Kinesis Decade bike range gets its own website

10 years of Kinesis bikes marked with Decade range and new website

Kinesis launched the Decade range of bikes back at the CORE bike show, celebrating their 10 years of UK frame design – now they've added a Decade website too.

There are three bikes in the Decade range the Tripster, Convert2 and Virsa Prestige. Adapatability is the key to all of them, but we're not talking hybrids here more bike formats that can be adapted to do a number of different things well (in a similar vein to Cotic's Roadrat). All three bikes will take different wheel sizes and tyre configurations.

The Tripster is primarily designed as a fast commuter, but could be turned into a cyclo-cross bike, or tourer, or singlespeed. The Convert2 with its 'Swopout' dropouts can either be a stripped down fixed or singlespeed or could be run as a Winter bike with gears, or any of the combinations in between. The Virsa Prestige is a steel mountain bike that also has a Swopout dropout so can be run with either gears or as a singlespeed.

To celebrate Kinesis UK's first decade the first batch of all three bikes feature a Ltd Edition 10 Years decal on the seat tube.

The new Decade site features pretty much all the information you are likely to need on the three bikes in the Decade range: the Tripster, Convert 2 and the Virsa Prestige – there's lot more too including the story of how the Virsa Prestige came to be so called and why anyone who has one of the first 50 made has a real rarity on their hands.

There's also a news section and an 'apparel' section showcasing Decades range of t-shirts. All the t-shirts feature the artwork of Adi Gilbert, who also did the artwork for the decals on the bikes too. Proceeds from the red Stay Strong design go to the Stephen Murray Benefit Fund.'s founder and first editor, nowadays to be found riding a spreadsheet. Tony's journey in cycling media started in 1997 as production editor and then deputy editor of Total Bike, acting editor of Total Mountain Bike and then seven years as editor of Cycling Plus. He launched his first cycling website - the Cycling Plus Forum at the turn of the century. In 2006 he left C+ to head up the launch team for Bike Radar which he edited until 2008, when he co-launched the multi-award winning - finally handing on the reins in 2021 to Jack Sexty. His favourite ride is his ‘commute’ - which he does most days inc weekends and he’s been cycle-commuting since 1994. His favourite bikes are titanium and have disc brakes, though he'd like to own a carbon bike one day.
