<p>While Kestrel is the first company to manufacture a carbon frame, this Kestrel is likely to be the first across the finish line. The Kestrel Legend is for anyone seeking a top-level, fast and furious race bike, but don't want to sacrifice ride quality to get it. If you're a stage racer, climber, or rider looking to throw your bike at the finish, the Legend is your formula for success.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components beautify the Legend, along with a Shimano Ultegra 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 Ultegra brakes supply plenty of braking performance and a ZIPP Service Course finishing kit make the Legend shine like no other.</p>
