Meet the FR. There’s a reason it’s our flagship race bike. Actually, there are dozens of reasons. But here’s all you need to know: If you’re looking for the best-handling, fastest-climbing, smoothest-riding road racing bike in the world, you’ve found it.

Buy it if:

You want the stiffest, lightest, most high-performance road bike in the world.

Don’t buy it if:

You’re looking to save some cash, perhaps for a fresh helmet, shoes, and kit to go with your new bike. If so, check out the FR | Advanced line. These bikes feature the same great handling and ride quality, along with component selections finely curated for performance and value, all in a package that won’t have you digging into the kids’ college savings account.

Highlights:

The FR represents one half of the ideal union between bike and rider. Free of excess, it was painstakingly and obsessively honed for the needs of the most committed road cyclists, in order to win battles of will, attrition, and tactics on any racecourse. When you strip away unnecessary indulgences and gimmicks, all that is left is pure performance, embodied in a bike that is an extension of you.

This is the bike of choice for both the men’s and women’s contingents of the Rally UHC Cycling pro continental team. The North American-based squad is amongst the most well-respected in the global pro peloton, thanks in large part to their professionalism. They’ve been steadily racking up race wins year in and year out while simultaneously developing the newest generation of cycling superstars. But they’re also a gutsy team that races each event with a tenacity like no other. The team’s primary goal for every race is to shake things up, rattle the nerves of their competitors, and give all of the fans lining the road or tuned in to their television sets the greatest show on two wheels. Whether it’s flying off the front of a breakaway, attacking the GC favorites up the final push of a queen stage climb, or stretching out the field with a white-knuckle display of bike-handling panache down a harrowing descent, the men and women of Rally UHC Cycling demand a bike that can not only do it all, but do it all phenomenally well.

The FR is the world’s best-performing platform for all road racing conditions. And the FR FRD, specifically, is the Ultimate extension of our passion for performance, as well as our commitment to providing riders with the very best materials and workmanship available. The FR FRD is crafted from two unique types of carbon fibers. UHC (“Ultra Hybrid Carbon”) Ultimate fiber is amongst the highest-modulus in the world of composites, meaning that it’s incredibly stiff to maximize pedaling efficiency and handling feedback. In addition to bicycles, TeXtreme is also utilized in the aerospace industry and on Formula One race cars to both add strength to a structure, as well as reduce its weight relative to alternative composite options. But just like how the finest food ingredients demand the skills of a master chef, these materials require unparalleled engineering expertise to yield a truly exquisite experience.

Felt engineers have a combined 90 years of experience in developing carbon fiber bicycles. With the finest materials at their fingertips, the most advanced manufacturing and construction techniques in the industry, and testing feedback from the most committed athletes in the world, they’ve created a bike that will outperform everything else on the road.

Starting with a clean sheet of paper, our engineers designed the FR from the ground up with racing geometry that boasts impeccable handling characteristics and a precision-tuned chassis that ensures riders are fresh for a finish line sprint after a long day in the saddle. The FR also boasts more clearance than any previous Felt road race bike, which means riders can utilize tires up to 28mm wide on select rims. An intuitive cable management system allows for clean aesthetics and easy maintenance for any drivetrain, be it mechanical or electronic, with both options available on several different complete FR models.

FRD stands for “Felt Racing Development.” It’s more than a fancy acronym, and it represents so much more than only three words can convey. It’s a badge of honor that we bestow upon only the most advanced bicycle framesets that emerge from our laboratory. It’s a declaration that we unshackled our mad scientists and engineering virtuosos to create something unhindered by the expense of materials, the confines of tight testing and development durations, or the limits of what’s come before.

There’s no better way to complement the performance credentials and the unbridled spirit of class-leading innovation of the FR FRD than with a full Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 component kit. The Japanese company’s Dura-Ace marque has always epitomized the very best in shifting and braking performance, along with exceptional reliability and the lightest weights possible. Shimano’s Di2 electronic shifting has been ridden to countless world championships and grand tour victories, and has proven its dependability in every riding condition on planet earth. Likewise, disc brakes are the new standard in road bike performance technology, and we gave the FR FRD the best of the best in the form of Shimano’s Dura-Ace hydraulic stoppers. The company’s latest Dura-Ace C40 carbon, tubeless-ready wheels, at 40mm deep, hit the sweet spot to complement the FR FRD’s all-around prowess, giving the bike an aerodynamic edge on the flats yet retaining plenty of snap for uphill accelerations. Plus, they roll like a dream.

Now, the question is, are you ready to experience the very best road bike on the planet?
