Planet X Tempest Force 1 650B Planet X Tempest Force 1 650B

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 1 is a 1x 11 speed groupset that brings a host of great new features to the party. A single front chainring with 'Narrow-wide' tooth profile ensures chain retention. Add in the extra chain tension that comes from the 'clutch mech' design and you have the best chain security you can ride. SRAMs wide-range cassette to give you the maximum gear options for powering up and down the trails, whilst powerful Force 1 HRD hydraulic brakes give effortless stopping power and great modulation so you can finesse your braking efforts to suit the surface conditions. An all-round elite level groupset with significant advantages over its competitors in the field. We've upgraded to SRAM extra wide 11-42 cassette, giving you an even wider gear range than ever before, there's no better bike for tackling the steepest tracks.

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: Hand built by experts, FSA's Afterburner wheelset offers rock solid off-road performance. They are billed as their do-it-all XC-Race-Trail and Adventure wheelset and we can see why. Built on strong and light asymmetrical rims and laced up using straight pull spokes these wheels are light and strong. They spin on fully sealed stainless-steel cartridge bearings and a 6-pawl freehub design.

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.
