CHAPTER2 Special Edition frames are designed to celebrate some of the most iconic races around the world. As avid followers of pro racing, we felt there was a way we can capture the essence of some of the Grand Tours, Classics and other symbolic races and present them via the silhouette of a bike frame. Each and every one of our Special Edition frames are painstakingly detailed and hand painted to deliver a truly unique and bespoke product.
The Spring Classics are a season within the season, packed with some of the toughest racing of the cycling calendar. Along the roads and climbs of Northern France, Belgium and Holland, these races often feature cobbled sections, or pavé.
Standing out in these cobbled sections is the Trouée d'Arenberg.
To honour this famous section of pavé, and the race it is part of, we have created a Special Edition TERE, with details that highlight the history of the race it is part of.
Limited to 50 individually numbered frames.
TERE means “be quick, swift and fast” in Maori. TERE is a COMPACT-AERO frame designed to perform and look like a traditional road frame. However, each and every tube profile and transition has been aerodynamically optimized via collaboration with Auckland University Wind Tunnel, the same facilities where Team New Zealand tests their America’s Cup technology.
The TERE has been designed with quality of ride in mind, and that means a well-balanced geometry, allowance for wider format tires and a carefully engineered Toray® carbon lay-up schedule throughout to deliver an engaging ride, letting you push beyond your limits and explore the road less traveled.
As with any new frame design project, the geometry is the foundation to an awesome ride. Using an extensive database of ergonomic data we were able to map out the ideal geometry that matches both the seasoned pro and weekend warrior. The TERE’s geometry has a linear stack and reach correlation from XS all the way to XL just like the human body. Married to this balanced geometry is a beautiful form factor that elevates the whole experience, employing vibration dampening chainstays and directional high tensile carbon in the BB and head tube areas for power transfer and steering “like it’s on rails”.
Whilst the TERE has been designed to be an all round performer, no short cuts have been taken to ensure that it is also aerodynamic without the inherent penalties of a pure aero road frame, such as excess weight and harsh ride quality. The fork crown has been seamlessly sculpted to the kamm-tail and ribbed head tube to increase the overall stiffness and aerodynamics.
The whole package is finished off with a compliant carbon seatpost, aerodynamically integrated seatclamp, internal cabling and a matching stem and headset to create an elegant yet exhilarating ride.
