ATR V3


Destined for Worldwide Adventure.


New Kinesis rider fit geometry. New Kinesis ‘Range’ adventure fork with cargo mounts. All new tube set with Internal cable routing and now coloured laser etching. The new ATR vol.3 titanium bike frame is our most advanced adventure bike frameset ever.

£2,200.00



Destined for Worldwide Adventure.



The ATR legacy is built upon foundations of exploration, new experiences, and expanding horizons.

The new ATR vol.3 titanium bike frame is more beautiful and more capable than ever, thanks to several refinements over the much-loved and highly respected v2, and the addition of our new carbon Range fork with additional load carrying ability.

The ATR is designed with input from our Kinesis UK ambassadors across the globe, informing the details that make a difference out on the road and trail. So whether your next journey is a Himalayan expedition or a British local overnighter, the ATR vol.3 adventure bike frameset is the perfect complement to your spirit of adventure.

New Tube Set: Cold drawn seamless 3Al/2.5V titanium tubing and machined headtube, for ultimate strength and rider comfort.

New Kinesis Range Fork: Newly designed load carrying carbon fork for even bigger adventure. As with the frame, compatible with 700x45c tyres.

New Seatstay/Seattube Junction: Greater weld area for additional strength and improved aesthetics.

Improved Cable Routing: Exit window on downtube and cable outer stops replace the downtube opening and plastic cable guide for lower maintenance. Frame compatible with all mechanical and electronic groupsets.

GW Switch Lever Thru Axles: Clean and simple design with a removable lever.

New Laser Etched Decal: A touch of custom styling and colour on the minimal branding.

Anti-Shock Tuning: Flattened seat stays for improved vibration damping.

Kinesis Rider Fit Geometry: Better fit and more consistent handling for a wider range of riders. Two smallest sizes have a semi sloping top tube for greater seat post extension and greater comfort. Longer reaches (recommended for use with shorter stems) mean there is less toe overlap on smaller sizes.

Choosing the correct bike size for you depends on the type of bike your after, your height, your riding style, and your preference of fit.

A correct fitting bike will provide a more comfortable, more efficient and more fun ride.

Kinesis’s bike size guide gives you some general advice on choosing the right size. It is a guide only and we always recommend visiting one of our stores or contacting one of our experts from our contact us page.

To get started, think about your style of riding, measure your height and see the sizing guide below.

GRIT CX - REVIEW


"A genuinely great all-rounder, with the DNA of one of the original do-it-all framesets. … solid practicality and a predictable, fun ride.
You probably already know whether you want one…you are highly unlikely to be disappointed. …it will be a sorely missed member of the grit test fleet."

"The ATR feels efficient and smooth, without being flexy"

Review Submission by Tom Searby - August 2017


Hi Kinesis,
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the support during the Transcontinental Race and designing such a great bike.
My ATR Tripster had a lot of fun bouncing around the cobbles, tracks and rough roads of Eastern Europe, without a single mechanical! (one puncture 35k from the final parcour excluded).
Such a great bike and I look forward to entering her into some gravel races over the autumn.

Many Thanks
Tom Searby (cap 163)

This is a capable and beautiful titanium all-rounder that offers a great ride on or off road.

Bikes Etc:

Out on the open road it had no problem keeping up with a group of slick-tyred roadies, and when the tarmac ended, that long wheelbase and low bottom bracket gave our novice off-roader the confidence to keep up with the faster MTB riders.
If you ever worried 40mm tyres were slow, think again.
Some credit for that must also go to the fantastic brakes which have a unique, and much-loved lever shape.
No doubt about it, the Tripster is exactly the kind of bike we’d like to own – confident, fun-loving and versatile thanks to its copious ground clearance and rack mounts. With a frame and fork starting at £1,500, it needn’t be all that expensive either, although the build here has really sparked our imagination.


Conclusion:
The Tripster inspires confidence whatever the road surface, and has enough tyre clearance to really play it fast and loose….
…it opened our eyes to how much great riding we’ve missed on our doorstep, which is exactly what these bikes are all about.

Conclusion


URBAN Cyclist:

“Tripster ATR frameset must be on your shortlist.”


…the Tripster is well equipped to handle weekdays to work and pretty much anything else at the weekend. Clearly, this ATR has been designed to last.

We’ve built our test frame into a fast, do-it-all machine with big volume slicks, carbon disc wheels and cockpit from Zipp and a Brooks saddle.
It’s slightly eclectic, and it certainly isn’t a cheap build, but it weighs in at less than 9kg (58cm) and its range of abilities is simply incredible.

…a lower bottom bracket than a ’crosser which makes it stable and swift handling on-road but get off the beaten path and the slightly more relaxed ’cross-derived head angle makes it comfortable over bumps and rough surfaces.

With hundreds of miles beneath its wheels already, the Tripster ATR is a frameset we’d be happy to use anywhere: on towpaths and byways and even off-road trails with the right tyres. With a set of slicks fitted, we’d be happy to take it on an audax or tour, too. If you are looking for a true do-everything bike with exciting levels of performance, then the beautifully put together

Verdict
If you love mixed riding and want something that’s exotic, light, fast and versatile, look no further.

KinesisUK, Decade Tripster ATR: British-designed bike for all conditions
There’s no denying that cyclo-cross, gravel, do-it-all bikes are really taking off at the moment. These machines try to tick as many boxes, and offer as much versatility, as possible.

It’s clear that much love has been put into this frame. The tapered head tube is a thing of real beauty, with the head badge machined directly into a solid piece of billeted 3al/2.5v titanium.
This careful attention to detail is evident throughout, all the way from the neat welds, to the curving, flowing, tapered lines, and precisely applied graphics.
What gives this bike the edge over its competition is the amount of clearance; it allows you to run up to 40mm tyres with mudguards — the equivalent of a thin mountain bike tyre.
That’s a big nod towards the versatility of this bike.

The hand-built Kinesis CX Disc wheels were a revelation in terms of their lightness, yet were surprisingly very robust. They’re not suitable for very skinny tyres, but everything else should work well.

The ride
The fast acceleration of the bike was instantly apparent — and surprising given that I was using 38mm tyres.
A long head tube and big clearance at the fork means the cockpit of the bike is high, creating a more upright riding position.
The long wheelbase provides a surefooted platform; nonetheless, the steering is direct and agile enough to inspire confidence on urban jaunts.

Conclusion
This bike is expensive, but you do get what you pay for. It is a fine example of good design and quality workmanship.
What’s more, it really will last you, and we’re talking decades — if you look after it.
As a bike to simply enjoy riding — whatever, wherever and without worrying — it’s great.
… if you enjoy a variety of cycling and only want one bike for everything, this is really worth considering.

Overall: a great bike to have in the shed


Realistically, not that many of us are going to be doing much gravel racing in the UK, which is the sort of racing the R in ATR most closely matches. Neither are many of us about to set off on a big adventure to far-flung places, although I've no doubt that this bike would be a capable companion. But if you're looking for a bike for Audaxes, Touring and general Ranting about the ATR is a brilliantly capable bike. It's lovingly made, the ride quality is excellent and it'll throw its hand at most things with only minimal changes to the build. It's not one bike for everything, but it's certainly one bike for the n+1 list.


Verdict


Capable and beautiful titanium all-rounder with a great ride
