Felt's Nine FRD is the machine to crush XC and endurance rides and races. This 29er frame boasts space age, ultra-advanced FRD UHC Ultimate + TeXtreme high-modulus carbon for the perfect blend of supreme stiffness, confident handling, and astoundingly low weight. A tapered head tube, threaded bottom bracket, and 142x12mm thru-axle ensure a dialed ride. To tame rough terrain, it features the supremely adjustable, precise cornering RockShox RS1 with 100mm of travel and feathery DT Swiss XRC1200 wheels wrapped in tacky Schwalbe tires to keep you accelerating. Throw in SRAM's brilliant 11-speed XX1 drivetrain powered by Race Face Next SL cranks, and hauled down by powerful XX1 brakes, and Felt's Nine is set to provide perfect shifting and pinpoint stopping on every trail. The carbon goodness continues with a carbon bar and seatpost, and a featherweight carbon-railed WTB SL8 seat. From the local race circuit to the World Cup, this is the rig for XC and endurance dominance.
Felt's MMC (Modular Monocoque Construction) method is an advanced carbon manufacturing process that allows Felt to mold individual sections of a frame (see image above) prior to assembly. This allows each frame section to be optimized for its individual requirements before being fused together. The result is a frame with completely integrated joints that offer superior strength, durability and a refined appearance.
