikes… It’s super smooth rolling over the poor road surfaces we have here. Notably more so than other bikes I have ridden recently.
We have lots of short sharp hills rather than really long accents, and I prefer to be out the saddle powering up and rolling over rather than grinding.
With the bike feeling stiff, light and quick… it steers really nicely and is reassuring at speed on turns.
After four five hours in saddle the bike still feels really comfortable, it’s a slightly more race orientated geometry, with a shorter head tube than my other bike, so it’s a testament to the frame geometry and having the perfect fit that I find it a pleasure to ride for long durations.
I’m really happy with the performance and look.
