FELT RACING DEVELOPMENT

A no-holds-barred approach to designing & developing elite racing products that provide every advantage in a competitive setting.

The 2015 AR Series continues to be the world’s leader. Designed and developed using CFD software, and in the wind tunnel, this aero road bike is up to 31% faster than typical round tube road frames. Constructed from Felt Aero Road UHC Ultimate + TeXtreme® carbon fiber and using MMC with InsideOut construction the AR FRD framset is competition ready.

EXPLORE THE AR

1. Vibration Reduction (VR) Seatpost

Vibration Reduction seatpost provides excellent shock absorption with the help of 3T’s DiffLock™ comfort module.

2. Variable Geometry Optimized (VGO)

AR’s geometry was designed so the seatpost can be inserted in a forward and rearward position, changing the geometry from road to TT/triathlon without sacrificing aerodynamics.

3. Optimal Wiring Entry

Electronic Routing is designed into the frame, not an afterthought.

 

4. InternaLoc Seatpost Binder

Saddle height adjustments that won’t damage frame or seatpost. Clamps securely without compression of entire post and frame.

 

5. Twin Tail Seatstays

Seatstay assembly without conventional brake bridge that improves aerodynamics, reduces weight, contributes to the Gap Shield Rear Triangle and improves ride quality.

6. Patented Gap Shield Rear Triangle

Integration of rotating wheel aerodynamics into design of chainstay and seat tube reduces drag in the rear triangle.

7. Constant Aspect Airfoil Shapes

Frame airfoil shapes optimized for a specific range of speed and yaw angles to reduce drag across the entire performance envelope.

8. Twin Tail Fork Crown

Fork crown design improves aerodynamic transition from fork to down tube and improves ride quality by dispersing road shock over larger surface area.

9. Chainstay Mounted Rear Brake

Reduces exposure of brake from boundary layer to improve overall aerodynamic performance. Brake performance is enhanced by its mount to stiffer frame area.

The Felt IA FRD includes everything to make you faster: lighter weight, stiffer, better comfort, fit, and position. Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 provides precision shifting, while the Zipp 404 and 808 Firecrest wheels offer superior aerodynamics for a bike that’s easy to get up to speed and even easier to keep there.

EXPLORE THE IA

1. Vibration Reduction (VR) Seatpost

Vibration Reduction seatpost provides excellent shock absorption with the help of 3T’s DiffLock™ comfort module.

2. InternaLoc Seatpost Binder

Internal seatpost clamping system prevents over-torque of clamping forces and is integrated as to not obstruct aerodynamics and aesthetics.

3. Aerobar Integration

A thin and aerodynamic triathlon basebar is seamlessly integrated into a low-profile stem.

4. Integrated Dagger Fork

An integrated fork permits a narrower head tube section, which minimizes drag and increases aerodynamic performance.

 

5. Dagger Front Aero Brakes

Aero-optimized front brake cover reduces wind drag. Cover is easy to remove for brake service.

6. All Aspect Airfoil Shapes

Frame airfoil shapes optimized for a specific range of speed and yaw angles to reduce drag across the entire performance envelope.

7. Cloak Seatstays

Near-horizontal seatstay design improves aerodynamics by reducing wind drag. The design also improves comfort with its leaf-spring effect and boosts lateral stiffness with its small rear triangle surface area.

8. BatPac

Internal storage for electronic battery and also provides access to bottom bracket area for easy cable routing.

9. Integrated Rear Brake

Rear brake is strategically positioned on underside of chainstays for optimal aerodynamic efficiency. Removable cover makes the brakes easy to service.

Combine the efficiency of Felt’s FAST™ suspension platform with a no-holds-barred philosophy on frame material, and you get the Edict FRD. The proprietary UHC Ultimate + TeXtreme® carbon fiber technology yields the lightest, stiffest frame in the Edict family yet. Years in the making, but well worth the wait.

EXPLORE THE EDICT

1. External Guides

Shock lockout/dropper post guides.

2. Advanced Materials

UHC Ultimate + TeXtreme® carbon fiber.

3. Race Ready Performance

Frame is 120 grams lighter than LTD, 8-10% stiffer.

4. Internally Routed

Internally routed shift lines. Full internal routing for both front and rear derailleurs.

5. Stronger Linkage

Larger 15mm diameter pivot axles, larger diameter 7005 aluminum axle is lighter and stiffer, features a collet to lock the two sides together, increasing rigidity and strength, double row angular contact bearings are 60% stronger and 10% lighter than last year.

6. Optimized Rear Triangle

Shorter Chainstay length.

7. Precision Braking

160mm post mount rear brake.

8. Dropout

12×142 drop out. Syntace’s X12 system for fast wheel changes.
