With a tagline like “the sky is not the limit, it’s the starting line” Angel Cycle Works is claiming their new titanium “hyper bike” Heaven, could be cycling’s answer to the promised land.

And there are some big promises being made.

The Spanish bike manufacturer says the titanium Heaven is actually three bikes in one; a bike for road racing, gran fondo, and soft gravel.

They continue and say that Heaven “is a bicycle unaffected by the passage of time, built to resist with unlimited production standards, capable of offering everything on organic lines of radical elegance with highly innovative, technical solutions“.

Well, I don’t know about all that, but it is a pretty bike…

Angel Cycle Works (ACW) brings us to Heaven after three years of development, describing that it has been made entirely in Spain. We’ve been seeing this a lot as of late, in the blending of 3D printing and frame manufacturing with brands like No.22 and Stein&Fenton making some beautiful examples.

Heavenly Details

In Heaven, we see some evidence of the 3D printed parts in the bottom bracket form and the seat stay/top tube junction. ACW isn’t claiming to be the first to use additive 3D printing. They are claiming, however, to be the first to use the technology for a bike that is “light, efficient, reactive, durable and indefatigable, with a dynamic customization capacity”.

When comparing the Heaven frame to other high-end titanium frames that weigh up to 1600g, ACW claims to have shaved “almost 400 grams” off of competitors.

The Heaven’s Door rear dropout adaptor that comes with the frame allows you to change the length of the chain stays from 400mm to 425mm. This will allow you to run 700x30mm tires to 700x38mm tires respectively. The frame can accommodate a 140mm or 160mm rear rotor.

There is also ACW’s version of an integrated headset. Claiming that it does not require internal guides, and that “all cables pass at wide angles, without noise, blockages or vibrations – making it easily assembled”.

All the way to the top of the seat tube water bottle boss; that’s how long their 27.2 carbon seat post is. With a 3D-printed titanium bushing, the seat post sits in a cylindrical socket and runs “stress-free” inside the seat tube. There is a hidden, low-torque way to fasten the post to avoid a “concentrated pressure point”.

The carbon Heaven Master Mast can be cut to length. Then the 3D-printed titanium mast head is placed on top allowing for 5cm of adjustment. Or, the Heaven frame can just use a standard 27.2 seatpost.

A 3D-printed bottom bracket will add some lateral rigidity to the PF30 46 (the inner diameter of the BB shell) bottom bracket.

Angel Cycle Works says that there was some rethinking when it came to designing the Heaven geometry. Stating that the Heaven places you slightly above the bottom bracket claiming this position will “induce more stable and continuous pedaling, with a central position of the body between both wheels”.

  1. Sure, a 3D printed titanium bike may sound impressive, but lets not forget about the practicality and cost. Is it really worth the hype and price tag? Id rather stick to a good old-fashioned bike that gets the job done without breaking the bank. #PracticalityOverHype

    • Yeah, its cool and all, but lets be real here. The price tag is definitely gonna be sky-high. So unless youre ready to sell your soul, better stick to a good old-fashioned bike.

  2. Wow, 3D printed titanium bikes? Thats some next-level technology. Im curious about the retail cost of this heavenly machine. Any guesses?

    • Im sure this heavenly machine will come with a heavenly price tag too. Dont get your hopes up unless you have a few spare limbs to sell. But hey, who needs a house or food when you can have a 3D printed titanium bike, right?

    • Well, it all depends on how much youre willing to splurge for your dream ride. If youve got the cash to spare and crave an otherworldly biking experience, then the heavenly price tag might just be worth it. But for the rest of us, there are always more down-to-earth options out there.

    • Are you kidding? Of course its worth the price! Cutting-edge technology and premium materials dont come cheap. If you want the best, you gotta pay for it. Plus, imagine the envy of riding a titanium beauty while others settle for mediocrity.

    • Hate to burst your bubble, but the Hyperbike seems like nothing more than a flashy gimmick. Dont get your hopes up too high, my friend. I highly doubt itll live up to the hype.
