This is the Kestrel Legend SL Ultegra Di2 Road Bike. 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.


Features:

  • 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

Size Selection:
Bike size selection is a combination  of measurement, rider preference, and rider style.  The guide above is intended as a starting point, but it is recommended that you try out a few frame sizes in your range and pay attention to the frame size as well as the top tube length.  Top tube length is a key measurement to find the right size frame since geometry can differ from one model to another.
