Arion | Carbon Aero Road
Two-time winner of the "Best Carbon Bike" at the 2012 and 2013 North American Handmade Bicycle Show, the Arion Road is the one that cheats physics and sends you up front for a podium finish. Each custom-built bike starts out as handcrafted, carbon fiber tubes, which have been formed according to the rider's unique measurements, as well as desired ride qualities. The frame's joints are then hand-wrapped and cured at high-pressure to create a seamless structure. "Comfort" and "performance" are no longer defined by the manufacturer but rather expressed by each rider and, since no two riders are alike, the Arion is handcrafted with only one objective: you. Fast is its foundation, you decide the rest.
Boreas | Carbon Fiber Time Trial
When speed is your goal, this is your bike. The Boreas's individually-tailored geometry and tube set, inspired by NACA airfoils, will ensure optimal power transfer while dodging the wind. To achieve this, the Boreas merges the proven wind-cutting aerodynamics of the Arion aerofoil with a time trial geometry without sacrificing ride quality. Since each tube is engineered around the rider's measurements and desired ride qualities, we have the ability to fine-tune compliance, stiffness and geometry on a per customer basis for ultimate customization. Own the time trial with a racing bike hand-built to help you perform at your best.
Helios | Carbon Fiber Road
The Helios bridges the gap between our light, round-tube carbon fiber Xanthus and our extreme, aerodynamic Arion. In addition to an aero top tube and round seat tube, we've added a shaped down tube, which is flared at both the head tube and bottom bracket junctions to increase torsional rigidity and aid lightning fast acceleration. The Helios is a progressive all-rounder suited for fast, criterium-style races, as well as long, cerebral climbs.
For a lighter option without sacrificing integrity we offer the Helios SL. A size 54cm frame weighs in at only 790 grams. Same strength and structure as the Helios, but you will feel the weight difference as you pass your friends on every climb.
Xanthus | Carbon Road
Carbon fiber is the ultimate material for customizing a frame to a rider’s needs. Alchemy can engineer a carbon fiber bike to be an extension of any sort of riding style, from a racing bike for performance to a hobby bike for transportation. Our proprietary lamination schedule and tube shapes will achieve that delicate balance between handling, comfort and durability. By assessing your riding environment, style, physiology and goals we are able to create a hand built bicycle that will have exceptional lateral stiffness (efficiency) with vertical compliance (comfort). Carbon fiber is the ultimate custom material and Alchemy has the technology to make an amazing carbon fiber bike for ANYONE.
Atlas | Carbon Fiber Road
The Atlas is the culmination of years of perfecting carbon production and ride quality. This sub 900 gram frame provides the perfect weight-strength ratio that every rider looks for. The rear triangle is the same as our award-winning Helios, our best selling bike to date. A newly designed bottom bracket pairs perfectly with a 27.2mm seatpost, giving the rider a stiff yet cushioned ride.
This is our most progressive carbon road bike, offered in stock sizes and our signature stock colors.

Aiolos | Ben Serotta Inspired!
The Aiolos was designed and engineered with Ben Serotta and demonstrates titanium's finest qualities: light, stiff and lively. Up front, the oversized head tube combines with an external headset and tapered fork to save weight, dampen vibration and improve ride quality. In the middle, the butted tubes shave weight where unnecessary, while the swaged rear triangle improves ride comfort and increases tube strength.
"Every detail is thoroughly considered for pure functionality, thoughtfully placed cable and wire routing, and non-tapered head tube. This is a serious racing tool, built the way a modern metal race bike should be crafted — without a single silly detail." - Ben Serotta
Eros | Titanium Road
Strong and graceful define titanium as a frame material. It excels at everything, from climbs and dirt roads, to long-distance randonneuring and sharp mountain descents. We designed the Eros to be vertically compliant while maintaining lateral rigidity, and to be forgiving on the body while propelling you with conviction at every pedal stroke.
The Eros features state-of-the-art titanium craftsmanship set against the guidelines of the American Welding Society, meaning that the welds must be flush to the joint, no concave or convex welds (unless specified), and no undercutting.
S bends on the seat and chain stays distinguish its classy, subtle design while tapered down tube and top tube add to its sleek look. If you're looking to fall in love with your bike again, the Eros will seduce you.
Skylla | Stainless Steel Road
Stainless steel is a respectable option for someone looking for something lighter and more durable than steel but unable to justify the added cost of titanium. The Skylla demonstrates our core values: design, quality, and performance while highlighting the merits of stainless steel as a frame material.
Stainless steel offers superior impact resistance and lighter weight over chromoly and, much like titanium, stainless steel has extreme corrosion resistance and a very long fatigue life. In the case of KVA MS3, stainless steel actually has twice the tensile strength of titanium!
Alchemy partners exclusively with KVA to use its MS3 tubes. The benefits of MS3 over the competition are huge. The primary differences lie in its strength, ride quality and cost.
Alchemy currently offers stainless steel 'cross and road bikes styled on traditional road and dirt race road platforms. Our dirt road racer is distinguished by a slightly slack geometry and a little extra room around the stays to accommodate fatter tires.
Kyros | Steel Road Bike
Our custom blended chromoly steel tubes create a perfect balance between strength and agility to make this road bike great for any style of riding. The tubes are oversized and butted, ensuring durability while not without sacrificing the buttery smooth ride. Take this bike up the toughest climbs and ensure a stable ride down the other side.
Aithon | Carbon Gravel Racer
Inspired by a growing enduro gravel racing scene and named for one of the fire-breathing, immortal horses of the Greek gods, the Aithon is a bike for the long haul. The carbon fiber frame is perfectly suited to dampen the constant vibrations of gravel riding without sacrificing efficiency. The proprietary Alchemy carbon fiber fork, specifically designed for the rigors of graded surfaces, was tested on the roads of Colorado's Front Range. The stock disc brakes keep you rolling when the roads get wet and the mud starts to build. When your personal odyssey takes you off the pavement and toward the horizon, the Aithon is the bike of choice.
Balius | Carbon Cyclocross
The carbon fiber Balius brings a new dimension to competitive cyclocross, where the bike can now be tuned to the rider's strengths. Dive into corners with precision, descend without regret, or outsprint your nearest rival in the finishing stretch — whatever your cyclocross super power is, the Balius is your secret weapon. Fortify your strength with our signature tube-to-tube lay up schedule with specific stiffness characteristics oriented to how you want the Balius to perform. Fly through run-ups without having to hoist a heavy frame; durable, lightweight carbon fiber easily rises to the occasion. Just like our aero road bike offering, we believe it is time for carbon fiber riders to move away from mass production because of the "tuneabilbity," superior fit, performance and durability that custom carbon fiber bikes have to offer.
Discover the joy of a custom titanium cross bicycle! This titanium cross bike is light and super responsive. We use USA-made seamless 3a/2.5v titanium tubing to create a frame that will hold up to whatever abuse you choose to subject it to, be it performance 'cross, touring or commuting.
The Chiron features state-of-the-art titanium craftsmanship set against the guidelines of the American Welding Society, meaning that the welds must be flush to the joint, no concave or convex welds (unless specified), and no undercutting.
S bends on the seat and chain stays and a tapered down tube and top tube add to its sleek look, stability, and tire clearance.
Konis | Steel Cycloross/Gravel
We have taken the original Cross style bike and made it stiffer and lighter while maintaining the sleek look of steel. Oversized tubing gives the Konis added performance and power transfer while the butted tubes make a stiffer and lighter frame. Only the highest quality chromoly steel is selected and each butted tube is hand picked, ensuring that the bumps and jumps encountered in cyclocross and gravel are absorbed. Look no further than the Konis for the true "Steel is Real" ride.
Arktos | Carbon Fiber Full-Suspension
Alchemy brings its expertise in high-end carbon to the Arktos: Alchemy’s full-suspension mountain bike in the form of tube shaping and layups that target stiffness and strength where needed, as well as durability that stands up to the rigors of aggressive trail riding. It has 6 inches of travel, 27.5-inch wheels and pretty typical trail bike geometry.
The Arktos features a new dual-linkage platform called Sine Suspension that Alchemy licensed exclusively from David Earle. The name Sine derives from the way the shock rate, when graphed, resembles a sine wave: It’s regressive through the first part of the travel to absorb small bumps and provide climbing traction; progressive in the middle of the stroke to avoid wallowing on big hits or in hard, fast corners; then slightly regressive again in the last 15 percent of the stroke to enable the bike to use all 6 inches of its rear-wheel travel. Sine is also designed to minimize chainstay growth when the bike is moving, which is intended to help with pedaling efficiency and keep the...more
Oros | Carbon Fiber Hard-Tail
The Oros is Alchemy’s 29” carbon fiber hard-tail mountain bike and is the culmination of years of hand laying carbon fiber and pushing the limits of what's expected of a bike. The durable and lightweight frame, weighing in at just around 1200 grams, uses a trapped rubber molding process to achieve its big, bold shapes without compromising fiber compaction. Like all of the molds for our other bikes, the Oros’ molds, shaped tubes, and frame are made in house.
The Oros is specifically designed to maximize the torsional and horizontal rigidity expected in a 29er hard-tail. The massive headtube creates torsional rigidity even though it’s fairly short. This is a general necessity to keep overall front end height reasonably low on a 29er. Cable ports use plugs to keep the shift cables or Di2 wires in place. The seat tube cluster goes wide to give the seat stays a wider stance for better lateral rigidity and clearance for 2.3″ tires. The bottom bracket uses a Pressfit 86 and an indent on the driveside provides clearance for a double crankset....more
