Kestrel 5000 SL Ultegra Triathlon Road Bike - 2018
Kestrel introduced the first ever all-carbon race bike in 1987. Since then, the engineers at Kestrel have managed to maintain industry standards with constant innovation to create some of the world's fastest race bikes. Introducing the Kestrel 5000, a purposefully-designed superbike that is Kestrel's fastest to date.
Constructed of an all new 800K high modulus carbon fiber, the lightest and strongest frame possible, the 5000 is designed for competitive triathletes looking for a proven tri-specific weapon with superior aerodynamics that offer optimum comfort and adjustability.
The 5000's geometry is ideal for the demands of long-distance triathlons, with a slightly shorter top tube for a more upright riding position to keep the legs fresh and strong for the run. Kestrel's Ultegra version features pro-proven components with trickle down technology from Shimano's top-of-the-line Dura-Ace series to offer the same level of performance, only optimized for a lower price point. If you want a bike that functions at a pro level, but without the bells and whistles of a pro level price tag, the Kestrel 5000 SL Ultegra is the bike you want.
