2017 Alchemy Balius

Alchemy brings their masterful carbon craftsmanship to cyclocross with the customizable Balius.

Alchemy produces their own carbon fiber tubing in Denver, Colorado, giving them the unique ability to maintain total control over each and every frame they produce. They wanted to offer a cross bike that will perform under any circumstance and for a variety of different riders.

The Balius is offered in five stock sizes, but can also be designed with complete custom geometry for riders of all shapes and 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.

Alchemy uses a tube to tube construction method and then the junctions are wrapped with carbon fiber. The Balius uses the same aero shaping for the top tube and down tube as the Helios, resulting in a stiff front end with quick handling that rewards nimble cross riders.
