Speed, high performance, as well as comfort go hand-in-hand with the Kestrel RT-1000 Ultegra Road Bike. With its more forgiving endurance-oriented geometry, the RT-1000 is perfect for tackling gran fondos, lengthy rides on the weekends, or simply anyone looking for a lightweight, well-spec'd bike but without super-aggressive racing geometry.

A close cousin to the Kestrel Legend, but with more relaxed geometry, the RT-1000 frameset boasts Kestrel's aerodynamic DNA and is, therefore, plenty fast but also ensures greater comfort over longer distances. The geometry features a taller head tube for a more upright position to ease back fatigue, a longer wheelbase that increases stability, and a slightly sloping top tube for easier mounting and dismounting. The RT-1000 is constructed of Kestrel's Enhanced Modulus Hybrid (EMH) carbon, a combination of 800K and 700K carbon fibers. It's lightweight and stiff, with stiffness enhanced by the BB30 bottom bracket shell, yet also designed to offer a bit more compliance.

Such a stellar frameset deserves a top-shelf build which is why there's a full complement of Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components: shift/brake levers, derailleurs, crankset, brakes, bottom bracket, and cassette. These components simply work flawlessly and are renowned for their dependability and durability. The Ultegra crankset features compact 50/34T chainrings that are paired with an 11-28T cassette for a full range of gears to tackle any terrain you might encounter. The Oval Concepts 527 alloy wheels are topped with superb Vittoria Rubino Pro tires. To round out this top notch build, the RT-1000 features ZIPP Service Course handlebars and stem for an added touch of excellence.
