The Falco V of Chris Kemp

Written by: Herbert Krabel
Added: Fri Jan 24 2014

We featured a gallery of the Falco V when it was introduced at the 2013 Interbike show and some folks wondered if it was vaporware. It clearly isn't vaporware and Chris Kemp can attest to that. He raced on the Falco V to defend his title at 70.3 Auckland and had a very fine bike split on it. He just did not have the right running legs that day.

The Falco V of Chris Kemp gets to enjoy a bit of rest here.

The view from the front.

The front end of the Falvo V is very beefy and you can usually see the integrated TRP brakes well here.

Total Freedom is not the nickname of the owner of this bike.

Chris Kemp races on Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 components.

The rear brake is also by TRP and is integrated into the chainstay.

Kemp set his pads and extensions up high and the cable routing could use a bit of love.

This angle shows the massive downtube and the integrated water bottle well.

A Mavic Comete disc in the back with a deep Mavic Cosmic CRX 80 wheel upfront with matching Mavic tires.

The view from above.

Up close with the elite water bottle.

What the competition sees when Kemp is up the road.

An ISM Adamo saddle tops the bike.
