Business in the front, party in the rear.
The emerging crop of mixed-wheel bikes have been described as mullet bikes, so the above is certainly appropriate. But there is more to the new 160mm front 140mm rear travel Alchemy NINE7FIVE than just humorous sloganeering: this bike is a serious enduro weapon. With the bigger front wheel, the bike has the ability to mow over any obstacle. And with the smaller rear wheel, it provides the quick handling of a playful 27.5 ride. It’s really the best of both worlds.

The Arktos 29 ST (for short travel) is the younger brother of the Arktos 29, and like younger siblings, it’s shorter, quicker and more playful than its elders. Where the Arktos 29 was designed to crush fast, open, super techy EWS tracks, the Arktos 29 ST is capable of hitting the same bone-tingling descents, but adds a little fun in the mix. It turns quicker and changes directions faster on those tight switchbacks, but still has that slack geometry to keep it stable at speeds. It’s the everyday bike for hitting every track.
Featuring Alchemy’s exclusive Sine full-suspension system
The Arktos features famed designer David Earle’s patented dual-linkage suspension platform called “Sine”. The name “Sine” derives from the shock rate, which resembles a sine wave when graphed. The design creates suspension that is regressive through the first part of the travel to absorb small bumps and provide climbing traction, is progressive in the middle to avoid wallowing on big hits or in hard, fast corners, and is regressive again in the last 15 percent of the stroke so the bike can use all of its rear-wheel travel. It’s efficient, responsive, and provides downhill capabilities unparalleled in today’s crop of modern trail bikes.
It will truly transform your ride.

With a heritage like Alchemy’s, it should come as no surprise to see a bike like the US-made Arkti come to fruition. Alchemy has been producing masterful titanium frames since the company was founded over ten years ago. But the Arkti is something special even for a company that prides itself for its titanium. It’s a Swiss Army Knife of a bike, able to switch between 29er and 27.5 plus tires and capable of aggressive trail riding or hitting that jump line you’ve been considering. The Arkti used Alchemy’s proprietary titanium tubing that promises a smooth but compliant ride and a durable finish that will look ace for years to come. It’s the once-in-a-lifetime bike that everyone needs to have in their lives.
Your Dream Bike, Handcrafted in Colorado
The Atlas is purpose-built for Alchemy’s backyard – the foothills of the mountains. The Atlas’ ability to transition from climb to sweeping descent is uncanny—almost like getting a bike change after summiting and before tucking in to the drops. And once you’re in those drops, the Atlas really shines. It’s ride quality seems to only improve the faster you go. It exhibits confidence and stability without any of the harshness associated with lightweight climbing bikes.
Made in Dreams, Built in Colorado
The Eros is a perfect example of never settling for good enough. It is the very first bike Alchemy ever produced, and we never stopped improving on it. Hand crafted with USA-made titanium, the Eros is vertically compliant while maintaining lateral rigidity. This allows the Eros to be forgiving on the body while propelling you forward with conviction. The Eros really excels at everything from steep climbs to sharp mountain descents, and its classy and subtle design provides the sleek looks to make you the envy of the peloton.
Carbon Art on Wheels, Handcrafted in Colorado
The Ronin is an all-new gravel machine for Alchemy, but it’s an evolution that has taken over ten years. It features Alchemy’s award-winning carbon construction, but the layup is specific to gravel. The front triangle is designed to be vertically compliant but laterally stiff, so the top tube is slightly thinner and lighter than our road models. At the same time, the down tube is both oversize and thicker to give the bike the BB stiffness you need. The bike uses a thin wall 27.2 seat tube for comfort in the saddle, with smaller seat stays with a more noticeable bow to give vertical compliance to the rider. Each Ronin frame features a third water-bottle-cage mount, bento-box bosses, and clearance for 700x45mm tires.
Your Next Dream Bike, Handcrafted in Colorado
The Ronin Ti has been purpose-built for gravel riding, with the rider as the benefactor. S-bend seat and chain stays dampen any harsh feedback to the rider and keep the rear wheel tracking, all the while offering increased tire clearance over a traditional CX or gravel frame. The Ronin Ti accommodates 45mm 700c tires or 2.1s with 650 and all frames use Alchemy’s own-design gravel fork with fender mounting capability.
The Quiver Killer, Handcrafted in Colorado
The Hyas is your do-everything quiver-killer bike. From muddy fire roads to high-speed mountain descents, this monster will chew up whatever you throw at it. The rear triangle is the same as our award-winning Aithon, giving the rider a stiff yet cushioned ride with the ability to run up to 38c tires. Warning: Once you are on the Hyas, it’s going to be hard to get off it.
Handcrafted in Colorado
The Chiron boasts state-of-the-art titanium craftsmanship for the cyclocross and gravel connoisseur. Easily the highest performance and most stunning titanium bike in any starting grid. S-bend seat and chain stays dampen the ride and keep the rear tire tracking while also offering more tire clearance than a traditional CX or Gravel frame. Chiron’s tapered down tube and top tube translate into increased stiffness and torque at the bottom bracket. American-made seamless 3a/2.5v titanium tubing creates a frame that holds up to any abuse and delivers world-beating performance.
