"Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away

When the aviator Antione de Saint Exupery wrote that, he'd probably say it about this bike. The Felt VR4 is the right machine for adventurers by taking a minimalist approach: No pivoting frame elements. No internal suspension components. No clumsy geometry. Just a bike that is minimalist in its approach to any long-distance journey. Felt's UHC Performance carbon fiber makes up the "backbone" of the VR4, keeping overall weight low while retaining plenty of torsional strength. The frame shaping adds compliance to the VR4, soaking up fatigung vibration during day-long rides. A BB386 bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery during steep ascents. The VR4's tapered head tube also improves handling, especially in high-speed corners and descents. The fork is an all-carbon UHC Advanced carbon fiber construction for weight reduction and vibration management. 12mm thru-axles front and rear improve lateral stiffness for better handling as well as foolproof wheel installation with disc brakes. There's room for tires up to 30mm wide, adding to the VR4's sure-footedness. The VR4's clever details add to any rider's experience, like internal cable routing for a clean look (even down the left fork leg!), dedicated fender mounts and a top tube mount for a bento box.

SRAM's single-ring components have found their way onto plenty of adventure bikes in recent years, eliminating weight and adding reliable functionality. The VR4 boasts SRAM's 11-speed Force CX1 shifter/hydraulic brake lever to bring precise operation with every shift. An alloy SRAM Rival crankset boasts a 38T X-Sync chainring that grips the chain in rough and dirty conditions. Out back, A SRAM Force CX1 rear derailleur operates across a SRAM 11-42T cassette for steep climbs and descents. The SRAM Force 1 rear derailleur features a roller-bearing clutch that eliminates chain slap and helps the X-Sync chainring keep a good grip on the chain. Everything you need when attacking washboard surfaces and charging over railway crossings.

Zipp supplies the ultralight alloy 30 Course wheels on the VR4, delivering excellent performance, especially in challenging terrain. They're tubeless-ready, and are wrapped with 700x30c Schwalbe S-One MicroSkin tires for confident grip on pavement, hardpan and light gravel. The Zipp wheels' 28-spoke build front and rear keeps the VR4 (and the rider) rolling with peace of mind through remote lands without a replacement spoke in sight. SRAM's Rival hydraulic disc brakes bring effective stopping power in all conditions, wet or dry. A Prologo Kappa Space saddle sits atop a lightweight UHC performance carbon fiber seatpost. In case you thought the VR4 might feel wimpy in the cockpit department, Felt has added a 35mm clamp-diameter alloy stem and handlebar. Every out-of-the-saddle effort will help you feel more connected.

The VR4 is in stock now. Come in and take a test ride soon!
