Combine over 25 years of carbon bike design, superior knowledge of aerodynamics, and a genuine appreciation for the importance of on-the-bike comfort, and you've got Kestrel's RT-1000. Its aerodynamic, efficient, and nimble enhanced-modulus carbon frame boasts a taller head tube for a head's-up fit and long-term comfort. Kestrel's EMH carbon fork damps vibrations and corners with authority. A set of speedy Oval Concepts wheels equipped with Vittoria tires hug the road for incredible cornering and precise handling. An Oval Concepts/Shimano Ultegra 22-speed drivetrain shifts crisply and authoritatively while Ultegra dual-pivot brakes deliver excellent control. What's more, the RT-1000 boasts Kestrel's aero EMS carbon seatpost, a Prologo saddle and a collection of Oval Concepts parts for excellent ergonomics.
