Unbelievable lightness. Legendary execution.
At a mere 780 grams, the brand-new Kestrel Legend is the lightest frame The First Name in Carbon Fiber has ever produced.
Made of ultra high-modulus carbon fiber with a remarkable weight-to-stiffness ratio, the Legend’s Kestrel EMS fork and H-stays provide compliance, comfort, and improve lateral stiffness; the proprietary tapered head tube enhances steering precision and front-end stiffness; and asymmetrical chainstays offset drivetrain-induced torque on the rear triangle.
From BICYCLING Magazine:..loved its smooth, efficient ride…impressively sharp drivetrain response, while tube shaping and carbon lay up help make the bike comfortable on long rides…one platform that can do everything from crits to gran fondos. A medium frame weighs 780 grams, making it competitive with many high-end bikes.
From RoadBikeRider.com: …lucky enough to be on Kestrel’s Legend SL, with its 780-gram frame, the lightest the company has ever produced…they designed the Legend to provide all the efficiency and performance of a race bicycle while adding compliance into the layup schedule and their H-stays and EMS fork to keep the rear wheel glued to the ground during high-speed cornering and take the edge off road buzz…I loved the Legend’s ride...rock stable at high speed plus nimble and quick. It was light and lively and it made hanging on the descent and climb a breeze.
The MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) for this model is $1949. The MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) is $1599
Hit the gas and the Kestrel Legend will respond with agility, sweeping though the corners with confidence and roaring up the road with aerodynamic efficiency. Yet, power and efficiency means little if you're not comfortable.
Kestrel knows carbon, as the first manufacturer of an all-carbon frame, and they've put decades of experience into making the Legend one of the smoothest riding bikes on the market.
Kestrel takes care of the drivetrain with a new Shimano 105 10sp and Oval Concepts components for lightning quick shifts. A set of aerodynamic Oval Concepts wheels, wrapped in Vittoria tires, completes this bike, making it fit to fly.
