Aethos is a new name for Specialized — it’s an anthology of every design success they’ve made over the last several decades. The engineers didn’t start with a blank sheet. They began with a wealth of knowledge no other cycling company in the world could match and then went to work subtly altering frame shape, carbon layup, and stiffness and balance to design the greatest riding road bike ever made. And it features the lightest frame ever made.
The Aethos Frameset gives you the chance to hand-curate the build kit of your dreams. The FACT 10r carbon frame features Rider-First Engineering, a threaded BB, and internal cable routing. Thru-axles are found front and rear, and the FACT Fork provides unparalleled compliance without sacrificing stiffness. The frameset also comes with a Roval Alpinist Carbon seatpost to help you slice through the air and remain comfortable on those all-day rides.
