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.
