Performance Honed Chassis
Each and every tube shape on the FR was meticulously theorized, modeled, and tested in order to achieve both the optimal performance characteristics demanded by cycling’s top athletes and the ride quality revered by riders the world over. From its asymmetrical chainstays crafted to precisely balance the rider’s pedaling forces with the inherent effects of a drivetrain, to its rear triangle and fork developed to mitigate road chatter in order to reduce rider fatigue, every millimeter of the FR frameset was finely sculpted in excruciating detail. Featuring the most refined layups in our history and TeXtreme carbon fiber, the FRD, Advanced, and Performance iterations of the FR set a new standard for lightweight road bikes. The aluminum version is no slouch either, featuring a SuperLite aluminum frame paired with an Advanced-level carbon fork. More so than any other road bike in Felt’s history, the FR is the embodiment of form following function.
MODERN ROAD RACE GEOMETRY
Felt’s flagship road race bike has always been defined by an aggressive geometry that exceeds the demands of the world’s fastest and most technically demanding racecourses. Head and seat angles honed from decades of feedback from the world’s top professional racers ensure that the FR possesses the most intuitive handling available, while at the same time providing a stable ride quality. And because an efficient rider is a powerful rider, the FR’s geometry is optimized to suit the fit needs of nearly all riders. This empowers every rider to achieve his or her most efficient position possible so that no watt is wasted.
Disc brakes are the new standard in road bike technology, providing increased stopping power, enhanced modulation and better performance in both adverse weather conditions and ideal riding conditions compared to rim brakes. For racers and performance-focused riders, disc brakes also improve handling and overall control, which allows you to carry speed through turns for a more fluid riding experience. No matter your age, fitness level, body size or even where you ride, disc brakes provide numerous benefits over traditional rim caliper brakes. Available on select FR models.
