2017 Alchemy Arion
The 2017 Arion. Customization at its Best
Alchemy designs, engineers, and hand-crafts every frame in house in their Denver, Colorado headquarters. This process gives Alchemy the control over every aspect of the build from inception to completion. Every bike starts out as an NACA inspired aero tube and every tube is handcrafted to order. This involvement allows Alchemy to offer a level of customization unheard of in other manufactures.
Not only can you customize the geometry of the frame, but you can also tune 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.
Engineered to perfection, the Arion achieves the delicate balance between handling, comfort, and durability and is the two-time winner of the Best Carbon Bike at the 2012 and 2013 North American Handmade Bicycle Show.
The Arion is designed for those riders looking for every aerodynamic advantage. The frame’s joints are hand wrapped and cured at high-pressure to create a truly seamless structure. The Arion’s design is aerodynamic to its core, with its tubes shaped where they most encounter the wind. The bottom bracket has been widened to enhance stiffness. This bike is made for performance! And the Arion is handcrafted with only one objective: your satisfaction. Fast is its foundation, you decide the rest.
