Alchemy Bikes Launches New Gravel Bike, New Titanium Hardtail, and 2022 Arktos

DENVER, CO, October 7, 2021 — Colorado-based boutique bicycle manufacturer, Alchemy Bicycles, has pushed all their chips in the dirt at this year’s Sea Otter Classic, in Monterey, CA. Built from the success of their current lineup of mountain bikes and gravel bikes, including the Arktos and Ronin, Alchemy has driven even further into the dirt arena with the launch of two new bikes and a flip chip suspension system modification for the 2022 Arktos. Customers can now expand their versatility in the dirt with the all-new Alchemy Rogue, a gravel bike, and the Argos, a new titanium hardtail mountain bike. In addition, Alchemy’s 2022 Arktos has a much-anticipated upgrade to the full-suspension Arktos mountain bike with their flip chip linkage modification. True to Alchemy’s heritage, they have doubled down on the ability to personalize their bikes, including paint, builds, and geometry customization. Below are details on each individual release including pricing, specifications, and availability.

Rogue – Gravel Bike

The Alchemy Rogue is a natural expansion of Alchemy’s handmade in Colorado gravel bike lineup and the perfect complement to the Ronin. The Rogue brings more terrain capability with a slack head tube angle, wider tire clearance and updated geometry. It is the first US-made gravel bike to include the SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH), giving the bike more range and reliability. In addition, the frame is built with the award-winning Alchemy Factory Carbon that has been revered for over a decade.

The Argos is built to tackle the strenuous climbs throughout the Colorado Rockies while maintaining strength, resilience and impact resistance.

 2022 Arktos Launch with Flip Chip

Alchemy’s 2022 Arktos features an all-new flip chip modification that now offers the ability to transform the Arktos from a capable, playful down-country bike with a steeper, more maneuverable geometry to a wickedly fast enduro machine. In addition, the flip chip modification makes it incredibly easy to convert the Arktos from a 29” bike to a mixed-wheel arrangement, further expanding the Arktos’ already impressive versatility.

Featured Information:

  • Flip chip available on Arktos 120, Arktos 135, and Arktos 150 & MX models
  • Adjust geometry with High/Low position (MX only compatible in High)
  • Groups ranging from GX Eagle, XT and X01 Eagle, with custom options available by request

Pricing and Availability:

  • Available starting 10/31/21
  • Builds ranging from $5,499 to $7,499

Updated Paint Schemes and In-House Cerakote

Alchemy, known for their custom in-house finishes and paint jobs, is pleased to expand their finishing capabilities even further. They now offer two new finishes that will also remain in-house: a chromatic harlequin paint scheme and a variety of Cerakote colors.

Cerakote, a thin polymer/ceramic coating, is drastically more durable than liquid paint and an ideal addition to Alchemy’s lineup. Applied at approximately 1/6 the thickness of standard paint, Cerakote is much lighter in weight. While other finishes can scratch and rub off over time, Cerakote will not diminish in any way, making it a perfect compliment to Alchemy’s built-to-last ideology.

Further details regarding the Rogue, Argos, Arktos, and paint updates can be found in the press kit here. More information about Alchemy Bikes can be found at alchemybikes.com.
