The FR represents one half of the ideal union between bike and rider. Free of excess, it was painstakingly and obsessively honed for the needs of the most committed road cyclists, in order to win battles of will, attrition, and tactics on any racecourse. When you strip away unnecessary indulgences and gimmicks, all that is left is pure performance, embodied in a bike that is an extension of you.

The FR is the world’s best-performing platform for all road racing conditions. And the FR FRD, specifically, is the Ultimate extension of Felt's passion for performance, as well as our commitment to providing riders with the very best materials and workmanship available. The FR FRD is crafted from two unique types of carbon fibers. UHC (“Ultra Hybrid Carbon”) Ultimate fiber is amongst the highest-modulus in the world of composites, meaning that it’s incredibly stiff to maximize pedaling efficiency and handling feedback. In addition to bicycles, TeXtreme is also utilized in the aerospace industry and on Formula One race cars to both add strength to a structure, as well as reduce its weight relative to alternative composite options. But just like how the finest food ingredients demand the skills of a master chef, these materials require unparalleled engineering expertise to yield a truly exquisite experience.

FRD stands for “Felt Racing Development.” It’s more than a fancy acronym, and it represents so much more than only three words can convey. It’s a badge of honor that Felt only bestows upon the most advanced bicycle framesets that emerge from their laboratory. It’s a declaration that Felt unshackled their mad scientists and engineering virtuosos to create something unhindered by the expense of materials, the confines of tight testing and development durations, or the limits of what’s come before.

There’s no better way to complement the performance credentials and the unbridled spirit of class-leading innovation of the FR FRD than with a full Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 component kit. The Japanese company’s Dura-Ace marque has always epitomized the very best in shifting and braking performance, along with exceptional reliability and the lightest weights possible. Shimano’s Di2 electronic shifting has been ridden to countless world championships and grand tour victories, and has proven its dependability in every riding condition on planet earth. Likewise, disc brakes are the new standard in road bike performance technology, and we gave the FR FRD the best of the best in the form of Shimano’s Dura-Ace hydraulic stoppers. The company’s latest Dura-Ace C40 carbon, tubeless-ready wheels, at 40mm deep, hit the sweet spot to complement the FR FRD’s all-around prowess, giving the bike an aerodynamic edge on the flats yet retaining plenty of snap for uphill accelerations. Plus, they roll like a dream.

Now, the question is, are you ready to experience the very best road bike on the planet?

WEIGHT15.2 lb, 6.91 kgWEIGHT DISCLAIMERThe most accurate way to determine a product's weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Because we understand that weight is an important metric, we strive to list it when possible. When listed, weight is based on a single sample in a specific size and with all items as shown in the photo. It is not an exact indication of what your bike or frame will weigh, as there are tolerances in many variables involved (size, finish, hardware, components, and accessories). Felt continues to be an industry leader in weight and performance.
