KINESIS G2

Kinesis G2 – “Go To”

Following the huge success of the Tripster, Kinesis wanted to offer an ultra versatile bike that blurred the line between an adventure bike and a “Road Plus” bike – in that it was equally suited to both on and off-road riding, but still incredibly practical when it comes to strapping on luggage, taking larger volume tyres, or adding mudguards etc.  And with the G2 they have certainly succeeded!  And we are not the only fans – for a round up of independent reviews just have a look at our “in review” feature on the G2 here >>

“Both on and off road, the handling feels assured and inspires confidence. If you don’t push it, it’ll happily tick over the miles as well as any endurance road bike. Give the G2 some hustle and it will ride with real gusto. The harder you push it, the more fun it feels. Zipping around some forest singletrack, the handling was scalpel sharp” ADVNTR.CC

The Kinesis G2 is nimble, fast handling and plenty tough enough for the rough and tumble of UK gravel riding, but it’s also a great bike for fast riding over paved roads – especially when the surface gets rough, wet, or pot-holed.  The G2 is a classic do-it-all bike – more capable than a road bike; more comfortable than a ‘cross bike; more versatile for everyday use than an out-and-out adventure bike.

The new G2 offers brilliant performance that is fun on off-road trails and fast and pleasantly comfortable on the road. Road.CC

Two decades of bike design have taught Kinesis to never stand still and to question everything they see and do to make better product for riders.  What worked ten years ago may not be suitable for today’s rider, so their range is constantly evolving.  This has lead to the new ‘Kinesis Rider Fit Design’ process.  A semi sloping frame on the smallest bike has not only reduced the stand over height but has also brought the comfort in line with our larger models.

Short chain-stays alongside a revised position with a slightly lower head-tube, shorter chain stays and a slightly longer reach than the more loaded-adventure focused Tripsters, gives the G2 outstanding road characteristics.  40c tyre clearance (38c with a full mudguard) and the low bottom bracket make the G2 extremely capable off road.  While flared handlebars, short stem and full rack mounts mean the Kinesis G2 bike is ready for adventure.
