Kestrel Legend 105 Road Bike - 2015 Model - No Shipping Charge Features of the Kestrel Legend Road Bicycle with Shimano 105 Components: What makes a bike a Legend? An ultra-light frame - the lightest Kestrel ever produced - built with uncompromising stiffness tempered with just the right amount of compliance. The result is an unbelievably fast, aggressive, yet smooth ride.
800K high-modulus carbon fiber has a groundbreaking weight-to-stiffness ratio. Weight of the raw Legend SL frame is only 780g (55cm). Meticulously constructed with inner polyurethane molds in key areas, such as the bottom bracket shell and head tube, to smooth the fibers and control resin content, creating the lightest and strongest frame possible-from the inside out. The result is a lively, resilient ride feel. Similar construction for the fork uses an EPS foam mold to smooth and compact the fibers throughout, especially in the crown area, allowing the fork to be fine-tuned for rigidity with a touch of compliance. The down tube joins the tapered (1-1/8 - 1-1/2) head tube to increase lateral stiffness in the front end for excellent steering precision. The BB30 bottom bracket increases the frame's stiffness at the crank, and asymmetrical chainstays offset drivetrain torque for maximum power transfer. Geometry is fast and aggressive, with a super-low head tube for an aerodynamic position, but with wheelbase and head tube angles optimized for powering through long rides.
