TYRELL lovers who are looking for something higher in the performance range than the FX, can upgrade the groupset on their FX – or they can make one major upgrade in the frameset by opting for the TYRELL FSX.
With thinner walled aluminium extrusion to shave more weight off the frame while maintaining the characteristic stiffness of Tyrell bikes – the result is a triangular top tube (which also serves to become the signature of the FSX).
A full carbon handlepost and fork now comes on the FSX (compared to the FX which only the fork is carbon), the FSX is now a light, stiff frame weighing in at 8.6kg.
Beyond the weight savings, the FSX has internal cable routing for a cleaner look without external cables, which further showcases the beautiful frame. The FSX can come in either flat bar or dropbar setup, now with Shimano’s new 2×11 105 groupset – so you have 1 set of gears for flats and slopes, and another set of gears for hills. What is nice about the FSX is that you get as stock, the higher-grade AM-10 (406-sized) wheelsets from Tyrell which gives lower rolling resistance and smooth turning of the wheels.
This is a full road bike setup.
The performance on the TYRELL FSX demonstrates low rolling resistance and good acceleration as soon as you can get out on the bike. The ride is speedy and lively.
With its light handling, thin tires and speed capability – the FSX really belongs on the road. And on the road is where the TYRELL FSX lives up to its full potential. It comfortably delivers speeds of 40km/h and up, not making it look out of place in the company of full-sized roadies. Its 11-speed rear cassette gives a nice gear ratio on the outer chainring to tackle all roads and slopes, making it easy to handle. The FSX will take you through most terrains, and you really need to engage the inner chainring only when you ride into hills.
If there ever would be a bike that makes you love hill climbing, this would be the bike.
TYRELL presents the FSX as a performance folding mini-velo.
