The New Felt FR

“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”

INTRODUCING THE FR

Eleven thousand miles, six hundred forty-seven hours, and three million, one hundred
thousand pedal strokes per year. The FR is the expression of a determination and
commitment to develop the world’s best race bike. The FR deviates from expected
norms by eschewing indulgence and entrusting function to guide form. The FR is
an extension of the rider, an embodiment of the pursuit of an ideal, and the result
of a conviction to a unified goal: build the best possible instrument for speed.

CONFIDENT

Felt’s flagship race bike has won grand tour stages, countless amateur victories
and the bragging rights that come from winning the city limit sprint. But now the level of competition in
cycling is higher than ever before. From the professional peloton to grassroots racing, performing at the highest level
requires a harmonious union between rider and bike, engine and machine. That’s why we set out to create the
stiffest, lightest and best-performing road bike the world has ever seen. One free of gimmicks, one whose form is defined by its function, and one that integrates seamlessly with the tactile, emotional and fit needs of its rider.
From grueling Alpine climbs to the most technical descents, from breakaways along
perilous pavé to the fastest sprint finishes, performance is critical, no matter what the parcours holds.
Welcome to the FR.

HONED

Starting with a clean sheet of paper, our engineers meticulously crafted the FR from the ground up.
Its racing geometry boasts impeccable handling characteristics and exceeds the fit demands of
nearly every rider, while its precision tuned chassis ensures that racers are both fresh for a finish line sprint
after a long day in the saddle and assured that no watt is ever wasted. Honed by our
decades-long history of innovation and carbon expertise, the FR was rigorously tested in the lab via
some of the bicycle industry’s strictest protocols. But because the best race bike in the world must
also be proven in real-world conditions, athletes from our professional teams put the FR through its
paces at the highest level of competition. With optimum pedaling efficiency and exquisite
handling, the Felt FR is the most capable instrument for the modern road racer.

INSTINCTIVE

A precision instrument should oblige the individual preferences of its user, and such is the case
between the rider and the FR. Incorporating several unique engineering features that have been optimized
for contemporary drivetrains and components, the FR’s utility is only exceeded by its outright
performance. An intuitive cable management system complements the unique properties of every
drivetrain available. Ample frame clearance allows riders to utilize tires up to size 28mm on select rims.
Because of all this, and with it being available in both rim brake and disc brake versions,
the FR provides riders with more equipment choices than ever before. This instinctive integration
of components strips away unnecessary indulgences and gimmicks. And all that remains is pure
performance and utility, embodied in a bike that is an extension of you.
