This is the Kestrel Legend Ultegra Road Bike. At a mere 780 grams, the brand-new Kestrel Legend is the lightest frame The First Name in Carbon Fiber has ever produced. Made of ultra high-modulus carbon fiber with a remarkable weight-to-stiffness ratio, the Legend’s Kestrel EMS fork and H-stays provide compliance, comfort, and improve lateral stiffness; the proprietary tapered head tube enhances steering precision and front-end stiffness; and asymmetrical chainstays offset drivetrain-induced torque on the rear triangle. Features: Featherweight 780 grams – lightest frame Kestrel has ever produced Ultra high-modulus and high-strength carbon fiber with ground-breaking weight-to-stiffness ratio PU inner molds supply smoother inner walls, an increase in stiffness, better compaction, minimized wrinkles, and optimized resin content EPS foam forming used in the manufacturing of the fork provides better layup in the crown area for improved compaction and resin content Kestrel EMS fork and H-stays provide compliance, comfort, and improve lateral stiffness Proprietary tapered head tube enhances steering precision and front-end stiffness Asymmetrical chainstays offset drivetrain-induced torque on the rear triangle Size-specific frame for each frame size. Larger frames use slightly larger diameter tubing for increased stiffness for larger riders. Downtube and top tube wrap around the head tube for increased front-end stiffness, which aids in steering precision. Shorter head tube for competition geometry and an aggressive riding position that pro-level competitors demand BB30 is 18 stiffer than the RT-900
Lighter, stiffer and more durable than its predecessor, there is a lot to like about the R1B carbon-fibre outsole to maintain high levels of stiffness, vital for efficient power transfer. Two Boa dials help lock your feet in and do a very good job of it. Microadjustment is possible and it’s easy to get them off quickly thanks to a quickrelease function. At a claimed 227g for a size 42.5, they are relatively lightweight compared to similarly priced rivals. A neutral footbed also means that these should suit most, if not all, foot shapes. One thing to keep an eye out for is sizing. The size 42s we had on test were a little on the large side, so it would be a good idea to try before you buy to get the perfect fit that such a big spend deserves.
For those seeking a remarkable value in a road bike look no further than the Mekk Pinerolo 2.0. Featuring classic road geometry and eye-catching graphics, it’s a true all-arounder with a triple-butted aluminum frame and carbon fiber-bladed fork providing a superb, high-performance platform. Shimano Tiagra 10-speed shifters and derailleurs plus Shimano R565 cranks are precise and reliable while the Shimano Sora brakes and HG50 cassette are rock solid performers. Shimano makes remarkable wheels as well and their R501 aluminum wheelset coupled with Continental Ultra Sport II tires ensures you’re equipped for all-around riding. Capped off with an Italian-made Selle San Marco ERA Start Power saddle, this aluminum steed is ready to fly over hill and dale or anywhere the road takes you. Mekk is the brainchild of Mark Edwards ME and Ken Knight KK , a pair of Brits with extensive experience in high-performance cycling at both the racing and production end of the spectrum.
