Comfort, speed, and performance form a perfect union in the 2016 edition of the Kestrel RT-1000 Ultegra Flat Bar Road Bike. Featuring an aerodynamic carbon fiber frame/fork, Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components, plus a flat handlebar with ergonomic grips, you'll have means to comfortable enjoy your daily riding regimen.

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, yet also designed to offer a bit more compliance.

Shimano Ultegra 11-speed derailleurs and cassette assure crisp, precision gear changes from the Shimano RS700 flat bar shifters. The Oval Concepts 527 alloy wheelset with Vittoria Zaffiro Pro 700x25 tires are smooth-rolling, dependable, all-around performers. Furthermore, the Oval Concepts 650 flat bar, Oval Concepts comfort grips, plus a Prologo Kappa EVO saddle deliver all the comfort you need for sheer pedaling bliss.
