the Tempest

Now exclusively in disc brake form, the Tempest has been sharpened with new criterium derived geometry, refocused and more aggressive

"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’. The Columbus double butted tubing is selected in diameters to produce an ultra stiff frame that can retain a superb ride thanks to the inherent dampening characteristics of the material. Coming equipped with Shimano’s 105 groupset and DT Swiss P1800 wheelset the Tempest yearns for more than a café ride!

Highlights

Updated geometry with input from our team riders racing criteriums and classics, making the Tempest more race specific whilst being ‘kind’ enough to enjoy an all-day tour.

Columbus Cromor, double butted front triangle chosen for its lightweight yet durable properties.

Fork offset adjust for different sizes, for more optimized geometry.

Di2 internal routing.

Full carbon thru-axle FM disc fork with clearance for 28c tires.

DT Swiss P1800 Spline DB wheelset.
