Felt VR 40 Road BikeEngineered for life on the open road, the VR 40 Road Bike from Felt is an endurance bike at heart and is designed for long days in the saddle. It features Felt’s SuperLite aluminium frame with VariableRoad (VR) geometry and UHC Advanced carbon fibre forks, this gives smooth and stable all-day cycling performance while also being agile and comfortable. Plus, it’s equipped with a Shimano Tiagra 2×10-Speed groupset with hydraulic disc brakes for assuring cycling efficiency and outstanding stopping power anywhere. And, it rolls upon 12mm Thru Axles, Shimano RS470 hubs and Tubeless Compatible aluminium rims.Responsive and Elegant Road Cycling PerformanceKey to the VR’s meticulously tuned level of compliance is due to Felt’s decades-long dedication to pushing the limits of carbon fibre construction. The VR is the result of a “form following function” design, with every element of the frame precisely configured to achieve the most sublime ride quality. Stable and Comfortable VariableRoad GeometryFor example, its rear triangle utilizes seat stays that are positioned outboard of the seat tube. Along with the utilization of disc brakes, this allowed Felt engineers to free up the seat stays from having to handle braking forces, meaning that they have been tuned entirely to work in conjunction with the tapered seat tube profile to ensure maximum compliance at the rear wheel. The aluminium iterations of the VR also feature this same dedication to maximizing rider comfort, as well. Disc Brake Equipped Road BikeDisc brakes are the new standard in road bike technology, providing increased stopping power, enhanced modulation and better performance in both adverse weather conditions and ideal riding conditions compared to rim brakes. For racers and performance-focused riders, disc brakes also improve handling and overall control, which allows you to carry speed through turns for a more fluid riding experience. No matter your age, fitness level, body size or even where you ride, disc brakes provide numerous benefits over traditional rim caliper brakes.All-Weather Versatile Endurance BikeThanks to its endurance-oriented geometry and disc brakes, the VR possesses superior all-weather versatility. To further enhance that versatility, our engineers gifted it sleek, hidden rack mounts, and also developed a proprietary fender kit that seamlessly integrates with the VR frame. Mounting Points for Additional on Bike Storage SolutionsAnd whether it’s a spare tube, tool kit or extra nutrition products, all-day riding excursions may require extra supplies. The VR features a mounting location along the top tube for installing a “bento box” style storage bag. The two-bolt setup features standard water bottle cage spacing, which gives riders the freedom to utilize a wide selection of aftermarket storage solutions.
