the Tension WMN

Glossy Black / Seafoam Green

A fast and mean aluminium cyclocross racer

"The same fast and furious experience as the men’s version. Adjusted for ergonomics only, its aggressive nature remains undimmed. “

Introducing the Tension WMN

The same fast and furious experience as the men’s version. Adjusted for ergonomics only, its aggressive nature remains undimmed. Standardising the rider’s experience, regardless of their size, smaller 650B wheels on XS and S sizes allow a correct racing geometry to be maintained across the range. With the geometry dialled, each bike benefits from a simplified single-ring Sram Apex 1 groupset, hydraulic disc brakes, and steadfast through axle hubs. Producing a range of adventure bikes, we’ve left the Tension as a pure racer. Designed for hour-long racing efforts, or hacking through the woods at maximum speed.
