The all New Kestrel RT-1100 Road Bike
Kestrel Bicycles (USA) – Endurance riders that seek a fast, but comfortable platform to tackle a gran fondo, Saturday morning group ride, or a fast blast after work.

The RT-1100 is the endurance cyclist's ultimate tool when the miles stack up. Utilizing the latest technology in frame construction, the RT-1100 is light, fast, and efficient. Disc brakes offer the highest level of control regardless of the weather.

  • The All-New RT-1100 is constructed using our 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
  • KSL Superlight Carbon construction using polyurethane molds to optimize compaction, reducing weight and increasing frame stiffness
  • The geometry places the rider in a slightly more upright riding position and uses a tapered 1 1/8""-1 1/2"" head tube which enhances lateral stiffness for excellent steering precision
  • The full carbon KSL fork is shaped to match the aerodynamics of the downtube. Flat mount disc brake and 12mm thru axle improve steering control and stopping performance
  • PF30 bottom bracket maximizes frame stiffness at the crank
  • Oversized and shaped downtube increases stiffness at key areas to optimize power transfer
  • Shaped seat stays provide increased compliance for more comfort over uneven road surfaces
  • Asymmetrically shaped chain stays are designed to improve lateral stiffness and power transfer
  • KSL aero seat post offers reversibility to allow the rider perfect fitment for road or triathlon use
  • Integrated seat post clamp offers a cleaner aesthetic and improved aerodynamics
  • Each of frame size has unique tube lengths, diameters, shapes, and carbon layups to produce the best possible ride quality for every size rider
  • Sram’s RED eTap HRD wireless shifting offers best-in-class shift performance
  • Sram HRD hydraulic disc brakes provide consistent repeatable stopping regardless of the weather conditions
  • Quarq’s Prime carbon ready crank is lightweight and offers incredible shift performance. It easily adapts to record power with the Quarq power meter (sold separately)
  • Zipp Service Course SL handlebar and stem provide premium performance
