The Kestrel Legend 105 Road Bike indeed lives up to its name. If value-packed, fast and furious performance on the road is what you seek then the Legend delivers on all counts. The Legend is made from a special blend of 700k and 800k high modulus carbon fiber. While the 700k material is incredibly stiff, the 800k carbon is 30% stiffer. This allows Kestrel to use 20% less material in the production of the frame. Combining two modulus carbon fibers enables Kestrel to build a frame that blends stiffness and compliance while helping keep weight down. In addition, both the BB30 press fit bottom bracket shell and the tapered head tube further enhance frame stiffness. 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. The Legend is the complete package - designed to be stiff and efficient, agile, aggressive, while still being comfortable ride.

Such a stellar frameset deserves a quality build which is why there's a complement of Shimano 105 11-speed components: shift/brake levers, derailleurs, and cassette. These components are renowned for their dependability and durability plus deliver precision gear changes. The Oval Concepts 520 crankset features mid-compact 52/36T chainrings that are paired with an 11-28T cassette for a full range of gears to tackle any terrain you might encounter. The Oval Concepts 527 alloy wheels are topped with stellar Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick tires. To round out this top notch build, the Legend features Oval Concepts handlebar, stem, and seatpost.
