Kestrel 2016 Legend Shimano 105 Satin Carbon/Blue Gray Road Bike 2016

Standard Legend frames are constructed of Kestrel’s Enhanced Modulus Hybrid (EMH) carbon, a combination of 800K and 700K carbon fibers
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.
Geometry is aggressive, with a low head tube for a more aerodynamic position; and the tapered 1 1/8 – 1 ½ head tube enhances lateral stiffness for excellent steering precision.

The Legend is for the ones in the hunt for a best-level race bike who crave speed, but who do not need to sacrifice ride quality to get it; It is very best for stage racers, climbers, and riders who come with winning of their idea of a just right ride – whether it’s a PR on the best of the climb or the overall throw on the line of the National Road Championships. What makes a Legend? The lightest frame ever produced by Kestrel at an insignificant 780 grams and one of the most lightest carbon road bikes in the marketplace. It is designed to be stiff and efficient, yet now not an ironing board – compliance in just the suitable places to supply an agile, aggressive, even as still at ease ride. some assembly required
Same old Legend frames are constructed of Kestrel’s Enhanced Modulus Hybrid (EMH) carbon, a mixture of 800K and 700K carbon fibers
Fork uses an EPS foam mold to smooth and compact the carbon fibers – very similar to the 800K carbon – to scale back weight yet build up rigidity, specifically within the fork crown.
Geometry is aggressive, with a low head tube for a more aerodynamic position; and the tapered 1 1/8 – 1 ½ head tube enhances lateral stiffness for very good steering precision.
BB30 bottom bracket maximizes frame stiffness on the crank.
Proprietary Kestrel H-Stays – the uniquely, asymmetrically shaped seat stays and chainstays – are designed to make stronger lateral stiffness and thus power transfer, even as also supplying vibration dampening.
