The Details

Introducing Aethos - A bike like no other from Specialized, super light, super comfy, super fast and possibly their best riding bike yet?

Specialized have thought outside of the box with Aethos, throwing all the traditional notions of road bikes out the window and have started completely fresh.

The frame to start is their lightest yet, weighing in at 585g - the lightest production road disc frame ever made. But it's not only lightweight, Specialized ran through hundreds of thousands of frame simulations to get to this design, with a larger than standard top tube and no dropped seatstays that we have become used to from the brand. The result is quite simply, their best riding bike, for anyone who is out cycling ont he pavement, whether you are on a group ride, on a solo mission, or just out to a cafe on a sunny day, this bike gurantees you the ride of your life.

Its not just the little details Specialized have thought about with Aethos, they have allowed enough room for 32mm tyres, included a threaded bottom bracket and have used a 27.2mm round seatpost to make for ease of use for servicing.

This S-Works build comes equipped with SRAM's top-end Red AXS 12-Speed groupset, fully wireless, looking elegant married up to this frameset. Disc brakes are common place now on road bikes and it wouldnt be the best riding road bike without them, so Aethos is disc brake only.

Brand new Roval Alpinist wheels are equipped to this bike, adding to the comfort and acurate handling of this bike.

The Aethos redefines what you want out of a road bike and completely revolutionises the riders ride experience, to put it simply, you wont ride another bike in it's league.
