Perfection in the cycling space is elusive, but the Kestrel Legend SL may be just that. It's 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 SL is your formula for success.
Legend SL is constructed of 800K high-modulus carbon fiber: Kestrel's lightest carbon construction used only on the limited and SL (Super Light) models. Kestrel's 800K carbon uses inner polyurethane molds in high-stress areas such as the BB shell and head tube to minimize wrinkles in the carbon layers for greater compaction and stiffness to ensure the lightest and strongest frame possible. 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 Dura-Ace 11-speed components adorn the Legend SL, along with a Shimano Dura-Ace 52/36-tooth mid-compact crankset. Oval Concepts 724 super-light aluminum rims and Vittoria Corsa 25c wide tires deliver superior performance and grip. A set of Shimano Dura-Ace brakes supply unparalleled braking performance and a ZIPP Service Course SL finishing kit make the Legend SL shine like no other.
