ALCHEMY ARKTOS CUSTOM
6″ TRAVEL • 27.5″ • TRAIL/ALL MOUNTAIN
The Arktos Custom is made by Alchemy in Denver, CO and features a new dual-linkage platform called Sine Suspension that Alchemy licensed exclusively from David Earle. The name Sine derives from the way the shock rate, when graphed, resembles a sine wave. It is intended to help with pedaling efficiency and keep the suspension active under braking by using tube shaping and layups that target stiffness and strength where needed. The Arktos has 6 inches of travel, 27.5-inch wheels and pretty typical trail bike geometry.
“The platform was super stiff and efficient while keeping the wheels in contact with the ground for excellent traction. Now, about the descents…I did my best to pick the roughest lines and made a conscious effort to lay off the brakes whenever possible. The result: a super grounded, solid feel, even through washboard sections and over awkward, eroded lines cutting across the trail.”
Jeff Barber, Singletracks.com
“With the Arktos’ Sine Supsension it climbs better than any bike in its category and descends like a monster. If I had to pick one mountain bike to ride all over Colorado, it’d be the Arktos every time.”
