Aurum is the brand created by Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso and launched in 2020, and which is the bike supplier of Contador's Eolo-Kometa ProTeam.

For 2022 Aurum has introduced a new 'Arctic White' colour way for the team bike (and team bike replica). Not usually news in itself, but we think this has to be one of the best-looking race bikes (opens in new tab) in the pro peloton.

At the moment the Aurum is the brand's only model - a pure race bike that, according to the brand's website, is "the bike they [Contador and Basso] wish they had had throughout their careers".

It's also the bike Contador used when he broke the Everesting record in 2020 (opens in new tab).

The super-clean aesthetic with just minimal black decals and a UCI frame sticker definitely does it for us, as does the premium spec: SRAM Red eTap AXS groupset, ENVE components and wheels - though the Lightweight Meilenstein wheels in these studio shots are particularly lovely.
