It's here: a full-carbon road bike tailor-made for you! Felt's ZW5 boasts their featherweight high-modulus carbon frame and fork for outstanding pedaling efficiency, brilliant handling, and a super-smooth ride. This sweet women's-specific speedster rolls on light Felt wheels that spin up to speed effortlessly, while the 22-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain and wide-range Shimano 105 crankset provides the ideal gearing for the road's ups and downs. And, this road rocket is spec'd with women's-specific features for a custom fit, like shallow-drop handlebars and an women's specific Prologo saddle for superb comfort.

Felt's ZW-Series frames are built around a relaxed, compact geometry that's comfortable, stable, and ready to go as fast as you want. The taller head tube allows a more upright riding position, while the longer wheelbase and less aggressive head- and seat-tube angles deliver responsive, confident handling. All the frame tubes are size specific and highly shaped, too, ensuring an optimal ride for every cyclist.

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.

About Me

Comments:

I love how this bike rides but I have had issues with my derailleur cables. I am a road rider who climbs hills and have had the bike for 4 months. It is currently in shop getting the cables changed out. This bike can climb so much faster than my previous bike. I truly love the ride. I hope this is my last stop at the bike shop until the next season tune up.

Comments:

I do a lot of long distance road riding and I have plenty of gears to get up the hills and love that every time I pedal I feel the response. The only down side for me is that in order for me to bring along my rear bike rack and panniers I have to switch to my old aluminum seat post because the carbon fiber can't support it. Otherwise it is a dream! I love, love, love it.
