The Aethos line promises three things - exceptionally light weight, perfectly balanced handling and unmistakable style. The Aethos Comp is no exception. Aethos: Billions of calculations in pursuit of one thing - the perfect ride.
The wireless SRAM Rival eTap AXS electronic groupset with hydraulic disc brakes, coupled with the ultra-strong DT Swiss R470 Disc wheels, are the perfect partner for your next adventure on the road.
The Aethos frame is the perfect combination of the ultimate riding experience, light weight and unparalleled style - to accelerate even on steep climbs, to make the most technical descents and to be comfortable even on long Sunday rides. We have reinvented the traditional road bike shape of the past. Then we subtly tweaked those shapes to deliver a huge increase in stiffness and balance, without impacting weight or durability. Combine that with an all-new layup perfected over many decades, and you have the lightest frame available (585 grams, S-Works, size 56cm). The Aethos is more than just a new bike, it's the first of a new breed.
A featherweight frame is useless without confidence-inspiring ride quality. That's why we developed Aethos with an eye on the perfect balance between stiffness and exceptional ride quality. Extensive testing has given us groundbreaking insights into how forces act on frames. You only have to ride a few metres on the bike and you will notice that this exceptional ride quality sets a new standard.
Every detail, from the derailleur hangers to the fork expander plug, has been designed with style, weight and durability in mind. The Aethos is equipped with Roval's brand new Alpinist carbon seatpost, which saves even more weight and improves handling. All in pursuit of the perfect ride.
