Introducing the new Kinesis R2 – a modern road frameset designed for riders seeking a balanced blend of speed and versatility.

Drawing on two decades of aluminium frame design, we crafted the R2 with a lightweight double-butted 6061 alloy tube blend, delivering a responsive and agile ride. High-quality alloy frames offer superior ride quality compared to lower-end carbon frames.

Our meticulous weld quality and attention to detail are standard. The internal down tube cable routing keeps the R2 looking clean and makes servicing practical. The custom full UD carbon fork at the front minimizes weight and dampens road vibrations while maintaining precise and responsive handling. Additionally, rack and guard mounts enable year-round riding, and the frame provides ample clearance for larger tyres with full guards.

The R2 frameset has been praised by Cycling Plus magazine for its "understated class and excellent ride quality" and by for its "instant zing when pressing the pedals." Looking for instant zing? Look no further.
