2017 Alchemy Chiron
Everyone has a favorite: some are carbon fans, others prefer steel, but the titanium fans are perhaps the most adamant and loyal crowd. Titanium has a unique ride quality unmatched by any other material. The only way to know it is to ride it. The Chiron is a Ti cyclocross frame that is handmade in Alchemy’s Denver, Colorado headquarters.
Alchemy uses 3a/2.5v titanium tubing that is strong enough to hold up against any amount of abuse while offering first in class performance. Adding to the beauty and functionality of the Chiron are the S bends on the seat and chainstays to add more compliance over rough terrain.
The Chiron follows the guidelines set up by the American Welding Society. This means the weld is flesh with the joint, no concave or convex welds and no undercutting. What you get is a premium titanium frame that you will be proud to own.
Alchemy gives you the option of having the geometry customized or choosing one of five stock sizes. You also have the option of tuning what Alchemy refers to as the “Ride DNA” of the frame. Each section of the frame is isolated and you can determine how stiff or compliant you want each part of the bike to feel, allowing you total control of the ride frame’s ride quality. This is YOUR bike with no compromises.
