The tapered headtube ensures front-end rigidity and precises steering. With our fork of choice, the super light Columbus Grammy full carbon fork, the overall weight of the frameset is reduced and results in a frameset which not only looks and handles great, it can easily stand a comparision with modern carbon framesets. The Columbus Grammy fork also adds a lot to the comfort and improves the ride quality even more!
The compact geometry with steeper angles help to achieve a sharp and responsive feeling on the road.
But not only the performance and comfort are outstanding with this steel frame, also the durability is. Don’t worry about losing it’s strenght or it’s characteristics as carbon or aluminium does after some years.
It’s not a miracle that you see classic steel bikes rolling at the L’Eroica or other events that are more than 30 years old – it’s just steel and it will out last all other materials.
The AURORA “Borealis HSS” frameset is a luxury steel road frameset which is the perfect base to build up a high performance road bike.
The frame is made by a Italian master framebuilder, who put’s in all his year-long experience from building frames for many big Italian names in cycling history.
Every AURORA “Borealis HSS” is custom made to order, based on the buyers measurements and therefore individually numbered. The production is made with greatest attention to detail and takes around 4-5 weeks.

“Ride as much or as little, or as long or as short as you feel.
But ride.” ~ Eddy Merckx
I’m fine with every km and I look forward to more cycling adventures in 2015.
Besides riding bikes, I tried to start a new chapter with AURORA in the last weeks.
The first AURORA track frame was released, the feedback so far was great and there will definitely be more.
Some really artful and awesome collaborations where released in 2014 and as i’m more than happy with the results, I’m even more amazed about the great artists and people I was allowed to meet.
Especially the friends at Rad Race and everything we did together so far.
2015 will better this even more and I can’t wait to start the new season with all those Rad Races around Germany and the Netherlands. You should better check out the Rad Race website and reserve a spot.
Another Grand Tour is already in the works and of course some new AURORA gear aswell!
Let’s see what 2015 has to offer and I’m sure we will meet on the road, a fair or a Rad Race near your town.
Thanks for your ongoing support! Ride safe!
I’m really proud to finally bring this project online.
