Kestrel Bikes (Up to $650 OFF!)

Kestrel 2018 Talon X Ultegra $400 OFF Bike

Manufacturer: Kestrel

MSRP: $ 2,300. Our price: $ 1,899 with FREE USA-48 State Shipping! The All-New Talon X is constructed using the highest grade 800K high-modulus carbon fiber for a light, but incredibly strong platform. Kestrel\'s 800K carbon uses inner polyurethane molds in high-stress areas such as the BB shell and head tube to minimize wrinkles in the carbon layers for greater compaction, resulting in the lightest and highest performing frame possible. The geometry is ideally suited for road and triathlon use and uses a tapered head tube which enhances lateral stiffness for excellent steering precision. The full carbon KSL fork is shaped to match the aerodynamics of the downtube. PF30 bottom bracket maximizes frame stiffness at the crank.

Kestrel: The first, the most experienced, & best priced carbon bike brand. Kestrel was there first in carbon over, and over, and over: 1986 The world’s first bladder-molded monocoque carbon frame structures. 1987 The world’s first all-carbon composite bike frame: the Kestrel 4000. 1988 The world’s first all-carbon mountain bike frame: the Kestrel MX-Z. 1989 The world’s first all-carbon triathalon frame: the KM40. 1999 The world’s first all-carbon frame modeled completely with CAD software. 2001 The world’s first all-carbon molded one piece road handlebars: the EMS. 2003 Kestrel’s first major international victory: Chris McCormack at the Ironman. 2008 Kestrel purchased by the 4th largest USA bike comglomerate, ASI. 2011 Kestrel’s first Protour sponsorship: Tour De France winner Carlos Sastre, Denny Menchov, and Juan Jose Cobo (who won the Tour of Spain on a Kestrel RT-1000!) 2013 The launch of the lightest Kestrel ever: the 1.7 pound Legend SL. 2018: The launch of the fully redesigned Talon-X and RT-1100-Road-Disc models, and the return of Kestrel to carbon mountain bikes 30 years after inventing them.
