One part luxury liner, two parts rocket ship; Felt's Z5 serves up a heady blend of power and control that'll make every ride a blast! The back-friendly Z5 boasts a feathery high-modulus-carbon frameset that accelerates, climbs, and corners with confidence and also damps road vibrations for ride-all-day compliance. This great road machine is built for action with fast Felt RSL3 wheels, a compact Shimano 105 crankset for spinning up even the steepest climbs, and a host of 11-speed Shimano 105 components for precision shifting, as well as grippy Shimano 105 brakes for easy control. Felt's reliable bars, stem, seat, and dual-pivot brakes ensure rider comfort stays high.
Felt's Z-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.
