This legacy Aphelion bicycle design is named for the year we built our first titanium bicycle.
This fixed gear titanium model is the product of years of determination to build a perfectly balanced, lightweight bicycle that would exceed all expectations of performance, strength, endurance and style.
The corrosion resistant, all-titanium frame features a gun metal finish with carbon-fibre seat post, stem, forks and handlebars. While reducing weight is important, maintaining the strength and integrity of the construction is paramount, which is why we choose titanium as our frame composition. Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, is 60% more dense than aluminium but over twice as strong than steel. Even so, it is 45% lighter than most aluminium bikes, making for a nimble ride that will take you as far and as fast as you want to go.
Internal cable routing keeping cables free and clean.
Beautiful piece of engineering.
Your custom built single speed Aphelion bicycle is built to go the distance: an extremely lightweight, responsive and comfortable ride that can withstand even the most extreme conditions. Internal cable routing makes for a streamlined look, finished to perfection with stock or custom features of your choice.
Each Aphelion 1982 bicycle is custom made to order, and we currently have a waiting list. Trust us when we tell you – it is worth the wait!

Please note: All our bicycles are thoroughly checked prior to being dispatched and are shipped 85% assembled to prevent damage during transit. We recommend that the assembly is done by your local bike shop where it can be assembled, adjusted and prepared for your first ride. However, assembling a bike is quite easy and fun so we have provided a manual and the tools you will need in the box.
Please note: Colour may differ slightly from photos due to different monitor settings and/or photo lighting.
