R1 Road Bike


BIKE TEST WINNER
Cycling Plus - Jan 2020

"Our winner is – at the time of writing – the first Kinesis R1 in the UK. Based on its lively ride feel, up-to-date 1x drivetrain, simplicity and execution, it’s a deserved winner.

Riding year round in whatever the weather gods throw at you is hard enough, but the R1 feels fresh and a very capable and rewarding place to be."

£1,500.00

The R1 is the latest complete bike from Kinesis UK, following on the success of the G2 complete gravel bike and heavily influenced by our award winning Kinesis RTD and 4S road frames. The R1 is a 1x road bike aimed riders of all abilities and experiences.

With the MTB and Cyclocross bikes now firmly entrenched with 1x and the burgeoning Gravel scene going the same way, we’ve seen many road riders experimenting and using 1x Road set ups, including many members of the KinesisUK Team.

The R1 is aimed at the cyclist craving simplicity, reliability and the capability a 1x drivetrain can offer: in short a bike they can just get on and ride and have fun.

The R1 would make a great everyday road bike with an easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain drivetrain for their commute, their spins into the countryside and their trip to cafe. With this in mind we have specified the R1 with true ride-anywhere gear ratios, more than enough for the steepest climbs and the fastest descent.

We’ve also specified room for a 30c tyre with full mudguards, and mounts for a pannier rack. The R1 features our Kinesis Rider Fit Geometry to give better fit and more consistent handling for a wider range of riders. The smallest size has a semi sloping top tube for greater seat post extension increasing the comfort. Longer reaches (recommended for use with shorter stems) mean there is less toe overlap on the smaller sizes and improves the handling on the larger sizes eliminating the need to run a long stem to achieve the correct fit.

Bikes will be available from Jan 2020.

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.
