Aracnide is the world’s first racing bicycle designed for the future by T°RED Bikes. This titanium, carbon and electronic “beast” can take on the force of gravity thanks to its 7 kg* total weight.
Aracnide’s unique and exclusive design is the result of a frame developed to provide the best possible performance with a hydraulic disc brake system.
Also used in cars and motorbikes, the hydraulic disc brake system is the best-performing and safest solution mechanical technology can offer. In creating Aracnide, T°RED has not “adapted” a bicycle to a new technical system, but has started with a blank sheet and created a frame conceived and designed specifically to meet the implicit requirements of a disc brake.
This intention has led to the birth of Aracnide. Every detail of Aracnide AR01RD-DISC has been designed and developed to offer the best response to the new conditions imposed by technological advances. The elegant, captivating and light-weight frame is packed with sophisticated essentials: the tapered head tube with integrated headset, the variable thickness oversize profiles of the titanium tubes, the completely internal brake cable routing and the integrated battery in the seat post all contribute to a clean-cut, simple design. The carbon fibre front fork with asymmetrical rod lacing has been designed specifically to host a thru-axle wheel connection, elegantly concealing the brake tube inside the rod. The low and streamlined rear triangle provides an excellent dynamic response and incredible reactivity, guaranteeing a comfortable and pleasant ride thanks to the use of different kinds of titanium and hardening treatments able to absorb even the highest levels of stress. The patented SMAAVS® system, available on request, reduces the vibrations transmitted to the bars from the road surface.
The research and development process that led to the creation of Aracnide has cast doubt onto everything that was once a certainty.
Dimensions, forces, stresses, dynamics. Everything has changed.
It is simply a question of time, which T°RED aims to beat in the sprint with Aracnide.
Aracnide is the best that technology can offer a human in terms of performance, lightness and direct transmission of power from the pedals to the asphalt.
A complete object, not a group of parts.
The components have not only been selected to make it as light as possible, but also to ensure balance and the very highest performance standards.
Aracnide is a bicycle conceived, designed and developed to be itself.
Challenging the force of gravity with your own forces.
All of them.
The frameset is entirely sandblasted, graphics are painted matt black. Every detail and component is thought for perfomance and reactivity. The result is a dark lady ready to take all your power and move to another level.
A unique design featuring a variety of titanium alloys to generate the best response to the stresses placed on the various parts. This perfect blend is the result of lab and road tests, combining lightness, exceptional performance and incredible comfort.
Expert Italian welding.
Asymmetrical rear triangle
The adoption of a disc brake system has caused the design to be redeveloped, creating a support able to absorb the mechanical differential generated by disc braking.
Fork and wheels
A specifically designed fork with asymmetrical rod lacing, thru-axle and concealed internal cable routing. Wheels designed and developed specifically for disc brakes, with no braking track and with asymmetrical fibre stratification. All from TOOT.
The thru-axle guarantees greater rigidity and dynamic precision in the hub-fork combination, ensuring that the hub is always in the perfect position in the dropouts and rear triangle, both in static terms and over time.
Available in brushed titanium with sanded details and graphics or painted in a customised colourway.
The FSA crankset on the BSA bottom bracket ensures smooth and easy pedalling, the FSA K-FORCE components enhance the design and keep the weight down as much as possible, while the Astute carbon saddle offers a perfect blend of lightness, performance and comfort. An aero kit is also available for those who want even faster rides.
