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

We’ve complimented a Columbus steel frame with a parts kit of equal flair. At its centre, an all-new model of the 4Season Disc wheels from our friends in the South of England – Hunt Wheels. These tip the scales at a svelte 1579g, while a wide profile perfectly supports the Challenge Paris-Roubaix 27c tyres that wrap them. We've continued our partnership with Shimano, employing the newest R7000 version of its ever-reliable 105 groupset. Elsewhere a new addition to our bikes is Ritchey – supplying handlebar, stem, and seatpost these are as good to hold as they are to look at.

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.

Hunt 4-seasons disc tubeless ready wheels and Challenge Paris - Roubaix 700x27c tires.
