Kinesis to offer Maxlight bike range

Share:

Kinesis are now offering a range of bike build options based around their popular Maxlight frames.

The West Sussex-based company previously only offered full bikes based around their road and cyclo-cross frames, but have expanded the fleet to include mountain bikes.

Full bikes are now available for the Maxlight XC3, XCPro3, XC130 and female-specific KM22oL, with the Maxlight FF29 and a Crosslight Pro6 cyclo-cross bike to follow in 2013.

“We have worked hard on the build spec in order to get the best balance of function and value, and I really believe that we have managed to put together a package that reflects the spirit of the Maxlight frames, delivering high performance and custom looks,” said Kinesis chief Dom Mason.

All four frames are available in either SRAM X9 or X5 builds, with WTB wheels, X-Fusion forks and FSA finishing kit.

The SRAM X9-equipped Kinesis Maxlight XCPRO3 is the top-of-the-range machine at £1,649.99, based around a race-ready aluminium frame which we described as a “lightweight cross-country slayer that is about as quick as a mountain bike gets” when it formed the basis for Bikemagic’s Project Kinesis in 2011.
