The Rider

The RT-1000 is the ideal choice for enthusiast or endurance road riders who like to stretch out their mileage on the weekends, ride Gran Fondos, who may have back problems, or who simply want a top-of-the-line machine but without the race geometry.

The Bike

A close cousin to the Legend but with more relaxed geometry, the RT-1000 boasts Kestrel's aerodynamic DNA and is, plenty fas-yet offers greater comfort over longer distances.

The Tech

  • 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.
  • Tapered 1 1/8"-1.5"head tube enhances lateral stiffness for excellent steering precision.
  • Endurance 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.
  • BB30 bottom bracket maximizes frame stiffness at the crank.
  • Proprietary Kestrel H-Stays-the uniquely, asymmetrically shaped seat stays and chainstays-are designed to improve lateral stiffness and power transfer, while also supplying vibration dampening.
  • The stays, seat post, and seat tube are aerodynamically contoured; fully internal cable routing ensures clean airflow over the entire bike.
  • Each of the six sizes has unique tube lengths, diameters, shapes, and carbon layups to produce the best possible ride quality for every size rider.
