The new Felt Broam adventure/gravel series of bikes are a redesign of the super versatile VR series and are equally at home riding bike paths or pavement, commuting to work year around and bikepacking through the wilderness.

Frame and Fork

The Broam frame is constructed of lightweight, butted and hydroformed aluminum tubing with internally routed cables to keep everything functionally and aesthetically clean.

Up front the carbon fiber fork provides road vibration dampening and the aluminum steerer tube is the current standard: tapered, with a 1.125″ bearing at the top and a 1.5″ bearing at the bottom to maximize lateral stiffness.

All Broam series frames include mounts for rear racks, front and rear fenders, three water bottle cages and a top tube bag. You can carry some gear!

Drivetrain and Brakes

The shifters and derailleurs are Shimano Tiagra and the brakes are Tektro Hybrid HYRD cable actuated hydraulic disc brakes, the most powerful brakes used on bikes at this price range.

The crankset is FSA Omega crankset with a 46/30 chainring combination and the cassette range is Shimano 10 speed 11-34.

The resulting 30/34 ratio lowest gear is perfect for hilly SW Pennsylvania.

Wheels and Contact Points

The remainder of the components are Devox by Felt. The seatpost, stem and handlebars are aluminum.

The wheels are tubeless ready and the tires are 700x40 puncture resistant Maxxis Refuse.

The Broams are available in the full run of sizes: 47, 51, 54, 56, 58, 61 cm.
