Kinesis Racelight T2 Frame
The winter training frame that other manufacturers have tried to copy, but never matched. This frame has been developed and refined over many years and has become the default choice for club riders and Pro’s over the winter months. We have also introduced a new 48cm size to suit Female and Junior riders.
The Racelight T2 has all the details that make a great winter trainer, lightweight tourer, Audax machine or year round racer; Lightweight, 7005 double butted tubing, comfortable ‘anti roadshock’ seatstays for those long winter rides, stiff responsive chainstays for great response, plenty of clearance for full size mudguards and larger winter tyres [long reach, 47/57mm brakes required], rack mounts, twin bottle cages and stunning new, tougher, dual colour, paint finishes.
Tech White/Urban Grey. Supergloss Black/Tech White. Powder Blue/Tech White.
Verdict dependable yet lively, the t2 deserves its ‘modern classic’ status.
The Kinesis T2 is something of a modern classic. It’s been around for a while and has proved very popular, helped along by being very affordable in frame-only form.
It may be a relatively inexpensive frame (?239.99), but it scores highly on detail and finish.
Touches like the flared head-tube, subtly-shaped stays and forged rear brake mount really elevate the T2 from the herd…
Those stays accommodate 28mm tyres as well as mudguards, and there are rack eyes too.
Sneaking in just under the 10kg mark, the Kinesis is an entirely acceptable weight for a winter bike, and come the summer there’s scope for some easy weight loss – take the ’guards off, swap to folding 23mm tyres. The T2 has quite a racy feel.
…the sturdy frame inspires confidence, and a lot of vibration disappears somewhere between the stays, 27.2mm seatpost and big tyres, so it’s comfortable on long rides.
