  • Carbon monocoque fork
  • SRAM APEX1 BB5 Mechanical Groupset Full Description

Description

Titanium has a justly deserved reputation as a wonder material. No other metal matches it for strength-to-weight ratio and no carbon frame can beat it for durability and ride feel. It blends the low weight and efficiency of carbon with the handling feel of the best steel bikes. Titanium bikes always stand out from the crowd with looks and longevity that are peerless at any price; with a cast metal head badge and subtle brushed 'Invasion Stripe' detailing the Tempest is no exception. Everyone should have at least one titanium bike in their collection.

Conceived as an adventure bike for ride-anywhere cyclists. Triple butted main tubes contribute to the Tempest's lightweight feel while carefully ovalized and tapered rear triangle tubes provide subtle vertical compliance that helps to smooth out the roughest trails. Ovalized seat and down tubes mate to a 68mm bottom bracket shell to provide a firm, responsive pedalling platform. With a slightly sloping top-tube, a relaxed riding position and mounts for mudguards and panniers the Tempest is perfect for epic adventures.

Groupset: SRAM Apex 1 is a 1x 11 speed groupset that brings a host of great new features to the party. A single front chainring with 'Narrow-wide' tooth profile ensures chain retention. Add in the extra chain tension that comes from the 'clutch mech' design and you have the best chain security you can ride. SRAMs wide-range cassette to give you the maximum gear options for powering up and down the trails, whilst powerful Avid BB5 disc brakes give effortless stopping power and great modulation so you can finesse your braking efforts to suit the surface conditions. Apex 1 brings all of SRAM's cuting edge off-road technology to the entry level trail bike rider. There's an awful lot to love and a lot of new roads to ride.
