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.
Whether it’s pristine tarmac, eroded thoroughfares long abandoned to the elements, majestic climbs, or epic descents, Endurance bikes must be prepared for whatever comes their way. From daybreak to sunset, they empower riders with a magic carpet ride to pedal one extra mile, climb one more hill, or outsprint their buddies in one final city limit sign sprint.
“I ONLY WENT OUT FOR A WALK AND FINALLY CONCLUDED TO STAY OUT TILL SUNDOWN, FOR GOING OUT, I FOUND, WAS REALLY GOING IN.”
The VR features an ideal blend of compliance, performance-oriented stiffness and the incredible versatility befitting the modern endurance road cyclist. Endurance-oriented geometry designed around an upright riding position, combined with a newly developed seat stay configuration, offers enhanced comfort and more confident handling characteristics for long days in the saddle. And a tapered head tube and robust bottom bracket shell ensure that the VR possesses the same performance credentials for which all felt bikes are renowned. Extend your ride and enhance your cycling experience with the Felt VR.
Road cycling has evolved. So, too, has the endurance road bike. The VR provides an all-new perspective on experiencing the road, one centered around pushing the limits of distance, topography, and terrain. It’s a bike with which to go forward, to discover, and to evolve. From sunrise to sundown, the VR is your companion to heretofore unknown roads.
