Alchemy had teased us recently with the idea that they had some lightweight carbon components in the works, beyond their latest road & shape-shifting mountain bikes. But we were still surprised to see such a broad new road & all-road offering of carbon wheels, seatposts, handlebars & stems.
Alchemy carbon road, all-road wheels & cockpit components
Developed to complement their latest customizable do-it-all, made-in-Colorado Atlas road bikes (in carbon or titanium), these new wheels are the perfect lightweight way to round out your complete bike build. In fact, when we shared those new custom Atlases back in May we already had a sneak peek at the new components.
Available in width & depth combinations to suit either more classic road or modern all-road, both share the same $2375 price tag and exacting build details.
The Alchemy Carbon Road wheels feature a full carbon, hooked tubeless-ready profile with a wide for road 21mm internal width to support 25-30mm road tires. Developed with aerodynamics in mind, the Carbon Road wheelset features a 44mm deep rear rim & 38mm deep front rim, both asymmetrically optimized for disc brakes. Claimed wheelset weight is just 1431g (649g front, 782g rear).
The Alchemy Carbon All-Road wheels feature much of the same tech in a full carbon, hooked tubeless-ready 22mm internal profile for wider tires, 28-42mm for mixed-surface road & gravel riding. Developed to be light, reactive & more compliant, the Carbon All-Road wheelset features shallow 33m deep asymmetric rims front & rear. Claimed wheelset weight is just 1310g (621g front, 689g rear).
Both Carbon Road & Carbon All-Road wheels are laced by hand with trusted DT Swiss 240 EXP centerlock hubs, Sapim CX-Ray aero bladed stainless spokes & alloy nipples, and then precisely machine-trued with robotic Holland Mechanics wheelbuilders (like we’ve seen with German Leeze Wheels in the past.)
Carbon (All) Road components – bar, stem & seatposts
On the road and all-road cockpit side of things, Alchemy keeps it simple with a relatively small offering of initial sizes and proven shapes.
The $300 Alchemy Carbon Compact Handlebar comes in 42 & 44cm widths, with a compact curve featuring 80mm reach & 135mm of drop. Claiming to focus on comfort & maximum durability, the round profile 31.8mm clamp bar weighs a claimed 200g in the narrower 42cm version.
A $215 Alchemy Carbon Stem uses a directional carbon body to absorb road vibration while retaining torsional & lateral stiffness, paired to a 4-bolt forged & machined alloy faceplate to secure your 31.8 bar. Available in +/-6° rise and 100 or 110mm lengths only, it has a claimed weight of 120g (100mm).
Lastly, the $225 Alchemy Carbon Seatpost round out your new carbon contact points, with a proven two-bolt head. The seatpost is available in 27.2mm & 31.6mm diameters, and in both 0mm & 25mm offset head designs, for a claimed weight from 195g.
All of the new Alchemy Carbon Road / All-Road wheels and cockpit components are available now direct from Alchemy, plus a $50 carbon bottle cage too.
