Kinesis Racelight Granfondo Titanium V2 Frameset
For 2014, the custom Drawn Ti3AL/2.5V tube-set of the original GF_Ti has been enhanced by the addition of a beautiful new taper head tube, machined from billet titanium. The new head tube allows us to use the ‘Tracer 1.5’ monocoque carbon fork with 1.5” taper steerer and clearance for large tyres and full ‘guards. The new head tube and taper-steerer fork really transform the handling of this already superb frame.
NOW FOR ‘LONG-DROP’ 47-57mm BRAKES AND UP 28mm TYRES WITH FULL ‘GUARDS.
The outcome is a superbly finished, smooth riding frameset, designed to go the distance and last for years. If speed, comfort, distance, adaptability and durability top your list, then this true 4-season frameset is the one for you.
Features:
  • The GF_Ti is manufactured by the builders of some of the worlds best Ti frames, using top quality, Cold Worked and Stress Relieved, double-butted tubing.
  • This frame has all the touches that will help to make it a friend for life;]
  • 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.

Frameset includes:

Frame, 'Tracer’ full-carbon monocoque tapered steerer fork, Ti seatpost Clamp, FSA taper 1.5 Headset, Anodised alloy barrel adjusters and Stainless bottle bolts.

  • Please Note: UD Carbon, micro-adjust Seatpost available as extra.

General information about our shipping
Exactly as advertised, so no complaints in that respect. However the blue barrel adjuster are rubbish compared to groupset shimano ones and decals are a bit fragile. I have another manufacturers ti frame that cost less and that has a much better finish. Now the positives, handling and ride quality are excellent, much better than my previous frame that cost double this. I knew that the kinesis alloy frames are well thought of and this has similar geometry to the Racelight T2. So overall very pleased.
Very comfortable ride and well built frame. Definitely one of the best titanium sportive frames on the market.
