2017 Alchemy Xanthus

The Alchemy Xanthus has a classic design that utilizes modern production methods for the perfect balance between weight, stiffness, and comfort. Like all Alchemy frames, the Xanthus is made in the USA and is completely customizable for each rider.

The Xanthus shares the same stock geometry as the Helios and Arion, but uses round tubes and a proprietary carbon lay up that provides a balanced ride for all cyclists. The round tubing delivers a neutral ride quality that strikes a perfect blend of quick handling with comfort and durability.

There are five stock sizes to choose from, or Alchemy can create a custom frame just for you. By assessing each person’s riding style, terrain, personal goals, and physiology Alchemy can handcraft a frame for each individual rider.

The frame uses a mix of tubing made either in house by Alchemy, or provided by Enve that is renowned for their high end carbon fiber components. The Xanthus frame is built off of a PressFit 86 bottom bracket for excellent power transfer and an Enve fork to keep the front end feeling stable and light.

Along with custom geometry, Alchemy has a specific DNA for each of their frames that can be tweaked for each rider’s personal preference. Each part of the frame is assigned a number based on the stiffness and you can either lower or raise that number depending on how you want the frame to feel.

Each Xanthus is unique for each rider and has endless amount of options to make the frame your own.
