The Kestrel Legend is for anyone seeking fast, but comfortable ride, and don't want to sacrifice quality to get it. If you're a weekend rider, aspiring racer or big event lover, you'll love the Kestrel Legend with Shimano 105 components.
Legend frames are constructed of Kestrel's Enhanced Modulus Hybrid (EMH) carbon, a combination of 800K and 700K carbon fibers -- which offers comparable performance to the SL and LTD. The Legend fork uses an EPS foam mold to smooth and compact the carbon fibers -- similar to the 800K carbon -- to reduce weight yet increase rigidity, particularly in the fork crown. It's frame geometry is aggressive, with a low head tube for a more aerodynamic position; and the tapered head tube enhances lateral stiffness for excellent steering precision. It's designed to be stiff and efficient, agile, aggressive, while still being comfortable ride.
Shimano 105 11-speed components bring efficiency and ergonomics to the Legend, along with the versatility of a Shimano 105 52/36-tooth mid-compact crankset. Oval Concepts 527 wheels and Vittoria Zaffiro Pro 25c wide tires deliver dependable performance and grip. A set of Shimano 105 brakes supply dependable braking performance and a ZIPP Service Course finishing kit make the Legend shine like no other.
