The R1 is the latest complete bike from Kinesis UK, following on the success of the G2 complete gravel bike and heavily influenced by our award winning Kinesis RTD and 4S road frames. The R1 is a 1x road bike aimed riders of all abilities and experiences.

With the MTB and Cyclocross bikes now firmly entrenched with 1x and the burgeoning Gravel scene going the same way, we’ve seen many road riders experimenting and using 1x Road set ups, including many members of the Kinesis UK Team.

The R1 is aimed at the cyclist craving simplicity, reliability and the capability a 1x drivetrain can offer: in short a bike they can just get on and ride and have fun.

The R1 would make a great everyday road bike with an easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain drivetrain for their commute, their spins into the countryside and their trip to the cafe. With this in mind we have specified the R1 with true ride-anywhere gear ratios, more than enough for the steepest climbs and the fastest descent. The R1 is fitted with drop handlebars with slightly wider bars than you would usually find on a road bike, and they also have a 10 degree flare. Wider bars give more ride control and capacity for bar bags (bike packing) which are very popular now on day rides even. Plus plenty of room for your handlebar furniture (lights, GPS, bell, Phone bracket etc)

We’ve also specified room for up to 34c tyres (brand depending), or 30c tyres with full mudguards and mounts for a pannier rack. The R1 features our Kinesis Rider Fit Geometry to give better fit and more consistent handling for a wider range of riders. The smallest size has a semi sloping top tube for greater seat post extension increasing the comfort. Longer reaches (recommended for use with shorter stems) mean there is less toe overlap on the smaller sizes and improves the handling on the larger sizes eliminating the need to run a long stem to achieve the correct fit.
