Kyklos Featherweight: First ride review

Kyklos Featherweight
Cycling Weekly Verdict

Its price is going to be hard to swallow for some, especially as there is no heavyweight brand behind the scenes, but it's an ace ride. It wafts up hills, canters on the flat and eats downhills for breakfast. In my opinion, it's amazing and shows that Kyklos won't just be a flash in the pan.

The Featherweight is the middle brother in the Kyklos range. Its younger brother, the Feather, got the thumbs up with its pairing of compliance and stiffness, so we're pleased to discover riding the Featherweight also impressed. It's especially good for a long day in the saddle, yet ready to lead the gallop.

The Featherweight is a combination of monocoque and tube-to-tube assembly from a high carbon modulus T1000 mix, and at 960g for the frameset it's most definitely worthy of its name.
