“The Falkenjagd Aristos ST’s bottom bracket measurement data was a big surprise. The stiffness is more than just competitive, and better even than some highly-priced carbon models.”
RennRad (November 2014)
Riding long distances on a racing bike isn’t just about speed. On day long rides, it’s more about keeping up a brisk pace for the duration. A situation better suited to a powerful sled dog than a skittish greyhound. With its longer head tube and somewhat longer chain stays, the Aristos is built for exactly this kind of riding: the more upright riding position allows greater power delivery over the long hours of a full day in the saddle. A range of build options means that the balance between speed and comfort can be fine-tuned when ordering.
This emphasis on endurance is paralleled in the use of titanium, probably the most durable frame-building material available to the bicycle industry. The Aristos ST is orientated towards sport cyclists who simply want a more comfortable riding position while either covering some serious distance or just getting some speedy fun – rather than going for the burn.
The Aristos ST’s titanium frame has a permanent silvery sheen. Its sleek minimalism stands unencumbered by distracting colours or fancy design features – it needs no gimmicks. Wheel clearance is sufficient for 28mm tyres, which means that the ST can also be set up for riding on rougher road surfaces. The seat stays are slightly reinforced, to provide a solid mounting point for the disc brakes.
Standard Aristos ST groupset options are Campagnolo Super Record, Chorus or Potenza. Shimano Dura-Ace or Ultegra can also be fitted and other component specifications are available on request. Aside from brakes and gears, the standard spec is Syntace, with a Titanium package from Falkenjagd and a Tune Components package available in a range of anodised colours. Tyres can be 23mm, to emphasise speed, or 25mm, for where the priority is ride comfort.
