Kestrel Legend 105 Bike
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.Key Features of the Kestrel Legend 105 Bike: 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-900Details SIZES: 48cm, 51cm, 53cm, 55cm, 57cm, 59cm, 62cm MAIN FRAME: Blend of 700K & 800K High Modulus Carbon Fiber REAR TRIANGLE: Blend of 700K & 800K High Modulus Carbon Fiber FORK: Kestrel EMS Pro Full Carbon, 1 1/8″ – 1 1/2″ Tapered Steerer WHEELSET: Oval Concepts 327 Alloy Clincher, 27mm rim, 20H Front, 24H Rear TIRES: Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick, 700 x 23c Folding CRANKSET: Oval Concepts 520 Alloy Compact 50/34T (48cm, 52cm: 170mm; 55cm, 57cm: 172.5mm; 60cm: 175mm) BOTTOM BRACKET: Oval Concepts external threaded w/ BB30 adaptor FRONT DERAILLEUR: Shimano 105, Braze-on REAR DERAILLEUR: Shimano 105, 10-sp SHIFTERS: Shimano 105 STI CASSETTE: Shimano 105, 11-25T CHAIN: KMC X10, 10-sp BRAKE SET: Tektro Dual Pivot BRAKE LEVERS: Shimano 105 HEADSET: FSA Orbit 1 1/8″ Top, 1 1/2″ Bottom with 15mm Top Cover HANDLEBAR: Oval Concepts 310 6061 Alloy, Ergonomic Fit (48cm, 51cm: 40cm; 53cm, 55cm: 42cm; 57cm, 59cm, 62cm: 44cm) STEM: Oval Concepts 313 6061 3D-forged 31.8mm +/- 6 degrees (48cm, 51cm: 90mm; 53cm, 55cm: 100mm; 57cm, 59cm, 62cm: 120mm) SADDLE: Oval Concepts 500 w Cr/Mo Rails SEAT POST: Oval Concepts 905 Carbon Wrap, 31.6mm x 350mm, 2-bolt Adjustable Head TAPE/GRIP: Kestrel Suede Tape
