The next level of road rockets has arrived with Felt's AR3 leading the charge. Everything about this full carbon superbike, featuring one of the world's most aerodynamic, UCI-legal frames, guarantees you'll save valuable time on your next ride or race. Its rear-wheel cutout, internal cable routing, reversible aero carbon seatpost, and seamlessly integrated bladed carbon fork drastically increase your chances of standing on the top step of the podium. Plus, it's spec'd with an impressive array of components, such as Shimano RS31 wheels for slicing through the wind, Shimano Ultegra components for flawless shifting, 3T handlebar and stem for superior ergonomics, and Prologo's comfortable Zero saddle for comfort all ride long.

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.

Comments:

This is a great bike for the avid cyclist and those looking to race. Coming from a Cervelo I have found this bike to be as comparable in terms of frame stiffness and and comfortable ride. The Ultegra DI2 group set functions really well. It is almost cheating how well the gears change. You will not be disappointed with this agile bike, whether for the local Sunday hit out with the boys or mixing it up with the summer evening crits.
