Emma Osenton

Emma is a character that will surprise you with her 'can-do' attitude to her cycling. Originally a member of the collaborative Kinesis-Morvelo Project race and social media team, she has been a fan of Kinesis frames, in particular Titanium, for many years.. 

The places she'll go...

Emma jokes about her lack of off-road skills, but the places she takes her drop handlebars on the Tripster ATR would leave most people walking. A fan of the Three Peaks Cyclo cross epic she loves to showcase outlandish dress sense and use her experience to beat fitter riders.

Often enjoying a role as a ride guide, Emma has also been a regular innovator of events like City Cross and Aggregate100. Her creative and often alternative viewpoint keeps everyone on their toes.

The inspiration for Fernweh

In 2018 Emma embarked on a unique challenge, a little known bike-packing race, the Grenzsteintrophy. The route follows a historical border between the former West and East Germany, riding on an over-grown and often broken up concrete tank road that was used to patrol the border. The journey required a unique Kinesis build featuring the Titanium SYNC hardtail frame coupled with a Lauf mountain bike fork for comfort. The mental and physical scars from the journey will probably last a long time but at least Emma has even more to talk about down the pub now.
