The Aithein disc frame is made from Kinesium tubing and shaped using SPF [super plastic forming] technique to fine tune the tubing for a balance of stiffness and strength at the lowest possible weight.
The seat tube at the core of the frame is optimised for lateral stiffness for maximum power transfer.
To get the benefits from extra disc brake power we’ve provided more tyre clearance - up to 28mm for more rubber on the road for more grip, less rolling resistance and a little more comfort too.
We’ve tuned the geometry also for a little more stability adding to the fun factor of this fast road bike.
The Aithein disc frame now features full internal routing in the Downtube for a much cleaner look, to achieve this a special new BB design with integrated ports for the internal routing providing clean routing with low weight.
We have also gone back to the dependable threaded BB standard.
The inboard rear disc mount is cold forged and very minimal to accept the new flat mount brakes, an adapter to post mount is included.
To match the new frame we have the new tapered full carbon monocoque disc fork with post mount and internal hose routing with weight of 450g.
Kinesis has kept everything we loved about the Aithein and added disc brakes.
Incredibly, chainstay length stays the same (405mm) while giving room for 28mm tyres.
