FeaturesEquilink 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.

Devox This indicates Felt’s exclusive premium quality component line Devox.  Every component with the Devox name was designed by the same team of engineers responsible for cutting-edge Felt bikes and technology.  When you see the Felt Devox name, you know that particular part or component is held to the very highest technological and performance standard.

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.
