Equilink is Felt’s patented award-winning suspension design
that completely isolates active working suspension form drive train or braking
influence. The result is ride efficiency
like no other suspension platform whether on a 24-hour epic, high-speed
short-track loop or aggressive all-mountain terrain.|
Internal Cable Routing This indicates the use of flow-through internal cable routing. It reduces wind drag and prevents contaminants from entering and interfering with the function of brake or shifter cables.
Inside Out InsideOut is a revolutionary internally optimized molding process that completely eliminates excess material, and therefore weight, inside the frame tubes and junctions. Placing polyurethane inserts inside the frame during the molding process—especially at the bottom bracket and head tube area—and then applying a precise amount of pressure and heat results in perfectly formed tubes, inside and out.
Control Taper By using a ControlTaper head tube with 1-1/8” upper bearings and 1-1/2” lower bearings, Felt is able to significantly improve front-end stiffness and steering precision without adding weight to the frameset.
Dynamic Monocoque Construction Dynamic Monocoque Construction is a cutting-edge carbon fiber manufacturing technique that allows Felt to mold individual sections of the frameset and then join them with a special co-molding process. The primary advantage of DMC is that it allows each section of the frame to be optimized to meet the specific engineering demands of that particular section of the frame and to fully maximize the benefits of InsideOut technology.
UHC Performance UHC Performance is a T700- based blend of raw carbon fiber, which has a tensile strength that’s 7.9 times greater than 3/2/5 titanium and a stiffness rating that’s 3.34 times greater than 6061 aluminum. UHC performance brings the unmatched performance of a Felt carbon fiber bike to more affordable pricing levels than ever before.
