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: Shimano Ultegra 8000 gets the hydraulic disc brake treatment, with their 8020 STI levers integrating a new set of powerful hydraulic disc brakes into the mix. Flawless ergonomics, precision shifting and fingertip, all-weather braking control come together for the first time. Working with a 11-34 cassette, the new Shimano RX800 rear mech features a quiet clutch mechanism that improves chain retention and delivers improved shifting performance. Shimanos drivetrain quality is legendary, and we think there's no better mix of performance and value for money than the disc brake equipped version of Ultegra.

If you've ridden Ultegra before you know how much care and attention Shimano put into it. It's their best selling groupset and offers the best mix of price/performance. This new version is no exception it's simply superb.

Wheelset: Fulcrum Racing 900 Disc Fulcrum are the brand that builds Campagnolo's wheels and there's no higher reccommendation than that. Sturdy 700c rims are paired with adjustable cartridge bearings are laced to asymmetric rims for extra strength while keeping minimum weight. The Fulcrum Racing 700 Disc wheels are disc brake equipped for maximum stopping power and will do you proud mile after mile, season after season, they're the perfect wheel for the Tempest.

With powerful disc brakes, space for grippy 46mm tyres and plenty of UK mud the Tempest is all ready for your next epic cycling adventure. If you find that modern carbon bikes leave you cold, spread your wings and give the Tempest a try.
