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.
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.
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.
The Hook AL takes our established Hook bikes and gives it a more race-oriented flavor. The geometry has been tweaked and components selected to back up this purpose, from the Clement MXP tires to the Apex 1×11 driver train.
