 When your toughest day on the bike might be tomorrow, there's confidence to spare when this is your bike.

Long routes, gravel trails, rough roads, steep climbs, and precipitous descents in the same day require a bike that will put up with anything. Anything. With centuries, "challenge rides" and gravel tours becoming more common, customers have been asking for a bike that can take on everything in sight. Comfort is key, and the VR3W started with a comfortable fit and stable handling. A tall head tube, wide road tires, long wheelbase and women's Prologo Kappa saddle are helpful, but the core of this bike's comfort is the frame and fork. Built with feather-light TexTreme carbon fiber (and Felt's own UHC Advanced carbon fiber), the frame and fork of the VR3W is constructed for excellent ride quality and smoothness. With incredibly thin TexTreme carbon sheeting, the VR3W's frame and fork can be built with very little resin that might cause changes in weight from one unit to the next. Thin tapered seat stays absorb shock, while a flattened top tube soaks up vibration. High torsional strength is also helpful when putting power to the pedals, especially when a steep climb needs to be conquered. A BB386 bottom bracket anchors the crankset for flex-free pedaling response. A tapered head tube adds extra precision during fast descents and high-speed turns. The VR3W also boasts thru-axle hubs that not only assure perfect disc brake alignment, but also improve overall torsional strength for brilliant handling. Useful touches like internal cable routing and a third bottle mount on the top tube make the VR3W a handy companion on day-long adventures.

The VR3W needed a component group built around the idea that the steepest climbs are at the end of any ride, not the beginning. The drivetrain is a useful mix of Shimano Ultegra derailleurs, 11-speed Shimano shifters, a Shimano 11-32T cassette and low-geared Rotor 3D30 Adventure crankset boasting 46/30T chainrings. Yes, your lowest gear is less than a 1-to-1 ratio! Lumpy ride profiles and steep climbs of 10+% will be there waiting, but now the bike is more than ready. Knowing that you might be descending a hill that was just as steep as the way you got to the top, Felt added serious brakes to the VR3W: Shimano's hydraulic RS685 road levers are connected to RS685 hydraulic calipers for excellent stopping power and long service life. Lightweight Novatec 30 CL wheels are shod with 700x28c Schwalbe Pro One tires for refined ride quality, confident grip and easy acceleration. An alloy short reach road handlebar, alloy stem, UHC Performance carbon fiber seatpost and the aformentioned Prologo Kappa saddle complete this superlative bicycle.
