Kinesis GFTI Disc frameset review

We've tested the GFTI titanium frameset from Kinesis Bikes, built up with a range of components that highlight its endurance potential.

Cycling Weekly Verdict

A nice-looking titanium frameset with a smooth ride feel and the option to deck it out for longer/tougher rides. Kinesis’s wheels and the finishing kit are all good quality too. It’s just the lack of grip from the Vee tyres that lets the side down.
