Speed, performance, and comfort form a perfect union in the Kestrel RT-1000 105 Road Bike. Featuring an aerodynamic carbon fiber frame/fork, a Shimano 105 11-speed drivetrain, plus a rock solid complement of Oval Concepts components, you'll have means to fully enjoy your daily riding regimen.

A close cousin to the Kestrel Legend, but with more relaxed geometry, the RT-1000 frameset boasts Kestrel's aerodynamic DNA and is, therefore, plenty fast but also ensures greater comfort over longer distances. The geometry features a taller head tube for a more upright position to ease back fatigue, a longer wheelbase that increases stability, and a slightly sloping top tube for easier mounting and dismounting. The RT-1000 is constructed of Kestrel's Enhanced Modulus Hybrid (EMH) carbon, a combination of 800K and 700K carbon fibers. It's lightweight and stiff, with stiffness enhanced by the BB30 bottom bracket shell, yet also designed to offer a bit more compliance.

Shimano 105 11-speed shift/brake levers, derailleurs, and cassette assure crisp, precision gear changes and dependable performance year in/year out. The Oval Concepts 527 alloy wheelset with Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick 700x25 tires are smooth-rolling, dependable, all-around performers. Furthermore, the Prologo OneTouch Gel 2 bar tape plus a Prologo Kappa saddle deliver all the comfort you need for sheer pedaling bliss.
