The Arktos 29 was the perfect platform for our build due to its quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. Alchemy designed this frame with downhill toughness while retaining a peppy attitude for climbing back up.

Frame: We began our build with Alchemy’s Arktos 29, a carbon frame with 140mm of travel and 29-inch wheels. At the heart of the Arktos is a patented dual-linkage platform called Sine Suspension. Best of all, this carbon frame is handmade in the USA.
