Kestrel 4000 Pro SL Shimano Ultegra
The draw: Agile demeanor

Handling feels lightning fast and reactive—this bike is not a steady cruiser, and controlling it requires attention, but it can corner with rapid agility. This is an extremely high-performance frame at the price point, and the component spec is solid, although far from a complete Ultegra build, as the name would imply. The aerobars offer a broad range of reach adjustment, helping the 4000 Pro SL suit many different riding styles and positions.
