From the moment we first unveiled the Arise we were overwhelmed by the response it got. The original concept for the bike was to be a simple low maintenance single speed bike that could be used for commuting through the week, and small adventures.
Thanks to the wonders of social media, we’ve loved the ability to see how our Arise bikes get transformed by their owners to fit their daily needs, from commuting, doing a school run or even as a weekend CX toy.
From the moment the Needle was launched it caught the eye of track and criterium riders due to its steel, rather than alloy frame. The Reynolds 725 tube-set is double butted and heat-treated for a higher strength to weight ratio.
The Needle is all about balance. In Crit racing you need a bike that has enough stiffness to ensure it reacts to your every input, but with enough ‘give’ to absorb the rougher surfaces of a typical Crit circuit.
In today‘s world of high modulus carbon fiber and complex hyro-formed aluminium, there is something about the clean and classic look of a steel frame that will always appeal, and not only to the purists.
Brand new for 2017, the Tempest Disc brings with it the superior braking performance of disc brakes to our trusted road bike. Although the pro peloton can’t enjoy the benefits of disc brakes at this moment, fortunately us mere mortals can.
