The Kestrel Men's Legend Ultegra 11spd Performance Road Bike '14 offers uncompromising performance with class-leading technology. A brand-new carbon design and lay-up, along with our Kestrel EMS fork, stays, and frame shape provide a flawless riding quality and instant acceleration. The Legend is stiff providing exceptional power to the pedals, yet compliant to absorb and glide over any bumps in the road.
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.
Featherweight 780 grams – lightest frame Kestrel has ever produced
Ultra high-modulus and high-strength carbon fiber with ground-breaking weight-to-stiffness ratio
PU inner molds supply smoother inner walls, an increase in stiffness, better compaction, minimized wrinkles, and optimized resin content
EPS foam forming used in the manufacturing of the fork provides better layup in the crown area for improved compaction and resin content
Kestrel EMS fork and H-stays provide compliance, comfort, and improve lateral stiffness
Proprietary tapered head tube enhances steering precision and front-end stiffness
Asymmetrical chainstays offset drivetrain-induced torque on the rear triangle
Size-specific frame for each frame size. Larger frames use slightly larger diameter tubing for increased stiffness for larger riders.
Downtube and top tube wrap around the head tube for increased front-end stiffness, which aids in steering precision.
Shorter head tube for competition geometry and an aggressive riding position that pro-level competitors demand
BB30 is 18% stiffer than the RT-900; 1 1/8” – 1 ½” tapered head tube is 26% stiffer than the RT-900; frame is 22% lighter than the RT-900
