the Tempest-C

Glossy Metallic Red

When speed is your main concern

"...stiff and strong where it’s needed, yet allowing flex where it’s wanted."

Introducing the Tempest C

When speed is your main concern. The Tempest C employs a lightweight carbon chassis and race-ready Ultegra hydraulic groupset to propel you towards the podium. Constructed of high-modulus Toray T700 and T800 fibres, it's stiff enough for sprinting but smooth enough for long days. Our most aggressive racer, it nevertheless still subscribes to our usual practical approach, with features like a durable T47 bottom bracket, disc brakes, and wide 25C tyres. Rolling on Hunt’s 4-Season sealed hub wheelset, it's ready to perform each and every time you clip in, regardless of the weather.
