There are products that instantly create that “I need this” feeling. We certainly got that feeling when we found these by the Alchemist stand at Eurobike. The Italians introduced us to the finest carbon Enduro bikes, hand made in Italy.

Leicht, schick und sehr edel verarbeitet: Die Alchemist Stealth Carbonlaufräder.
Light, fine and very noble: The Alchemist Stealth Carbon wheels.

On first sight, one is amazed by unique stealth look. They are produced entirely in black with a special structure around the area of the rims and hubs. Alchemist offers the wheels in a 27,5″ and a 29″ version. Both sizes come with 26mm diameter. But they differentiate in design. The price is set at €2570 for both versions. While the 27,5″ wheels are made for downhill performance, the 29ers are made for the Enduro segment. This can be seen in the almost identical weight of 1560g (27,5″) and 1540g (29″).

Trotz lediglich 24 Speichen verspricht Alechmist maximale Steifigkeit.
Alchemist guarantees maximum stiffness, although there are only 24 spokes.
Besonders auffallend ist das Design der 27,5" Carbonfelgen - we like!
The 27,5″ carbon rims are very well designed – we like.
Egal ob 27,5 oder 29" der komplette Laufradsatz kostet immer 2570 € ist dafür aber auch komplett von Hand in Italien gefertigt.
It doesn’t matter whether you choose the 27,5″ or 29″ wheels. They always cost €2570 and are hand made in Italy.
Auch die 29" Laufräder wissen mit schicker Optik zu gefallen.
The 29″ rims’ looks are very convincing.
