the Tempest-C

Sculpted for a form that follows function, whilst always maintaining that balance between performance, stiffness and compliance.

"...stiff and strong where it’s needed, yet allowing flex where it’s wanted."

Introducing the Tempest-C

Our carbon race bike remains unchanged at heart. A race oriented geometry with a low stack to reach ratio, it’s stiff where you need it to be while still remaining as forgiving as possible. Hung off it this year is an updated build kit. Shimano supply the Ultegra 8000 groupset, which includes powerful hydraulic disc brakes. Hunt brings the tubeless-ready wheels, and Challenge the voluminous 27c Paris Roubaix tyres. Rounding out the package is finishing kit from Ritchey.

Highlights

Tornay T600/T800 high modulus carbon fiber construction for optimized weight and strength in critical areas.

Race oriented geometry with low stack to reach ratio.

Oversized down tube, chain stay and BB junction for optimum stiffness and power transfer.

Di2 internal routing.

12mm thru-axle dropouts front and rear.

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

Ritchey finishing kit.

All new 8000 series Shimano Ultegra groupset with hydraulic FM brakes.
