Alchemy Arion Carbon – ROAD
Two-time winner of the “Best Carbon Bike” award at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS), the Arion cheats the wind and the laws of physics.
Built by hand, Arion begins with Alchemy’s made-in-house, NACA-inspired aero tubes. Each tube is laid-up to order, then masterfully integrated with its mates to meet the individual demands of each rider.
Contemporary aero bikes deliver riders flat-line speed, typically at the expense of comfort and handling. Alchemy finds that compromise unacceptable. Arion is fast – of that there’s no doubt. But it also carves corners with abandon and provides a surprisingly supple, sophisticated and comfortable ride.
Arion comes in one speed; fast. The rest is up to you.
