Alchemy's New Arktos Combines 3 Travel Configurations & 2 Wheel Sizes in 1 Frame

Mar 1, 2021 at 11:42
by Sarah Moore  
The Arktos 150F/135R has a Fox 36 Factory Kashima 150mm Boost fork with a Grip 2 damper and a Fox DPX2 Factory Kashima EVOL rear shock.

Alchemy Bikes's new carbon Arktos is designed to allow for three travel configurations and two wheel sizes (29” and mixed-wheel 29”/27.5” compatibility) all with one frame. That means you can purchase the Arktos with a 120mm, a 135mm or a 150mm rear end paired with a 130mm, a 150mm or a 170mm fork. The shortest travel version only comes in a 29er option, but you can get a mullet version of the longer travel 135mm or the 150mm bike.

There are five wheel and travel configurations in total and Alchemy Bikes founder, Ryan Cannizzaro said that this bike, which has been in development for over 2 years, "Is truly one of the most versatile mountain bikes ever produced.”
Alchemy Arktos Details

• Wheel size: 29 and mixed-wheel 29/27.5 compatibility
• Travel: 120/130, 135/150, 150/170
• Sine Full-Suspension System
• Carbon frame
• Dual water bottle mount
• 63.5 to 66-degree head tube angle
• 75.5 to 78-degree seat tube angle
• 437mm chainstays
• MSRP: $5,499 - $6,899 USD
alchemybicycles.com

To achieve the different travels using the same frame, Alchemy switches the shock and uses a shock extender. The 120mm travel Arktos uses a 210x50 shock with long extender, the 135mm travel Arktos uses a 210x55 shock with long extender, and the 150mm travel uses a 230x60 shock with a short extender. The mixed wheel bikes can only be used in the 135 and 150 rear travel specs with a specific main link.

Each configuration comes in three colour options and three spec choices, with GX Eagle 12 Speed, XT 12 Speed, or X01 Eagle 12 Speed build kits. The Arktos 29 130F/120R comes with a Fox 34 29 Factory Kashima fork and a Fox DPX2 Factory Kashima rear shock, the Arktos 29 170F/150R, comes with a Fox 38 Factory Kashima fork and Fox X2 Factory Kashima rear shock, and the Arktos 29/27.5 150F/135R comes with a Fox 36 29 Factory Kashima fork and a Fox DPX2 Factory Kashima rear shock.

Prices range from $5,499 USD to $6,899 USD. Whether you've got the short travel 29er version with a 66-degree head tube angle and a 78-degree seat tube angle, or the longer travel version with a mullet configuration, 63.5 degree head tube angle and a 75.75 seat tube angle, you'll have ample hydration with dual water-bottle mounts. The frame includes a lifetime warranty.

Alchemy Bikes is taking pre-orders for the Arktos now, with bikes available in May.


The new Arktos uses Alchemy Bikes' Sine Full-Suspension System.


Alchemy’s Sine Full-Suspension System

The new Arktos features David Earle’s patented dual-linkage suspension platform called “Sine”. The name comes from the shock rate, which resembles a sine wave when graphed. Alchemy says that the design creates suspension that is regressive through the first part of the travel to absorb small bumps and provide climbing traction. It is progressive in the middle to avoid wallowing on big hits or in hard, fast corners, and is regressive again in the last 15 percent of the stroke so the bike can use all of its rear-wheel travel.

bigquotesWe have made big improvements to the new Arktos, culminating in what we feel is one of the best riding mountain bikes to date. We are now on our third refinement of our patented Sine Suspension system and the ride-quality for both climbing and descending continues to improve. Alchemy racers Evan Geankoplis and Todd Renwick will be competing on the Arktos in 2021. From professional racers to enthusiasts, we think you’re going to love this ride.Alchemy Engineer Matt Maczuzak


The Arktos 29 130F/120R comes with a Fox 34 fork and Fox DPX2 Factory Kashima EVOL rear shock.
The Arktos 170F/150R has a Fox 38 Factory Kashima 170mm Boost fork with a Grip 2 damper and a Fox X2 Factory Kashima EVOL rear shock.


Geometry

With three different travel options and two different wheel configurations, the Arktos can be everything from a short-travel 29er to an enduro race bike. The short travel 29er version comes with a 66-degree head tube angle and a 78mm seat tube angle, while the longer travel version with a mullet configuration will have a significantly more aggressive 63.5-degree head tube angle and a 75.75 seat tube angle.

Sitting pretty in the middle, I've got the Goldilocks version of the Arktos 150F/135R in a 29er wheel configuration with XT 12 Speed in for testing. It has a 65-degree head tube angle, a 76 degree seat tube angle and a 1216mm wheelbase.





Ride Impressions


Between a period of cold weather in Squamish that covered the trails in snow and ice and a trip to the Sunshine Coast to test value bikes, I've only had a couple of rides on the Alchemy Arktos 150F/135R but initial impressions are positive in that the Arktos 150F/135R strikes that middle ground of being an efficient climber while still being fun (and not the scary-fun kind of fun) on the descents. It's not an XC bike and it's not an enduro sled, meaning it should suit a wide range of riders off of the race course.

Climbing, there's little to complain about. The bike holds its line well through rough sections, and while it might not feel like a speedy XC race rocket ship, it's light and efficient enough that I'd feel comfortable taking on all-day missions. On the descents, the bike feels like it has some of the traits of the longer-travel enduro sled and carries speed well, while still being maneuverable and being easy to pop into the air.

I'm looking forward to dialling in the Arktos 150F/135R and spending more time with it in the coming months.

 Pretty sure Yeti was given the Heavy Hand by Santa Cruz with their first iteration of their Switch suspension. IIRC this is what prompted Yeti to change to the slider mechanism vs the mini inny link used on this design. Sotto Group which markets not only this design but also that which Evil and other use is "just" a catalogue design available to most with a license agreement. I am skeptical of the lower pivot/ inny link. DW used similar in the earlier iterations of the Ibis Ripley and soon changed to longer outty links.

 I understand that there are geometric principals you can't get around. But I feel like the seat tube angles and rear travel measurements are conceptually backwards.

Specifically, the 75.5° seat tube angle makes more sense for the 120 mm configuration and the 78° STA makes sense for the 150 mm configuration. But instead you get the opposite. That makes this feel like a bodge more than a clever design
  • 8 0
 That's one of my biggest gripes on these "3 travel configurations and 2 wheel sizes in one frame" bikes. I don't want a bike that has built in compromises. I want it to do a single job that it was designed for and to do it well. Sure it saves costs but if I want to race enduro, I'll get an enduro bike not a "does everything ok" bike.
  • 10 0
 Accurate comment is accurate. You want those steep seat tube angles for the big mountain bikes. You don't need them on the smaller travel bikes that do better for undulating rollercoaster terrain.
  • 1 1
 The 29 150/135 looks like the right bike. The others seem like a compromise. On the geo chart anyways.
  • 20 3
 I feel like this is the direction more bikes and components need to take: put a premium on versatility and adjustability. The higher quality suspension pieces always have seemingly infinite adjustment amounts, so it makes sense to have adjustable geometry, wheel size versatility, and user friendly components.

Also Alchemy makes sick rides so always stoked to see their new rides.

 I don’t see the benefit of having a regressive end stroke. I’ve never had problems getting full travel out of a frame; usually it’s the opposite problem, requiring spacers. Seems like a regressive end stroke would only make that end-user tuning more difficult. But what do I know, I haven’t ridden a bike whose leverage curve resembles a fancy mathematical function.
  • 6 0
 That description of their suspension sounded like the opposite of what people are usually saying works well lol. But yeah maybe sine waves are the next big hit.
  • 1 0
 Right. I'm a simple man and I want three things from my bike: small stroke sensitivity at the beginning, support in the middle, and no harsh bottom-out at the end for when things go pear shaped. This sounds like two outta three.
  • 2 4
 The formula is F = G*((m sub 1*m sub 2)/r^2), where F is the force of attraction between the two bodies, G is the universal gravitational constant, m sub 1 is the mass of the first object, m sub 2 is the mass of the second object and r is the distance between the centers of each object.

 @JeCo07: exactly thank you

 Sine wave suspension is complete garbage. having ridden the previous arktos 29 extensively, I can attest to it being one of the wonkiest feeling suspensions I have ever ridden. I hate the SB130/150 feel, and I would chose the Yeti ever day over the Alchemy. It just feels....unsettled. No one ever asked for a regressive sus curve at the end of the stroke. no one. FFS.
  • 13 13
 honestly if you hated the SB130 and SB150 I feel like there is some user error there......I get maybe not liking one over the other but between those two bikes you can have a pretty wide range of riding style and capability. IMO the SB130 was a solid enduro bike, most people that have 150-160 mm travel bikes would be way better off just learning how to dial their suspension in to their liking on a smaller travel bike. I agree regressive dampening at the end of the suspension isn't ideal, but it still seems like something you can mitigate with some tuning and trial and error.
  • 7 2
 @TotalAmateur: I test rode the SB130 and it was so bad. Felt like I couldn't accelerate. Turned me off 29er bikes entirely. Since then I have ridden a few 29ers like the Ripmo and Sentinel that felt pretty good so it must have been the bike not the wheels.
  • 4 0
 @TotalAmateur: There's a lot of stuff you can tune out, but often times there's a fundamental suspension feel that you can't tune out without compromising ride quality. I rode a Banshee Titan, and while it was great in a straight line through steep, rough technical sections, I didn't like how it didn't generate speed whatsoever pumping. While I'm sure I could tune out that feeling between low speed compression, air pressure and volume spacers, the small bump sensitivity would take a major hit to get it to feel right.
  • 9 0
 The sine curve thing is mostly bullshit. The "sine" fluctuation in the leverage curve is so nominal that the curve is effectively just a flat line - it's straight linear. Which is basically what the older yetis were (when they named them in inches instead of millimeters).

Some people like a very linear rear suspension. But I am not one of those people.

I've ridden all 3 also and the sb130 accelerated on par w/ a ripmo and way better than a sentinel.

were you death gripping the rear brake lever? it's okay to be scared of pretty bikes.
  • 2 1
 @WasatchEnduro: I would have to concur, I rode a Sentinel for the better part of a year and saw no significant benefit in acceleration, if anything I felt that the Sentinel was too stout with the wheel size and travel amount. SB130 was perfect once dialed in and some shock spacers were installed. I honestly feel like the Sb130 and sentinel are awesome bikes, def don't get the distaste for them. SB150 felt really weird and only good in a straight line. That being said the sentinel was a bit more of a saddlebred than a thoroughbred and wanted to stay going fast

 So are we not gonna talk about how the GX build gets you Fox Factory suspenders front and back, and I9 wheels/hydra hubs? That's a heck of a spec for mid-range build.

I've always like Alchemy frames, they're super clean and no fuss designs. Looks like they have the geo pretty dialed too, finally done with super tall seat tubes! I hope they ride well, some love it, some hate. Would like to give it a go.
  • 7 0
 I got a GX Evil following because of a similar spec earlier. Rockshox Ultimate suspension and I9 wheels. While admittedly not cheap at ~$5800 that is so much better to see than with like XO1 with lower-tier suspension or wheels. I’m gonna wear drivetrain parts out either way I’d always rather have the most expensive bits dialed.

Agree this is a great looking bike. Hope these more “boutique” brands go this way and deliver adjustable, dialed builds. No point trying to compete with the big dogs on more budget stuff

 This is the main problem I have with carbon construction. I do not deny carbons performance- when done correctly it can have the best ride quality with the highest strength to weight ratio of any material with near infinite fatigue life. But we aren't roadies or XC racers. Weight isn't the end all be all.

the problem I have is that current construction techniques lock brands into rigid product cycles since the fixed costs are so high for molds. Alchemy and GG are trying to get around this with the above mentioned techniques (GG is doing it better I think with their oversized head tube inserts), but its still a bucket of comprimises. To build a frame that can accept a 170mm 29er fork requires lots of reinforcement and extra material, something not needed on a 120mm trail bike with a steeper HTA, less rowdy intentions, and the much shorter axle to crown lengths. So your short travel bike now is way overbuilt, heavier, and more importantly stiffer than optimal.

Designs are also less responsive to geometry trends. How many longer travel bikes were locked into 67 degree HTAs for years because the brands had to get their moneys worth of expensive molds?

I think I bought my last carbon frame for these reasons.
  • 6 0
 My first concern as well. If I get a short 120mm bike I want super light construction like the Spur, not the same burly feel as my enduro bike.
  • 3 0
 @mtb-thetown: Ya, and stiffness matters. A given level of flex on a 120mm fork will feel much less than on a 170mm fork, since the length acts as a lever. To get a given 1mm of deflection at the tire on the ground an Enduro frame has to be much, much stiffer. I like a trail bike feel thats medium- not too stiff but not too flexy either.
  • 2 1
 Aluminum bikes are no different though. Just because it is an alloy bike does not mean that the company is more on top of things, able to adjust things as the trends change. They are still out sourced, with very few exceptions. Even GG, which does not have international logistical supply lines to worry about, does not update their stuff any faster than anyone else does. I think that the Atherton Bikes method of 3D printed lugs to a simply carbon tube set makes the most sense.
  • 1 0
 @jmhills: I see nothing wrong with outsourcing itself, if QC doesn't suffer (it usually does, but the tradeoff is lower costs).

Aluminum frames can over use hydroforming, which is just as hard to have a rapid product cycle as carbon molds. I should have said that. Aluminum, titanium, and steel CAN be better at my concerns, but its not always executed that way.
  • 1 0
 @hamncheez: I do not either. Everyone has production in basically the same place. I am pretty sure my next bike will be metal, more than likely aluminum.

 I purchased an Arktos ST last fall and it has been a great bike for me and where/how I ride. I find it kind of funny to see all the criticism of the suspension when folks rave on the Rocky Mountain/Norco/GG, Transition, etc. take on an older design. I replaced an Instinct with this bike and I had no real complaints with its suspension...other than I could never get full travel out of it Smile
  • 4 0
 Absolutely love my Arktos 29 (previous gen) and yes it is very similar to the Yeti (same suspension designer). Take a look at Dave Earle's website, there aren't many suspension designs on the market that he hasn't touched. Back to the bike, great build quality, the bike climbs way better than I would have guessed and super fun going downhill. My limits will always come before the bikes limits. Alchemy was great to deal with when I purchased the bike last winter. If I was in the market again, it would be top of my list.
  • 3 0
 Just out of curiosity... I feel like Alchemy doesn't have a bad or good rep? I feel like i don't hear many people say a lot positive things about them, but not necessarily bad; just the feeling people don't really care or support this brand. Is there a reason?
  • 5 0
 I mainly knew the brand as "that brand Cody Kelley used to ride for."

They're good-looking bikes, but they don't seem to have done anything to truly distinguish themselves or set themselves apart from other competitors in the boutique space.

 Do we really expect every bike manufacturer to make frames that are all a completely different silhouette to one another. It's different in suspension design, kinematics, geometry, quite possibly carbon lay up among numerous other things. A dirt bike looks like a dirt bike too. More completely different tho they couldn't be.

 seems to be too heavy for a 120mm bike and too less travel for an enduro/trail bike...I don´t understand that concept. So why should I prefer that bike over a 150mm full travel bike? what´s the benefit of having less rear travel?
  • 1 0
 If you add the head angle, you have a bit less vertical travel on the front, so a 65 degree headangle 150/170 bike will have around 150 mm vertical travel front and rear making for a potentially more balanced ride.

 Someone above mentioned how the suspension is much like a DW link from Ibis. I took a closer look and having has a 2nd and 3rd gen Ripley they are really close. The Ripley had an eccentric bearing at the lower link. Watch this video at the 3min 50 second mark. The lower link is basically the same principal. www.youtube.com/watch?v=jy8ywbBz1Ds

 No. Not at all. Probably have an American or Colorado flag "proudly" displayed on their frames somewhere though. There are only a couple of mainstream bike manufacturers actually producing here in the States.

Their site says that once demand increased, they had to shift production to where everyone else has their bikes produced.
  • 2 0
 @jmhills: eh I dunno. I think it was a case of once demand dropped they realized they couldnt make money at a competitive price, and with GG soaking up all the MUSA attention, they were forced to go overseas to bring the prices down.

When GG’s demand went up, they expanded production stateside.

Honestly, if GG made road/gravel bikes (under a different name, perhaps) theyd probably put Allied Cycles in a similar spot. When your premium pricing is solely based around Domestic Production, youve gotta hope nobody can beat your prices.
  • 1 0
 @PHeller: I was only repeating what their site said. They still make a couple products here. I think it is their road stuff.

They originally caught my eye as I was under the impression that they were producing here. Sad to find out that they were not. GG is pretty much the only one in that market right now. Even at a slight premium, it is worth it to me as I look for a 140/150 R travel bike.

I like Allied. They are a little higher in price but the quality and the flexibility in customization (like colors) is there.

 @the-lorax: I think that would be awesome. I can only afford to buy a bike every few years. Although, with stuff getting more expensive, that might very well be stretched out even more. I would really like my money to stay here, even if it means that I miss out on some things. The GG stuff is not as efficient as some of the other stuff but supporting an American company that makes things here is worth it to me. I would even support a Canadian company making things there.
