By not focusing on racing the Specialized Aethos breaks some of the unwritten rules of the road but delivers that pure riding experience that every cyclist dreams of.
It’s just a bike, but oh what a bike it is.
We visited Specialized HQ to get the low down on the Aethos. See our first look video to find out more about this exciting new road bike.
The Ride of Your Life
Do you yearn for more than a race bike? The Aethos offers Superior handling and an unrivalled ride. It’s the epitome of quality, performance, and style.
For a pure riding experience
The Aethos is built for those moments where we lose ourselves in the reverence of dancing up a climb or telepathically carving through a turn, where we feel liberated from the constraints that surround everyday life and the miles just melt into hours.
Not designed for racing!
If you’re not chasing those marginal aero gains, then you can focus more on the quality of the ride. By design the Aethos is fast, but it’s the pure riding pleasure of this bike that will capture your heart.
No Lazy Fibres
By utilizing larger, longer and more continuous, unbroken plies in the carbon layup the Aethos needs fewer stiffness layers so the overall weight is lower, much lower.
With a weight as low as 5.9kg the Aethos is illegal in some racing circles. Yet it’s still rated for a 275-pound rider and possesses all the telepathic handling, response, and stiffness targets that you expect from Specialized.
The Specialized Aethos breaks the unwritten rule that says road bikes must be focused on racing. It’s still a performance machine that can live with the fastest, but for pure riding pleasure, this bike is unrivalled.
