In today's world of high modulus carbon fiber and complex hyro-formed aluminum there is something about the clean and classic look of a steel frame that will always appeal, and not only to the purists. Being made from Reynolds 725 tubing, the Tempest has slim and clean lines synonymous with a classic steel frame but in an entirely modern design. Due to the inherent dampening characteristics of steel, the frame offers more compliance, making the frame effective in transferring power but also supple, for a comfortable ride. The modern road geometry avoids being too extreme, so the shorter rear end and head angle make for a comfortable and dynamic ride giving the confidence to carve through any corner.
The Tempest makes no compromises in the drivetrain, thanks to the full Shimano 105 group-set, and with 52/36 chainrings and an 11-28 cassette there is always the right gear available, no matter the gradient. In order to put the energy down to the road, the Tempest comes with the Mavic Ksyrium Equipe wheelset. The rims profile is wider to suit the 25c tires and as the rim is welded rather than pinned it is lighter too. A complete set of Deda components form the finishing kit. The Zero 2 stem RHM handlebar form a stiff and light cockpit and the sleek Fabric Scoop saddle and Deda RSX01 seatpost cement this bike as a truly modern race bike.
