The Kestrel Legend SL is for those seeking a top-level race bike who crave speed, but who don't want to sacrifice ride quality to get it. The Legend is perfect for stage racers, climbers, and riders who include winning in their idea of a good ride, whether it is a PR at the top of the climb or the final sprint at the line of the National Road Championships. Kestrels own blend of high modulus carbon provides the right mix of lateral stiffness for optimal power transfer, with just the right amount of vertical compliance for a smooth and comfortable ride. The Legend is 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. The result is a lively, resilient ride feel. The BB30 bottom bracket increases the frame's stiffness at the crank, and asymmetrical chainstays offset drivetrain torque for maximum power transfer. The Legend's geometry is fast and aggressive, with a super-low head tube for an aerodynamic position, but with a wheelbase and head tube angle optimized for powering through long rides.
