Kinesis UK releases the Tripster AT

The Tripster AT is the new adventure bike from Kinesis UK.

The bike shares the same DNA and evolved geometry as the ATR.v2 but at a significantly more accessible price point. It is engineered from Kinesis’ own lightweight hydroformed Kinesium alloy tubing and CEN tested to pass the tough mountain bike frame standard. It sports a new frame profile designed for better fitting of bike packing bags and withstanding heavy off-road abuse when the frame is loaded for travel.  

The multi-port cable routing can take both a mechanical or a Di2; the frame also features bottle cage mounts with dual position down tube mounting for reach and frame-bag versatility and will take 700 x 45c or 650b x 52c tyres comfortably.

During the Tripster AT’s development, Kinesis UK started working with the late Mike Hall; this frame was the starting point for what was to become a more involved relationship working on his own bike design ideas. Hall brought some of his bike packing knowledge to the Tripster AT – such as the graphic details – in close consultation with Kinesis UK’s in-house designer Matt Gray.

The Tripster AT is available to pre-order now with first stocks set to arrive in the second week of July.
