“The Aristos RS, with its immense stiffness and noticeable comfort, is a convincing sports bike – positively rampant. In terms of weight, the Aristos RS Spartakiada even gets below the UCI minimum weight limit – that’s how modern titanium is. Test grade: ‘outstanding’!“
Roadbike (December 2015)
R for radical. R for raw. R for rarefied. R for real. R for respect. R for rocket. R for rock ’n’ roll. R for restless. RS for Rennsport – the German word for ‘racing’. Our thoroughbred competition machine shows a classic frame-building material in a contemporary form. Same with the fork: no carbon-fibre here. It’s also titanium, and it looks and feels sublime. Tube sets optimised for each frame size exemplify our approach to achieving the perfect balance for each and every bike – in terms of weight, stiffness, aerodynamics and comfort.
The 44mm head tube gives the main tubes a larger weld contact area, which means much less front end movement: this results in precise steering and perfect handling. Similarly, the brace-reinforced chain stays find a broad mounting area on the wide PressFit bottom bracket shell, also enhancing the bike’s racing performance. With its race geometry, the Falkenjagd Aristos RS’s frame is all about maximum transfer of power from pedals to wheels.
This bike stands on the threshold of the impossible. A road-rocket that is lightweight, agile, and above all exceptionally stable – and competes with carbon in both headset and bottom bracket stiffness. And that’s not from us. That’s the opinion of ex pro Marcel Wüst.
The Aristos RS is available with a selection of Shimano gears and brakes, and is built with exceptionally light Tune Components wheels. From Autumn 2016 we will also be offering the new Campagnolo Super Record disc braking system. Alongside the standard Syntace components, a Falkenjagd-based Titanium package is available, plus a Tune Components package in a selection of anodised colours.
