the TENSION C

the out-and-out CX race machine

" ...a CX race machine, and despite its more understated looks, it packs a heft punch thanks to its race ready geometry."

Introducing the Tension C

As fast as you dare. The Tension C has won several UCI races beneath our pro rider Gosse van der Meer. With a full carbon frame and fork, it’s light and aggressive, yet features like the threaded T47 bottom bracket keep it practical for the privateer racer.

Highlights

    • Full carbon fork with through axles and flat mount disc brake. 
    •  
    • New full carbon frame with updated geometry and T47 bottom bracket
