From the BC Bike Race to the Trans Alp to your local scene, Felt's Virtue FRD combines trail bike suspension with cross country weight and efficiency. To maximize huge days in the saddle, it starts off with a feathery carbon frame tied to a 130mm Felt Equilink suspension that smooths chatter and big hits with equal ease, yet still slingshots you out of corners with impressive efficiency. Up front is a 140mm-travel RockShox Pike RCT3 fork that demolishes techy sections so you can point and shred. On rolling duty are 29-inch Easton Haven carbon wheels with high-end Schwalbe tires that float through the chunder and roll over everything else. Shimano helps with the uphill chores and keeps the drivetrain shifting like a dream thanks to the electronically perfect 2x11-speed XTR Di2 drivetrain. And, powerful XTR brakes give you pinpoint control and modulation right at your fingertips. A Reverb dropper post, Race Face Next carbon bar, and carbon-railed WTB saddle let the Virtue FRD do what it does best — rack up a giant amount of singletrack while putting a huge grin on your face.


Felt's Equilink suspension operates independently of the drivetrain with linked upper and lower arms. Equilink delivers predictable, consistent suspension that won't bob or kick back under pedaling forces. And, because the suspension is always active and equally sensitive to small bumps and large hits you'll be able to ride previously unrideable terrain, up and down!

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.
