2017 Alchemy Helios
100% made in house in Denver CO, the Helios is a high quality, customizable road bike that is designed for all riders in search of a fast, race-oriented, do-it-all frame.
The Alchemy Helios is the descendant of the round-tube carbon fiber Xanthus and the extreme aerodynamic Arion. This is a carbon fiber bike that is aerodynamic, durable, and lightweight. With its breakneck potential and custom hand-built frame, the Helios appeals to every cyclist, from the casual weekend rider to the serious racer.
This frame has an aero top tube, rounded seat tube, and a flared shaped down tube to increase torsional rigidity and aid in lightning fast acceleration. Like the Arion, the Helios is designed for speed, efficiency, and handling. The Alchemy Helios is your all rounder that is great for crits, long race days, and gran fondos.
The construction of the Helios is tube to tube, with carbon wrapped junctions. This makes for a strong frame that will last even under the most aggressive riders. The bottom bracket is an oversized PressFit 86 to also increase stiffness in the frame and the cables are routed internally for a neat and tidy look. These are all great features but the main reason people return to Alchemy is their dedication to customization. Their desire for to make each bike their own.
You have 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.
