Our heritage lies in racing, and that is reflected in our road line today. From the cobbles of the Spring Classics to the stop step of the Tour de France, Felt bikes have proven to be the best in the world. But roads lead to far more places than just a finish line. Wherever the road takes you, we’ve got a bike to make your trip worthwhile.
Performance bikes are designed for speed, above all else. They are idealized race machines with geometries that allow for more aerodynamic body positions, the most dynamic handling, and punchier accelerations. Lauded by professional riders and the most dedicated athletes, these bikes are most at home scaling daunting climbs, bombing down alpine descents, or attacking the peloton.
“A RIDER, SAID ANQUETIL, IS MADE UP OF TWO PARTS, A PERSON AND A BIKE. THE BIKE, OF COURSE, IS THE INSTRUMENT THE PERSON USES TO GO FASTER…”
-TIM KRABBE, “THE RIDER”
The FR is the stiffest, lightest and best performing road racing bike that Felt has ever created. Featuring a refined version of Felt’s legendary racing geometry that boasts confident and instinctive handling, the FR is built around a precision tuned chassis that ensures that no watt is ever wasted and that riders are fresh for a finish line sprint after a long day in the saddle. The FR also showcases several integration features that have been optimized for contemporary drivetrains and components, including an intuitive cable management system that maximizes efficiency and utility. Available in both rim brake and disc brake versions, the FR offers riders every equipment choice available.
Meet the FR. There’s a reason it’s our flagship race bike. Actually, there are dozens of reasons. But here’s all you need to know: If you’re looking for the best-handling, fastest-climbing, smoothest-riding road racing bike in the world, you’ve found it.
