kinesis tripster ace
Overall Score
A refreshing take for genuinely fun road cycling with powerful disc brakes a bonus
Not so comfortable for taking long distance, with upright position putting more weight on your backside

Punted as an all rounder, capable of everything from cyclocross to distance racing and adventure cycling, the Kinesis Tripster Ace has a lot to live up to.

ACE stands for Adventure, Commute, Explore and this flat barred road going machine certainly delivers on all three levels. You could also add fun to that list too. It is fast, light and capable of handling all sorts of riding with aplomb. Disc brakes give confidence in your speed, while the flat bars give a more open stance for rougher ground where necessary and a more relaxed riding position.

The 6061 aluminium frame and carbon fork are beautifully finished while the Shimano Sora gearing and Tektro brakes are get down to their business without fuss or unnecessary bling. 700c wheels with 35mm rugged tyres round off a very do-it-all spec.
