The ‘Tripster ATR’ is a brand new concept for the Kinesis UK range. ‘ATR’ stands for Adventure. Tour. Race.
The Tripster ATR is designed to meet the needs of a fast growing, new-breed of riders who require one bike that will perform across many disciplines and types of terrain.
Use it for adventure cycling, distance racing, touring, sportives or cyclocross.

The quality of this frameset is excellent. I wanted a disc bike for long distance cycling and this Tripster ATR Ti is just right, it is comfortable and also very stable. Very happy with it.
Great frame! Have built it up and have over 300km's on it in the first week. Beautiful frame with great welds and really nice stable geometry, will be a favourite for long gravel grinds.
Initial Impressions are positive. Looks wise, the bike is stunning. Everyone wants a sexy bike, and while the Tripster doesn't have the curb appeal of a carbon racer, it's still a getter. Weight is around 9.3 KG with a middling part spec. Only a handful of rides so far and I like the feel. Still working to get the fit dialed in. I look forward to thousands of miles of joy and suffering. It's definitely stiff enough for the beer league 'cross circuit. And the mud guard mounts will make it my preferred commuter. Titanium is forever.
Absolutely stunning ride. Smooth, responsive. I could not be happier.
Finally built this up. Absolutely stunning ride, makes me wish I was a better rider! Right for my style of riding, bridleways, bit of singletrack and road. It's fast and capable of everything tackled so far. Great service as always from Merlin and best price.
