Showcasing the latest SPF (SuperPlastic Formed) tubing, Kinesis UK has been working with Kinesis International on a new time trial frame, the KT-415.

SPF has been used to construct the front triangle, a process that allows for aero shapes to be created with thin wall, lightweight tubing, previously not obtainable with the Hydroforming process.

The top tube is wider at the head tube for stiffness and tapers towards the seat tube, a tube that has also taken advantage of the new process and is shaped to snugly hug the rear wheel. Carbon seatstays finish off the new frame and a Kinesis Energy fork with aero aluminium crown and legs is used up front.

A new aero carbon-fibre post adds the final touch.

Available in 47cm to 59cm sizes, in 3cm increments, and in one colour, steel grey, the KT-415 frameset retails for £549 for the frame, fork, headset and post.
