To reclaim lost market share and industry leadership, we designed an iconic family embodying Kestrel's legacy of aerodynamics and forward motion. Leading with the 4000LTD, knife-like edges, accentuated joints, and notched-out detailing create a bold, recognizable profile. We then transformed the unassuming RT1000 roadbike into an agile, elegant expression of speed. Challenging the straight-tube construction of superlights, at 780g the sculpted efficiency of our LegendSL is the lightest, stiffest Kestrel ever made.
