Details

Sink your claws into that podium spot and never let go with Kestrel's Talon Road. Its monocoque-carbon frame is light and stiff for excellent power transfer and handling. Plus, it features airfoil-shaped tubes, a rear-wheel cutout in the seat tube and internal cable routing for an aero advantage, even more efficiency and maximum free speed. Up front, Kestrel's EMS Pro SL carbon fork smooths the road and lets you corner like never before. This slick aero machine rolls on a fine set of Oval Concepts wheels, while its trusty Oval Concepts/Shimano 105 compact drivetrain means easier climbing and the Tektro brakes spell excellent control. You also get a sleek stem, handlebar, and saddle from Oval Concepts, Kestrel's aero EMS Pro seatpost, and even Vittoria tires to rule the road.

      I bought a kestrel 4000 the first ever one-piece carbon fiber frame ever made and i still have it to day and love it! many miles on it could use a paint job but still in great shape! I own three kestrels now and love them all.
