Kestrel Legend Ultegra Road Bike - 2017

Kestrel Legend Ultegra Road Bike - 2017. While Kestrel is the first company to manufacture a carbon frame, this Kestrel is likely to be the first across the finish line. The Kestrel Legend is for anyone seeking a top-level, fast and furious race bike, but don't want to sacrifice ride quality to get it. If you're a stage racer, climber, or rider looking to throw your bike at the finish, the Legend is your formula for success. Legend frames are constructed of Kestrel's Enhanced Modulus Hybrid (EMH) carbon, a combination of 800K and 700K carbon fibers -- which offers comparable performance to the SL and LTD. The Legend fork uses an EPS foam mold to smooth and compact the carbon fibers -- similar to the 800K carbon -- to reduce weight yet increase rigidity, particularly in the fork crown. It's frame geometry is aggressive, with a low head tube for a more aerodynamic position; and the tapered head tube enhances lateral stiffness for excellent steering precision. It's designed to be stiff and efficient, agile, aggressive, while still being comfortable ride. Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components beautify the Legend, along with a Shimano Ultegra 52/36-tooth mid-compact crankset. Oval Concepts 527 wheels and Vittoria Zaffiro Pro 25c wide tires deliver dependable performance and grip. A set of Shimano Ultegra brakes supply plenty of braking performance and a ZIPP Service Course finishing kit make the Legend shine like no other.

Kestrel Legend Road Bike Ultegra - 2016

Kestrel Legend Road Bike Ultegra - 2016. Ready to ride with the fast boys but want to stay under budget? The Kestrel Legend Ultegra 11-speed is the bike for you. Start with the fact that every Kestrel design is proprietary and engineered from scratch in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, not in some clone factory overseas. After extensive computer-aided design and analysis, the models are tested by sponsored riders and engineers, all nit-pickers and perfectionists. Only then, after miles of test riding under a barrage of conditions, is the Kestrel Legend ready for you The Kestrel Legend Ultegra frame is made from a special blend of 700k and 800k high modulus carbon fiber. While the 700k material is incredibly stiff, the 800k carbon is 30% more stiff, and allows Kestrel to use 20% less material in the production of the frame, which gives you a lighter and stiffer bike. The BB30 press fit bottom bracket and tapered head tube increases the amount of frame stiffness, so every pedal stroke transfers to precious watts. The Legend is outfitted in Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components, which are transforming the component industry because we all want to go to eleven, don't we? Shimano Ultegra features flawless function and lightweight performance. Paired with the Oval Concepts 720 hollow forged crankset, you're ready to assert yourself at the front of the group ride or just hammer your intervals. Ergonomics are further enhanced by a re-profiled perch that reduces overall reach and girth. The wide-link Ultegra rear derailleur's main body was produced with rigid pivots, which creates the foundation for precise shifts. The body and cage design accommodates a 28-tooth large cog so the mountain stages can be attacked with confidence and the semi-compact crank gives you top-end speed on the descent. Oval Concepts has long been lauded for producing high quality components. No one likes to have to buy a second set of wheels because the ones that came with the bike are not the same high quality. With the Oval 527 alloy clinchers you get the speed advantage without going overboard on an aero profile or losing comfort. They come outfitted with Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick tires for top rolling efficiency. A ProLgo Scratch Pro saddle with alloy rails and a 905 carbon-wrapped seat post add more efficiency and reduce weight to an already streamlined high performance road bike that offers top value without compromise.

Kestrel Legend Ltd Sram Red Road Bike - 2016

Kestrel Legend LTD SRAM Red Road Bike - 2016. The Kestrel Legend LTD is for those riders who want a top-level race bike for everything from crits to fondos, but who don't want to sacrifice ride quality to get it. So whether you're a stage racer, climber, and or just a rider who wants to win every group ride, the Kestrel legend is the fastest, slickest, lightest bike this side of UCI-legal. What makes a Legend a legend? Start with the lightest frame ever produced by Kestrel, perhaps the most innovator carbon designers in the bike industry. At a mere 780 grams and one of the lightest carbon road bikes on the market, it's designed to be stiff and efficient in just the right places to produce an agile, aggressive, while still comfortable ride. Kestrel's lightest carbon construction is used only on LTD and SL (Super Light) models and utilizes inner polyurethane molds in high-stress areas such as the BB shell and head tube to minimize wrinkles in the carbon layers for greater compaction and stiffness. The new Legend LTD builds off the 780g SL frame and pairs its with carefully selected components from brands like SRAM, Reynolds, Tune, and Prologo for the lightest production Kestrel ever made at just over 11 lbs. That's not a typo. In addition to being seriously light, the geometry is aggressive, with a low head tube for a more aerodynamic position, and the tapered 1 1/8 -- 1 head tube enhances lateral stiffness for excellent steering precision. A BB30 bottom bracket gives the frame stiffness at the crank while proprietary Kestrel H-Stays -- the uniquely, asymmetrically shaped seat stays and chainstays -- are designed to improve lateral stiffness and thus power transfer, while also dampening vibration for long hours in the saddle. As with every Kestrel each of the seven sizes has unique tube lengths, diameters, shapes, and carbon layups to produce the best possible ride quality for every size rider. The folks at Kestrel keep their commitment to weight reduction by adding the SRAM's Red 22 groupset. Sram Red is unique in several ways: there is the doubletap shifting action, hollow dome cassette, the yawing action of the front derailleur gives you true 22 gears without crosschaining, and the TRP R979EQ brakes are light, stop fast, and will fit fatter rims if you switch out to race wheels. Finally, the wheelset and tires are race worthy to say the least. You'll see them on pro teams and now you can have them too. The Kestrel Legend LTD might not get you on a grand tour, but you'll feel like you belong there and that's saying something.
