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.

Aluminum 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.

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.
