The creation of the Specialized S-Works Aethos started with one question “What if?”
What if there was a bike focused around the purest imaginable road riding experience? A frameset to maximize the timeless moments where everything disappears, where human and carbon machine become one.
There are riders out there that yearn for more than racing, that see the experiences of the open road as an equivalent to toeing a start line. The demands of this sophisticated rider equal that of any racer, for where racers want for speed, these riders demand a package that accounts for everything else, too. Sprightly climbs towards the clouds, wicked descents on the other side, they demand superior handling and an unrivaled ride from a bike that’s the epitome of quality, performance, and style.
THE NEW MODERN ROAD FRAME
The Aethos represents a new way of thinking about how to engineer a bicycle frame. As with all Specialized production frames it must undergo stringent testing to ensure it meets the highest quality and safety standards. The Aethos frame is exceptionally durable, even as a lightweight bicycle thanks to the optimization of the tube shapes and carbon fibre lay up.
The S Works Aethos FACT 12R framesets are only compatible with electronic drivetrains.
