The Tempest range has been transformed for 2018. Striking graphics, focused geometry and the addition of a carbon and women's specific model reflect the essence of modern road cycling. Although utilizing steel for it's frame, the Tempest is truly a contemporary road bike. Looking closely, the tapered head tube, thru-axles and flat mount disc brakes are all incorporated into this true machine of today. Now exclusively in disc brake form, the Tempest has been sharpened with new criterium derived geometry, refocused and more aggressive. Carrying on this repurposing, the Tempest WMN brings the classic-meets-modern into a women's specific version. Utilising components and adusted geometry to ensure the most natural ride and instinctive feel. The Tempest-C carries the sprit of its steel siblings into a truly futuristic form. More akin to a sci-fi spaceship than a bike, this is one two-wheeled sculpture demanding closer inspection and a turn of the pedals.
The Tempest has always flown the flat for steel road bikes, but from its first inception this bike was far from 'traditional'. The Columbus double butted tubing is selected in diameters to produce an ultra stiff frame that can retain a superb ride thanks to the inherent dampening characteristics of the material. Coming equipped with Shimano's 105 groupset and DT Swiss P1800 wheelset the Tempest yearns for more than a café ride!
