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 Force 11 HRD hydraulic disc brake equipped groupset provide more stopping power than any rim brake, with zero rim wear to your precious wheels. With Force 11 (22-speed) you're sure of lightening quick gear shifts the moment the impulse takes you. Gear changes are crisp with SRAM Force - and a pure pleasure. SRAM's Yaw-equipped front mech provides flawless shifting between rings without ever needing to be trimmed. Its well known that SRAM groupsets weigh significantly less than the competition, and with carbon levers, crank arms and rear derailleur cage, Force 11 is no exception.

Hydraulic disc brakes come as standard on the Tempest and SRAM's Force HDR disc brakes are exceptional examples of the art. They provide fingertip control and impressive stopping power. We love them for their all-weather braking ability and the extra confidence this gives us on every ride. If you intend riding fully loaded with a rear rack and frame-mount bags then sure fire stopping power is a big plus.

Wheelset: Clement Ushuaia 650b Gravel / Adventure wheels featuring tubeless compatible bead seat and a strong 25mm deep profile. 23mm internal width makes them perfect for larger tyres (subejct to frame clearance).

The Clement brand has a proud history, many cycling legends have raced on their tubs and they've finally moved into manufacturing their very own wheels. The Ushuaia wheelsets are Intended for Gravel and adventure riding and come in a number of different sizes. All wheels share the same construction including a tubeless ready, hookless rim and double butted J-bend spokes.

Simply put these wheels are made for adventure. They're made for lugging loads across continents, uphill, down dale, over mountain and across the plains. They're named after the southernmost tip of South America. They're not super-lightweight XC racing queens; they're solid, durable, and utterly dependable for mile after mile
