The Au variant of the Argos utilizes a purposeful titanium tube selection to reduce weight while still maintaining the structural integrity and ride characteristics that we designed our trail-focused hardtail around. The seatstay and chainstay shapes give climbing and pedaling efficiency, while also maining comfort when it is needed. A reinforced down-tube/headtube junction ensures that the Argos Au can take the same punishment when descending as its slightly heavier brother.
The Argos Hardtail is handmade in our Colorado workshop with American Titanium. Alchemy brings decades of experience resulting in the most precise and durable welds, miters and shaping. Alchemy Titanium is distinguished by tapered, integrated head tube and S-bend seat stays. The Argos features clean bends that result in a responsive ride that is unmatched on by other frame builders. Alchemy's Ti Blend coupled with our experience in frame building make the Argos a true trail hardtail that will last a lifetime.
The rear triangle on the Argos was unique design to incorporate the brake caliper within the rear triangle offering more responsive braking and a stylish aesthetic. In addition, the S-curves on the stays provide snappiness, comfort, and an exceptional ride feel built for the trail. This design also allows mounts for numerous bikepacking bags and packs.
Alchemy’s titanium bikes are made by hand in our Colorado Workshop. With a heart of metal, your ride will last a lifetime. Our master welder shapes, miters, and welds metal into something that is truly a work of art while delivering a comfortable, high performing ride.
