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 world’s best-performing aero road bike, and the ultimate weapon against aerodynamic drag. The frame and fork are constructed from Felt’s Aero Road UHC Ultimate + TeXtreme carbon fiber using MMC with InsideOut construction to achieve both a stunningly low weight and the aero profiles that make the bike so fast. In collaboration with 3T, the AR FRD’s unique aero seatpost not only reduces performance-robbing vibrations, but also allows the rider to dial in his or her most powerful position. Its unique design also allows it to be flipped in order to turn the AR FRD into a time trial or triathlon machine.
We're thrilled to carry Felt bicycles because no matter what your riding style is, Felt makes the ideal bike! The man behind Felt, Jim Felt, made a name for himself in motocross as an ace mechanic. And, it was while supporting one of the stars of motocross that Felt built his first bicycle frame, a time trial/triathlon model. That led to Felt’s first successes in cycling and they came before he even had a name for the company. Word of Felt's notoriously fast frame spread quickly, which led to a call from Easton Sports. Easton was relatively new to the bicycle industry and needed a product engineer for its fledgling bike program. Felt brought his cycling know-how and Easton provided a crash course in metallurgy. This partnership resulted in more victories. In 2001 Felt to expanded the prestigious name into a broad offering of road and tri bikes,mountain bikes, and they added cruisers and commuter bikes. Today, Felt utilizes carbon to produce one of the most aerodynamic time trial/triathlon bicycles ever created. And, with an all-star team of riders racking up victories in everything from the local cyclocross series to European road racing, Felt's awesome innovations will continue to stay one step ahead.
