Update
2015 just got a whole lot faster with the release of the Kestrel Legend road bike series. Kestrel is widely recognized by the industry as the first brand to ever produce a carbon framed road bike. That head start in design and production has paid off because Kestrel continues to produce their resilient frames with an unparalleled ride quality. The 2015 Kestrel Legend Ultegra takes carbon road bikes to the next level with top-notch technology and components from leading brands like Shimano, Oval Concepts and more.

Every Kestrel design is proprietary and engineered from scratch in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The process begins with computer-aided design and analysis. Once the modeling is over, Kestrel builds structural prototypes and submits them to a battery of laboratory tests, miles of riding under both sponsored athletes and the highly knowledgeable engineers themselves. The result is a Kestrel carbon frame that is executed with a high degree of engineering mastery. The Legend Ultegra is made from a special blend of 700k and 800k high modulus carbon fiber. While the 700k material is incredibly stiff, the 800k carbon is 30% more stiff, and allows Kestrel to use 20% less material in the production of the frame. The BB30 press fit bottom bracket and tapered head tube further the amount of frame stiffness.

Coincidentally, the Kestrel Legend Ultegra drivetrain is outfitted from head-to-toe in Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components. Shimano Ultegra features flawless function and lightweight performance. That's why Kestrel selected Ultegra and an Oval Concepts 720 hollow forged crankset to provide the efficiency that you require for hills and descents alike. The Ultegra 6800 11-speed shifter levers are angled outward, which gives a head start on the arc of the shift with optimized hand placement, increasing comfort and efficiency. Ergonomics are further enhanced by a re-profiled perch that reduces overall reach and girth. The wide-link Ultegra rear derailleur's main body was produced with rigid pivots, which creates the foundation for precise shifts. The body and cage design accommodates a 28 tooth large cog so the mountain stages can be attacked with confidence.

Oval Concepts has long been revered for producing high quality components. The Oval 527 alloy clinchers provide a speed advantage without going overboard on an aero profile or losing comfort. They are outfitted with Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick. A 700 series saddle with alloy rails and a 905 carbon-wrapped seat post add more efficiency to an already streamlined high performance road bike.

  • High Modulus carbon fiber frame is light and reduces road vibration
  • Kestrel EMS Pro Full Carbon is tapered for maximum stiffness under torque
  • Shimano Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain affords you plenty of gear options
