Felt Bicycles was founded in California, a land of pioneers, entrepreneurial mavericks, technology-driven mavens, and the most passionate outdoor fanatics you’ll find anywhere. Since 1991, we have strived to be the most innovative cycling company on the planet. That’s been our guiding principle. And, our targeted goal is to help each rider ascend to a world championship victory, surpass a personal record, or achieve a perfect ride on the parcours of their liking. We are devoted to creating the finest cycling experience in the world because we love nothing more than bikes and what they can bring to the human experience. From conquering an alpine climb to descending technical singletrack, from the thrill of racing to the forging of camaraderie on a group ride with friends, nothing compares to the act of pedaling. Wherever you are in your two-wheeled journey, we invite you to join us for the ride.
When it comes to carbon fiber innovation, Felt is committed to never-ending improvement. This is the driving force behind our newest carbon fiber blend, UHC Ultimate + TeXtreme®. This new ultra-high-performance blend is the evolution of the technology that is found in our cutting-edge UHC Ultimate + Nano. This latest offering, which debuted in our new Nine FRD frameset, continues to include both high- and ultra-high-modulus uni-directional materials to maximize stiffness and minimize weight. Coupled with our proprietary Nano resin, UHC Ultimate + TeXtreme® sets a new standard in carbon fiber frame construction.
Many people know full suspension creates a smoother ride, but an efficient suspension system can keep a rider moving faster. At Felt, we’ve developed our own proprietary suspension platforms, each unique in what they do and offer: FAST® and Equilink®.
Many companies use existing suspension platforms which are simply incorporated into a predetermined main frame. The problem with this is that while the suspension may work in theory, it’s not necessarily optimized for that particular frame. The only way to design superior bikes is to start from the ground up and design every aspect of the bike, including its suspension platform. We design our own suspension and frame in tandem with the single objective of delivering the best possible ride for any particular set of conditions or riding circumstances. With this in-concert approach we are able to fine-tune our bikes and suspension to achieve a truly extraordinary ride for elite athletes and recreational riders alike.
