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 RT-1000 SL is made from a special 800k high modulus carbon fiber. While the Kestrel 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 and smooth handling. The RT-1000 SL frame is simply built to dish out enormous amounts of wattage and quickly.
