the Tension 2

Looking funky, but so damn ready to get muddy.

"The Tension 2 comes with a race-ready high-tech hydroformed alloy frame and full-carbon fork."

Introducing the Tension 2

The same frame as the Tension 1 but with the addition of a full carbon fork for reduced weight. Hunt's 4season wheels also cut critical rolling mass for snappy acceleration, and add tubeless compatibility to shrug off punctures. A Sram Rival hydraulic groupset shaves a couple more grams, while the 11-36t cassette offers a more race focused gear range than the Tension 1. For versatility, a long cage derailleur still allows a broader cassette to be added down the line. Ritchey components round out the finishing kit on this race-ready bike.
