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.
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 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.
