LYCOS Au

 

Featherlight Build: 
Heavyweight Performance

Why Au?

The Lycos Au is every bit as capable, and purpose built for gravel riding as the Lycos itself, but the weight-savings makes this bike a race-ready option as well. The high modulus carbon contruction and revised layup make this bike even more responsive, while the dropped chainstays and shaped seatube give some comfort at the same time. The lightweight finishing options help to protect the carbon frame from the elements, while still letting you see the craftsmanship below. Clearance for 50mm tires and optional rack and fender mounts give this bike unparalleled versatility.

The Au line utilizes Enduro Directline pulley wheels, as well as XD15 bearings in the bottom bracket and hubs to give you the best possible efficiency with the most reliable bearing system on the market.

WHY?

Does gravel, dirt and mud feed your soul and conjure up your inner child? Yeah, us too! That's why we simply had to design the perfect steed for riding everywhere in that long-forgotten Mecca that lies between the pavement and serious MTB trails: the all-new, entirely US-made Alchemy Lycos, engineered with our award-winning Factory Carbon.

HOW?
Designed as the natural complement to our highly touted Ronin gravel bike honoring Alchemy's renowned legacy of laterally stiff bikes with quick acceleration and nimble handling, the Lycos adds dramatically increased off-road capability, thanks to a slacker head tube angle, super-wide tire clearance, and updated geometry that's highly effective at absorbing chatter and bumps. While the Ronin is happiest on more established gravel/dirt/paved roads, the new Lycos yearns to take you further afield, where gravel roads become doubletrack and even semi-technical singletrack. Bonus features like ultra-tough Cerakote paint and SRAM's Universal Derailleur Hanger promise added versatility, range and durability.
