Kinesis Tripster AT gravel bike review

The Kinesis Tripster AT takes the proven geometry of the Tripster ATR and migrates it to a brand new alloy frame designed for off-road adventures

Migrating to an aluminium platform, the longstanding titanium favourite Tripster ATR has become more affordable in its new material. Our model impressed us no end, with bang up to date new features that increase the versatility it offers and earn it a home in the Editor's Choice collection of 2017.

Kinesis’s new Tripster AT is the UK brand’s latest frameset designed for the developing gravel bike market, with the AT standing for All Terrain. It builds on Kinesis’s off-road experience with its titanium Tripster ATR2, a £1850 adventure frame, offering the same geometry but in a less expensive alloy frame, with the frame and fork priced at £699.99.
