The VR series bikes are significantly lighter and faster than the comparable gravel and adventure bikes now popular on the market and fill a real need for a light, fast and versatile bike for more athletic but non-competitive riders.
For 2020, the Ultegra level VR is equipped with a carbon rim disc brake wheelset Reynolds, a $1,000 upgrade over the standard aluminum wheelsets other brands are using at this price range. The carbon rims are lighter, faster and offer a noticeably smoother ride quality.
The Felt VR endurance bikes are designed for a rider who wants a road bike, but with the option of running wider 700x32mm multi-surface tires for off-pavement riding.
This is a modern road bike designed for all-day, epic road rides, with a focus on comfort and a smooth ride quality.
