the Tempest

A racer with character

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

Introducing the Tempest

The Tempest has always flown the flag for steel road bikes, but from its first inception this bike was far from ‘traditional’.

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.

Highlights

  • New full carbon tapered fork with added vertical compliance. 
  •  
  • Columbus Cromor frame with revised tubing, tapered head tube, through axles and T47 bottom bracket. 
  •  
  • New rear dropout, direct mount derailleur hanger compatible with the Beyond+ derailleur hanger.
