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.

This product uses only the highest quality aluminum tubing available, giving our products the optimal blend of strength, weight, performance and value.  We form, taper and shape each tube for its particular placement and end-use.  These steps result in a lightweight responsive frame that minimizes rider fatigue and maintains quality

 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.

Hydroform The Hydroform manufacturing process is used to create lightweight, stiff and strong aluminum frames.  With hydroforming – an internal hydraulic forming process – Felt is able to eliminate the need for gussets and can use radically shaped tubes to optimize the bike’s ride quality.

Control Taper By using a Control Taper 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.
