//Arktos 29 Development
When Alchemy introduced the Arktos 29 at the Sea Otter Classic in 2018, it wasn’t much of a surprise. Alchemy had debuted a 27.5-inch wheel version of the Arktos three years earlier, and it seemed natural for a larger-wheel-size version of the bike to exist. But the Arktos 29 was long in the making, overall taking two years from inception to wheels hitting the dirt. For Alchemy, this isn’t the exception. Every Alchemy bike goes through an extensive development process like the Arktos 29.
