Are ready for longer rides, but need a balance of comfort and performance? The Kestrel RT-1000 is a great choice for endurance road riders who like to stretch out their mileage on the weekends, ride Gran Fondos, or who simply want a fast bike, but without the aggressive body position. The Kestrel RT-1000 105 road bike features a full carbon frame and fork, Shimano 105 11-speed components, and Oval Concepts 527 wheels. A close cousin to the Kestrel Legend, but with more relaxed geometry, the RT-1000 boasts Kestrel’s aerodynamic DNA and is, therefore, plenty fast; yet offers greater comfort over longer distances. The geometry features a taller head tube that puts the rider in a more upright position to ease back fatigue, a longer wheelbase that increases stability, and a slightly sloping top tube that allows the rider to mount and dismount more easily. 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, yet also designed to offer a bit more compliance. A tapered head tube enhances lateral stiffness for excellent steering precision. Shimano 105 11-speed components bring efficiency and ergonomics to the RT-1000, along with the versatility of a Shimano 105 compact crankset. Oval Concepts 527 wheels and Vittoria Zaffiro Pro 25c wide tires deliver dependable performance and grip. A set of Shimano 105 brakes supply dependable braking performance and a ZIPP Service Course finishing kit make the Legend shine like no other.Features: Kestrel Enhanced Modulus Hybrid EMH carbon frame and tapered fork Shimano 105 11-speed components Oval Concepts 527 aero rims ZIPP Service Course bar and stem Each of the frame sizes has unique tube lengths, diameters, shapes, and carbon layups to produce the best possible ride quality for every size rider

The Super Glider from Glide Bikes is the most versatile bike in our line-up containing features found in quality bicycles costing twice as much. This multi-purpose folding bike is constructed from lightweight 6061 aluminum alloy making it both strong and very portable. The Super Glider is designed for both kids and adults whether they already know how to ride a bike or if they’re just learning. Thanks to it’s highly adjustable telescopic handle bar system and seat post, Super Glider can be custom fit to most people from age 10 and up. It can be used solely as a balance bike to teach balance, strengthen motor skills, and coordination or as a traditional bicycle with a convenient folding design. Other applications include rehabilitation and physical therapy as well as helping those with special needs. The low step-through frame and pedal free capability allows patients with leg, hip, or foot injuries to slowly increase the weight placed on the injured area and have the ability to get around during recovery. If the Super Glider is going to be used in it’s balance bike or “Glide” mode, the pedals easily fold out of the way and adjustable foot pegs can be swiveled into place with a tool-free quick release clamp. We also made the entire pedal and crank assembly removable by removing one bolt and one master chain link. This would be useful to save a few extra pounds if the bike is only going to be used as a glider/balance bike. This option also allows the bike to be ridden legally on sidewalks in most places. With the pedal assembly installed or removed, the Super Glider folds easily into a transportable size package in seconds without any tools. This unique feature allows the bike to fit in a closet at your workplace, car trunk, or packed up for air, rail, or bus travel. So whether your a newcomer to the two-wheeled scene or an avid cyclist needing a good portable bike to seek new adventures, Super Glider has you covered.
