Kuota Kiral review

Kuota introduces its first top-end sportive bike

Kuota Kiral

Cycling Weekly Verdict

All in all, badging the Kiral as a sportive bike is almost doing it a disservice. It’ll suit plenty of riders who are still out there giving it the berries, even if they are no longer fit enough to get a contract. If you’re looking for an all-round performance bike, which offers reasonable comfort then you can’t go far wrong… on the proviso that you have a straight pedalling action and don’t have large feet.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Actually a good all-round bike, not just for sportives

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Chainstay clearance for rider's feet
