The Kinesis Tripster AT (All Terrain) is the a new adventure bike from Kinesis UK. The new model shares the same geometry with the popular Tripster ATR titanium v2, but Kinesis dropped the ‘R’ for Race, replaced titanium with their own own lightweight hydroformed “Kinesium” alloy tubing, and greatly reduced the price point. Designed with even more tire clearance, the Tripster AT can run either 700x45mm or 650bx52mm tires with plenty of wiggle room. In addition, the development of the Tripster AT frame was the starting point of a working relationship with the late Mike Hall who brought his bikepacking knowledge to the Tripster AT and consulted on some the bike’s detailing.
Kinesis Tripster AT Frame features
- Multi-port cable routing to take both mechanical or Di2
- Triple bottle cage mounts with dual position down tube mounting for reach and frame-bag versatility
- 27.2 seat post diameter
- Rack and mudguard mounts
- Threaded BSA bottom bracket shell
- The same geometry as the beloved titanium Tripster ATR.v2
