Triathlon is part of Felt's DNA. In 1991, the first bike we produced was for triathlon. Over the years, we've equipped world record holders, olympic champions, age-group all-stars, and those just getting into the sport. Never content with our latest bike, we are continually pushing the boundaries for greater speed, adjustability, and performance.
In the battle against the wind, the AR Series continues to be a world leader.
Designed and developed in the wind tunnel, the AR outperforms the competition in aerodynamics, weight and stiffness. The result is a bike that conquers the wind as well as the peloton.
The AR FRD is the best-performing aero road bike in the world, having delivered countess wins in road races and criteriums at the professional level. Developed using CFD software and perfected in the wind tunnel, this aero road bike is up to 31% faster than typical round tube road frames. With a Felt UHC Ultimate + TeXtreme® carbon fiber frame, a Shimano Dura Ace Di2 drivetrain and top-of-the-line Zipp 404 NSW carbon fiber wheels, the AR FRD is a no-holds-barred speed machine, ready to deliver you to the top step of the podium.
