A REAL PLAYFUL POWERHOUSE
The T.E.M.P.O. Our new short travel trail bike is here.
Efficient to pedal. Playful like no other.
Ultra-dynamic on the flat and downhill.
125mm rear travel and 140mm front travel.
New VIRTUAL CONTACT SYSTEM kinematics using a virtual pivot point to combine liveliness and comfort.
A NEW ERA BEGINS
Gone is the fixed pivot point, in comes the virtual pivot point.
The VIRTUAL CONTACT SYSTEM offers an infinite number of new perspectives. By working on the chain effect, the variation in the position of the virtual pivot point and the progressiveness curve, we have achieved the goal for this T.E.M.P.O. That is to have a super-efficient bike when pedalling. A bike that is very dynamic when pushed, that naturally picks up speed as soon as you pump and play with the terrain. A bike that filters out the small shocks and remains comfortable on the biggest impacts.
Up & Down all day
ALREADY ON THE BIGGEST STAGE
AMAURY PIERRON, KILIAN BRON OR HUGO FRIXTALON. DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THEM?
This is what they think of their T.E.M.P.O.
It makes you want to go and find all the little features of the terrain to push into and go faster.
A real efficient bike when pedalling. But also, the most playful lively and compact of all my bikes.
A bike that pedals well and remains very playful on the downhill!
TO ALL SITUATIONS
The geometry of the T.E.M.P.O. has been designed to make it a playful, efficient bike that gives you confidence when the speed ramps up.
The 76.6° seat angle is steep enough to be effective when riding uphill, but not too steep that it’s uncomfortable when pedalling on the flat.
VARIABLE CHAIN STAYS
Chain stays vary in length depending on the size of the bike: :
— 435mm for S/M sizes
— 440mm for L/XL sizes
For long distance rides, grip, comfort and climbing.
TRUE TO OUR PRINCIPLES
Aluminium, always and everywhere. No plastic bikes from us. Aluminium, which is recyclable and recoverable, is also ideal for performance.
Our EWS and DH World Cup winning frames provide the best example of this.
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS
UDH (Universal Derailleur Hanger) AND REINFORCED THRU AXLES
We all like to be able to ride with peace of mind, so the T.E.M.P.O. uses an expander system on the thru axles to avoid things coming loose during a ride.
The UDH allows perfect alignment, protection of the derailleur, compatibility with all derailleur brands and availability almost everywhere in the world.
ROUTING INTEGRATED INTO THE HEAD TUBE
Ideal for ‘cleaning up’ the frame, to avoid infiltration of mud and water etc. And to avoid placing holes in the frame in an area that endures high stress.
PROTECTION IN HIGH-RISK AREAS
Located at strategic points on the frame, these protectors have been designed to limit impact, noise, and splashes. Chain stays, seat stays, and the down tube are all perfectly protected.
FEEL THE RHYTHM
With the T.E.M.P.O. we are rediscovering the joys of pedalling. Whatever the trail or the conditions, we always give a little more. And when it’s downhill time, we know we can count on it to be there, even through the most difficult bits.
The terrain is our playground, each compression becomes an incentive to go a little faster or jump a little higher. Pure riding, on the edge, we’ve reached the perfect T.E.M.P.O.
