After riding aluminium frames for many years and more than 1,5 years research, it’s finally time to reveal something big – at least for me!
Let me start at the very beginning.
Being a huge fan of old Principia aluminium road and track frames for many years, it was sad to see this company going to change direction in 2004/05. I always wanted to bring back this dedicated craftsmanship, the classic geometry and the artisan quality which made the frames famous. Not that easy, when even most old-established italien cycling companies move their production to low-cost countries and the bicycle becomes a mass-produced item. But there are still many dedicated framebuilders who put their heart and soul in each and every frame they produce, you just have to find them. I was able to find one in Italy, who was able to help me produce the frames I was thinking of.
In times were sloping, whether it is positive or negative, seems to be the only choice and most people think carbon is the one and only material for modern and competitive frames. The AURORA “Australis” is our interpretation of the perfect aluminium frameset, merging a classic geometry with modern details and modern materials.
The product and whole production process mirrors the principles AURORA is based on.
Each frame is perfectly produced by a skilled and experienced framebuilder in Italy and carefully finished in Germany!
I’m really proud to finally bring this project online.
So there it is, the AURORA “Australis”!
A high-performance aluminium Track frameset – Made in Italy!
The triple butted Dedacciai Force tubing is perfectly welded with smooth and seamless joints. The tubing is light, but offers the needed stiffness for fast riding and cornering.
The tapered headtube ensures front-end rigidity and precises steering. With our fork of choice, the Columbus FEL full carbon fork, the overall weight of the frameset is reduced and it also adds a lot to the comfort and improves the ride quality!
Our AURORA “Australis” Track frame features a pure track geometry with steep angles, tight clearance and a short wheelbase to achieve a sharp and responsive feeling on the road and on the track. Perfect for racing!
Every frame will be delivered with a Columbus FEL full carbon fork and a Campagnolo Seat Clamp.
Other forks like the Columbus Grammy (weight: 290 gr. / rake: 43 mm) or Columbus Pista Leggera (weight: 560 gr. / rake: 35mm) are available on request.

I’m really proud of this AURORA x Peter Aurisch Collaboration, after aPeter Aurisch. Exclusively for AURORA he created two artworks with a “Cyclist” theme and he also played around with the typographical aspects of the word “AURORA”. His signature style is extraordinaire and the artworks perfectly show his skills and talent.

I think there is no need to introduce Mianzi Rei again, we featured her several times.
He is a good friend and long-time supporter of AURORA and she deserves the spotlight of a personal portrait. A great personality! Keep pedaling, Mianzi!
Also some impressions from the legendary first Rad Race in Berlin made it to the film!
Check out this great production made by Baroudeur / Colorado Media.

You might noticed a lot problems with our webshop in the last weeks. The system we used was outdated, this caused a lot problems and it was not possible to fix it. So we decided to built it up from zero and that’s what we did the last 3-4 weeks.
Now we got a fresh and new webshop system running, which should work fine.
With the new system you can open a personal account, use a wishlist and it’s much more user friendly. Besides this, everything works great on all devices!
We hope you like these, not obvious but effective, changes. If you still find some bugs, have problems with the new shop or just have something to say about it – please get in touch with us!
We love to hear some feedback.
Expect some more exciting news soon.
