Manufacturer Description

Carbon is the fiber of our DNA.

Like all living organisms, Kestrel has a genetic code, a DNA that is at the core of everything we do. We focus on four critical elements when we design our award winning bikes: fit, material, testing, and athletes.

FIT

It's all about harmony between rider and machine. We don't use "open molds" on any of our framesets, forks, or components. Using our own molds allows for total design and performance integration. The Kestrel design process begins with determining what body position will help our riders perform at their best. Kestrel's road and tri geometries have been refined over two decades with input from athletes and fit experts throughout the industry, and our geometries are designed to fit a wide range of customers: weekend riders to full-time pros.

MATERIAL

Carbon is the backbone of every Kestrel - it has been since 1986. Kestrel uses two grades of carbon: 700K & 800K. The 700K is all muscle.

And the 800K adds finesse; the lighter of the two, it's utilized in lower stress areas to achieve the lightest possible overall frame weight. Each model employs a unique blend of these two fibers to create a powerful yet lightweight bike.

TESTING

Kestrels aren't just tested in the wind tunnel; they are designed in the wind tunnel. That means if certain standards aren't reached, it's back to the drawing board. In facilities like the A2 Wind Tunnel in Charlotte, NC, the numbers don't lie. We use extensive 3-D solid model computer drawings to produce full-scale prototypes, which we meticulously review and evaluate to search for every possible tenth of a second advantage. Testing begins at 0° Yaw and goes up to 30°. Wind speeds are set at 10, 20, and 30 MPH. And unlike most companies, we test more than just the bike; we put a rider on the bike, as well as different wh
