This is Cody’s Alchemy Helios with a naked carbon finish. The Helios, together with the aero Arion and the round-tubed Xanthus, are three carbon models on offer from the Denver based custom frame maker. The Helios sit’s in between the other two frames and features a round seat tube with aero top tube and shaped down tube.
With so much effort going into the layup of the carbon as well as the attention to each joint, Alchemy are more than happy to leave frames naked and this model shows just why.
Alchemy has such a good relationship with carbon specialists ENVE that it would seem strange to see one of their bikes without a full ENVE finishing kit. The Vredstein Fortezza Senso All Weather tires with brown sidewalls provide a nice subtle finishing touch to the SES 3.4 rims.
