Presenting the S-Works Aethos with SRAM RED AXS by Specialized, an epitome of superior cycling technology that craves for your love for biking. Brought into existence by billions of calculations, the Aethos frame is designed to deliver an impeccable ride that balances style with performance. Topped with the world’s lightest electronic groupset, the SRAM RED AXS, you're entitled to an unmatched cycling experience that compromises nothing for performance.

The beauty of Aethos is that out of all the frames out there, it is the lightest. Thanks to a blend of ultimate ride feel, light weight, and style. Whether it's about the exhilarating accelerations up steep pitches, controlled descents down technical slopes, or the longing for the all-day saddle comfort on the longest routes, the Aethos frames set a new benchmark. This has been achieved by subtly altering the traditional road shapes to deliver significant gains in stiffness and balance, all while securing weight or durability.

  • S-Works Aethos revolutionises bike frames by introducing a new layup and a perfected process scoring the lightest frame (585 grams, S-Works). Aethos is more than just a new bike, it’s an innovation.
  • Riding light might be futile without the confidence in the ride characteristics. Hence, the Aethos frames provide a perfect harmony of front and rear stiffness combined with phenomenal ride quality. A few strokes are all you need to experience this groundbreaking ride.
  • Every minute detail has been conceived with style, weight, and durability as prime considerations. Spec'd with Roval’s all-new Alpinist carbon seatpost and wheels, the S-Works Aethos further reduces weight and enhances ride characteristics, all in the pursuit of delivering you the perfect ride.

Your love for biking, driven by the S-Works Aethos SRAM RED AXS, prompts a new era of cycling that is engineered to perfection for the perfect ride.

Cycle to Work Scheme: Affordable Riding for UK Employees

Unlock a cost-effective way to own the bike of your dreams through the Cycle to Work Scheme. This initiative, available to employees in the UK, lets you enjoy the benefits of cycling while saving on your bike purchase.

With the Cycle to Work Scheme, you can use your pre-tax salary to acquire a brand-new bicycle and essential cycling accessories. This means significant savings for you, as your salary sacrifice reduces both your income tax and National Insurance contributions.

The process is seamless: Choose the bike that suits your needs and budget from our extensive range. Your employer will then set up a salary sacrifice arrangement, spreading the cost of your bike over a specified period, typically 12 to 18 months.

Once the salary sacrifice period ends, you have the option to own the bike outright for a nominal fee, ensuring you get to keep and enjoy your trusted two-wheeled companion for years to come.

Experience the freedom of cycling, save money, and reduce your carbon footprint with the Cycle to Work Scheme. Join countless UK employees who have already embraced this eco-friendly and wallet-friendly way of commuting.
