Kestrel RT-1000 105 Flat Bar Road Bike - 2017. The Kestrel RT-1000 flat bar road bike breaks down this barrier and marries incredible aerodynamic design and high performance components with ergonomic grips, a slightly wider width Prologo saddle, and an Oval Concepts flat handlebar to deliver less body fatigue and more fun. The Kestrel RT-1000 105 flat bar road bike features a full carbon frame and fork, Shimano 105 11-speed components, and Oval Concepts 327 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 327 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 stem and Oval flat bar provide added comfort.
