  • Handbuilt triple butted Ti frame
  • Carbon monocoque fork
  • SRAM Force22 HRD Groupset
  • Fulcrum Racing 900 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 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 22 HRD hydraulic disc brake equipped groupset provide more stopping power than any rim brake and does it with zero rim wear to your precious wheels. With Force 22 (2x11-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 HRD 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: Fulcrum Racing 900 disc brake version, 700c clincher wheelset. Fulcrum wheelsets excel at delivering serious value for money and their Racing 900 model is no different. Built with black anodized, stainless steel spokes, CNC machined hubs fitted with precision cartridge bearings, and all laced to shallow profile alloy rims with a machined braking surface this is a quality wheelset. A Shimano/SRAM 11-speed compatible freehub makes this a versatile wheelset for most types of road cycling. Weighing in around 1900g they're right on the money for a do-it-all wheelset. Tough enough to sprint, light enough to climb on and a pleasure to ride all day, the Fulcrum Racing 900 wheelset will be with you mile after mile.

With powerful hydraulic disc brakes, space for grippy tyres and plenty of UK mud clearance 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.
