The same frame as the Tension 1 but with the addition of a full carbon fork for reduced weight. Hunt's 4season wheels also cut critical rolling mass for snappy acceleration, and add tubeless compatibility to shrug off punctures. A Sram Rival hydraulic groupset shaves a couple more grams, while the 11-36t cassette offers a more race focused gear range than the Tension 1. For versatility, a long cage derailleur still allows a broader cassette to be added down the line. Ritchey components round out the finishing kit on this race-ready bike.
The whole Tension range is new for this year, but we've already spent a whole CX season aboard Tension 2 and 3s. Honestly, there's no need for a dream build on one of these - except maybe to change to a closer-spaced, racier cassette on race day! Bombtrack's decision to send the Tension range out into the world separate from the gravelly Hook range is a big one, and it pays off with this Tension 2 getting a tweaked geometry that makes this Bombtrack's best alloy CX bike to date.
