Experience the road bike thrill of aluminium performance with impeccable handling and all-day ride comfort. Welcome to the brand-new Kinesis R2.
R2 is a modern-day road frameset ideally suited to those looking for good pace in their ride with the added prospect of something a little more adventurous if desired.
R2 is built around the same proven frame and fork as our highly acclaimed, group test winning R1 bike which Cycling Plus magazine proclaimed had "Understated class and excellent ride quality" and BikeRadar.com said had “instant zing when pressing the pedals".
Our experience spans over two decades of aluminium frame design. Drawing on this we created the R2 with a lightweight double butted 6061 Alloy tube blend that delivers a light and responsive ride feel. Good alloy frames have rightly earned their place with a ride quality can easily trump that of cheap carbon frames. Our impeccable weld quality and attention to detail come as standard. Internal down tube cable routing keeps the R2 looking clean and the servicing practical. Rack and guard mounts open up all seasons riding, along with ample clearance for bigger tyres with full guards.
Up front our custom full “UD carbon” fork keeps weight low and takes out road buzz whilst feeling direct and accurate at all times. Jumping onboard is easy with our Kinesis “Rider Fit Geometry” which has been developed for comfortable all-day rides. A simple to understand choice of four sizes ensures a great fit for almost all rider sizes.
