Since its inception almost 50 years ago, Specialized has forged a reputation for crafting some of the best bikes the sport has ever seen. Yet for 2021, the brand removes racing and competitiveness from its design process, to focus on delivering a product capable of offering the purest road riding experience imaginable: the Aethos.

The newest member of the Specialized family, the Aethos is void of fancy performance-enhancing design configurations and looks as sleek as many other road bikes at first glance. But on closer inspection, the Aethos revolutionize the future of modern road bikes.

With UCI legal weights not an issue in the design, Specialized was able to go as light as desired on the frame. While there’s nothing abundantly streamlined about its look, the internal brake system has been stripped back, while the stem and handlebars have been slimmed down, all the while retaining ultimate handling and stiffness.

Aesthetically the Aesthos is dressed in a “Satin Flake Silver/Red Gold” color scheme and is also available in “Carbon/Red Gold” hues too.

Specialized’s Aethos SRAM Red eTAP AXS is available to buy now from the brand’s online webstore.
