the Tempest

Glossy Metallic Black

A racer with character

"Although utilising steel for it’s frame, the Tempest is truly a contemporary road bike"

Introducing the Tempest

Our fast road bike. Comfy but not slouchy, it’s ready to be ridden with intent. At its centre are a Columbus Cromor frame with revised tubing, a tapered headtube, twin through-axles, and a T47 bottom bracket. Also including a neat new rear dropout with a direct mount derailleur fitting, up front, a full carbon fork boosts compliance while retaining razor-sharp steering. A Shimano 105 2x11 groupset mated to TRP Spyre discs provide all the gears and braking power you might need. Ritchey furnishes the Tempest with its high-end finishing kit, while Hunt wheels and Vittoria Rubino Pro tyres provide the final link between you and the road.
