Specialized Aethos Comp Rival eTap AXS 2022 Carbon Road Bike Gloss Clay/Pearl Information

Season : 2022

Brand : Specialized

Code : 97222-50

The Specialized Aethos provides the perfect blend between excellent ride quality, extreme lightweight, and undeniable style.

Specialized has reinvented the classic road bike shape and the Aethos delivers massive gains in stiffness and balance as a result. Specialized has done this by utilizing larger, longer and more continuous tubes that ensure the frame is exceptionally strong and durable even as one of the lightest frames out there. The Aethos frame has been designed to be super flexible with the ability to accelerate up steep hills, tackle technical descents and handle all-day rides too.

The Aethos is more than just a new bike, it’s the first of a new breed.

Aethos also provides a confidence-inspiring ride due to Specialized's meticulous work on getting the ideal balance between front and rear stiffness without sacrificing ride quality. Specialized were able to do this by studying how carbon fibres responds to different forces.

Specialized's Aethos Comp Sram Rival eTAP AXS features Sram's latest wireless group set - Rival AXS. This is combined with their powerful hydraulic disc brakes to create an exciting package that can match the performance that the Aethos frame provides.

Every detail, from the derailleur hangers to the fork expander plug have been designed for the pursuit of the perfect ride.

Lastly, comfort is not forgotten with a high-quality Roval Alpinist carbon seatpost and DT Swiss R470 rims - helping to keep weight down and improve ride characteristics.
