THE ALLIED ECHO
Finally, high performance, custom carbon for everyone.
Design and History
In February of 2016 when HIA Velo purchased the Guru Factory in Montreal, we also purchased the intellectual property and tooling for the highest performance custom carbon frameset in the industry, the Photon RX. Guru had spent nearly 8 years developing and refining the amazing custom frameset and Matt Phillips of Bicycling called it one of his favorite frames in 2015. ALLIED Cycle Works proudly re-launches this amazing product as the ALLIED ECHO. Best in class, custom carbon fiber that rivals the best production carbon frames in the industry and allows cyclists in need of custom to have a premium carbon frame option competitive in price with titanium and steel.
is available as a frameset-only for $3800 MSRP or you can assemble the bike as you desire in our online configurator
PERFORMANCE & RIDE
The ECHO was designed and engineered to be a thoroughbred. It is an ultra high performance bicycle that pushes the limits of both lightweight and ride quality. Now that we have put the geometry into the cyclist’s hands, it can be optimized for nearly any fit you desire.
Eight components are carefully mitered and bonded together to create the ECHO. Each frame is assembled from a custom cut kit including head tube, top tube, seat tube / BB, down tube, seat stay unit, chain stay unit and rear dropouts. Once bonded, the joints are over wrapped with perfectly placed sheets of carbon and vacuum cured turning the eight components into one perfectly custom piece.
Amazingly, the ALLIED ECHO weighs in at an impressively light 800 grams for a 56cm frame. Never before has such a high performance, carbon fiber bicycle been available in the custom bicycle marketplace.
The ECHO is crafted from USA sourced Mitsubishi MR60H intermediate modulus and HR40 high modulus carbon fiber. This blend allows ALLIED to make the ALFA an amazingly lightweight yet durable product.
WARRANTY & REPAIR SERVICE
Like all ALLIED Cycle Works products, the ECHO receives our Lifetime Warranty for manufacturing defects for the original owner as well as a 2 year paint warranty. Additionally, if something misfortunate were to happen to your ALLIED ECHO that is outside of our warranty protection, we are here to help you with our repair and repaint services. Our goal is the best ownership experience in the industry.
