About the Helium range
The Helium frame is our ultra-gourmet bike. It’s simply at the highest level when it comes to stiffness to weight ratio. We’ve designed it to be as light as possible to tackle the longest, steepest climbs. Yet it is stiff and durable enough to expertly handle the likes of André Greipel putting all his power on it in a sprint. Hence, weight as well as performance is built into this frame as it must satisfy the most demanding of our pro cyclists.

The Helium is not only built for the pros, but is designed for anyone who wants to pull everything out of their bike. It’ll help you to be fast on the climbs to grab those Strava KOM’s, fly on the flats and rolling terrain, and sprint like a pro. It’s also comfy enough to keep you motivated to ride long distances to tackle Gran Fondos.

Compatible with both mechanical and electronic shifting.
About the Helium X
The Helium X frameset shares the same geometry and technology as our SLX model, as well as all the same benefits. The only difference between the two frames is that the X is slightly heavier due to an adjustment in carbon layup grades and ratios. It’s a mixture of 30/24-ton high-modulus carbon fibre. This slight weight difference is offset by its lower price point.
The Helium / Aura frame is at the absolute highest level when it comes to stiffness to weight ratio. We’ve designed it to be as light as possible (750g for SLX size M) to tackle the longest, steepest climbs. Yet still stiff and durable enough to take the likes of Tiesj Benoot (Lotto-Soudal) putting his power on it in the Strade Bianche race. We’ve not just focused on weight but performance since it has to satisfy the most demanding of our pro cyclists.

It’s all in the tubing, especially with the Helium as it is easily our most complicated frame. The shape of the tubing has to be exact, including its tapering for selective lateral, vertical and horizontal stiffness. Some of these details can be seen when simply looking at the frame, such as the inner bulge of the chainstays for added lateral stiffness.

Don’t think that this stiff featherweight is losing its comfort. Its longer head tube adds that extra adjustability option for raising the handlebar a bit for a more comfortable riding position during the long distances. These details give the Helium / Aura that feeling of floating in air while maintaining the stiffness needed for exemplary power transfer
