Kestrel RT-1000 SL Ultegra Di2 Road Bike

The Kestrel RT1000 is designed specifically for the road enthusiast who participates in Gran Fondos, weekend rides, or the occasional race. Kestrel's engineers were tasked with designing a smooth-riding bike that absorbs shock yet handles like a superior road bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Di2 Race Bike - highly recommended I took a bit of a risk as hadn't heard kestrel brand but turns out oldest carbon frame bike manufacturer in America. Honestly the quality of this bike is right up there with the best from the quality of the paint finish to the integrated cabling and sharpness of steering etc. amazing value at this price point - would recommend 18 July 2014

Answer: 
This bike 'out of the box' can only run a 10-speed cassette maximum.

However if the rear wheel were to be changed to an 11-speed compatible freehub wheel and if the entire drivetrain were also to be swapped over, then it could run an 11-speed system.
