Riding Discipline – Alchemy

Alchemy Custom Carbon Cross The C3X cross bike attempts to maintain the traditional look of a ‘cross bike while utilizing the performance benefits of ‘gourmet’ carbon. Painstakingly sparse tube to tube layup on Enve’s round carbon tubes gives optimal ‘cross strength at a road bike weight. Our finish is a clear coat over raw carbon to highlight the beauty of the construction with hand painted Lions of Flanders to pay homage to the roots of cyclocross. The build on the C3X utilizes the best of current performance ‘cross technologies, including HED’s tough Stinger 5 wheelset, TRP’s 8.4 road lever compatible linear pull brakes and Wick Werks’ super tough and smooth shifting rings. A Sram Red drivetrain helps to drive weight down to make this bike almost jump onto the shoulder at barriers.
