Kestrel Rt1000 Road Bike – 2015 Shimano Dura-Ace
Kestrel RT1000 Road Bike – 2015 Shimano Dura-Ace. Outstanding comfort and the latest technology…what more could you ask for? The 2015 Kestrel RT1000 road bike with Dura-Ace 9000 delivers on all fronts, for performance, comfort and speed. 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. Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 11-speed is more than a mouthful; it’s the preferred weapon against the competition. With Dura-Ace 9000, Shimano moves to the next generation with authority. Reduced shifting effort lets you concentrate on riding. There’s more control thanks to improved ergonomics and the unbeatable reliability and durability should give you every bit of confidence. A compact 50/34 Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 Crankset and 11/28 cassette were chosen to deliver massive amounts of power directly into the frame, while allowing for a comfortable cadence no matter the grade. Together, these components minimize weight to maximize your overall performance. Oval Concepts 950F carbon/alloy clinchers have a 46mm rim height for increased aerodynamics and stiffness under acceleration. These wheels, outfitted with Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX tires with low rolling resistance, are perfect for criteriums or bunch sprints to the finish line. Wrench down on the Oval Concepts 910 SL ergonomic pro carbon handlebar and every effort will be rewarded with miles per hour.
