Fantastic tyre clearance for wide tyres and mudguards

• Clearance for 30mm tyres
• Long drop 47mm - 57mm
• Sizes: 48cm- 51cm – 54cm – 55.5cm - 57cm – 60cm

Frame/’Tracer’ full-carbon monocoque, taper steerer fork/Ti Clamp/FSA taper 1.5 Headset/Anodised alloy adjusters/Stainless bottle bolts

• Totally new taper head tube. Machined from billet and engraved with ‘Kinesis UK’ icon.
• Now with clearance for 28c [depending on brand] when using full size ‘guards [refer to FAQ's 16]. Geometry is set for long-reach [47-57mm] calipers, this gives far more clearance for larger tyres.
• New ‘Tracer 1.5′ Taper 1.5, 450g, monocoque carbon fork with eyelets and clearance for full-size ‘guards and long-drop calipers.
• Tough 7mm dropouts are double-eyeletted to easily accomodate rack and mudguard stays and our own brake bridge gives maximum tyre clearance.
• Top tube is re-profiled with horizontal ovalisation, giving greater lateral stiffness when out of the saddle, complimenting the new fork and headtube.
• Down tube is Bi-ovalised where it meets the BB and Headtube.
• Increased BB drop for stability at speed, precision cornering and better fit.
• Welds at highly stressed area’s like the head tube and BB are ‘double pass’, ensuring proper penetration and a decent fillet on the second pass.
• Seat stays are curved with a 2m radius, providing silky smooth comfort over long distances. Chain stays are deep section and set wide at the BB for stability, we use ‘Bullet’ ends to finish them off perfectly.
• All eyelets are welded, not riveted, so they will never come loose. There is a ‘chain keeper’ on the RHS seat stay to neatly hold the chain when the wheel is out.
• All stops, including down tube adjusters are slotted, making cable servicing much easier, adjusters are high qual. anodised alloy. Hand brushed finish with heat cured decals.







Review Road cc


"Near superbike capabilities in a frame that is just at home on the commute, audaxing, sportives and much much more. It's a looker too".

"A great bike just got better; the tweaks that Kinesis have made to the frame have worked for the best".

"Against its competition it holds all the cards. As a frameset it's the same price as the Equilibrium Ti but handles better and is a much more exciting ride and the Sabbath September we've also tested has nowhere near the speed capabilities".

“Kinesis really has achieved the perfect balance with what is arguably — in my experience at least — a difficult material to get just right in a bike frame.”


The finish of the frame is exquisite. Compared to equivalent frames by rival Ti manufacturers it is incredibly good value.
But the main thing is that it rides superbly. If this were my bike I’d ride through the winter on this spec quite happily.
So it seems as though Kinesis really has achieved the perfect balance with what is arguably a difficult material to get just right in a bike frame.
