Built in Denver, Colorado, the Alchemy Helios is just as comfortable climbing and descending the Rockies as it is on the open plains. The Helios uses partially aero-shaped tubing, which adds stiffness where you want it, giving it sharp steering and power transfer, while the tube-to-tube construction gives it the desired damping properties that many of it’s metal predecessors are known for. It’s this signature ride that Alchemy has built its reputation around.
