Gravel and adventure bikes aren't a "fad" that are going away anytime soon. In fact, some manufacturers have been building them for awhile. This is one example that Felt put plenty of work into for their first foray into off-pavement endurance riding.

The V55 starts with a hydroformed FLite aluminum frame with tapered and hydroformed tube shapes for impressive torsional strength. The geometry of the V55 also boasts an upright fit for a more comfortable position on rough pavment. Laid-back geometry and a long wheelbase produces predictable handling, even on gravel surfaces. There's enough room for 38c tires under the fork and within the frame, allowing the V55 to explore uncharted teritory with the right tire choice. Felt's UHC Advanced carbon fiber fork is not only light, but also soaks up fatiguing high-frequency vibration. Mounts for a rear rack, fenders and bottle cages bring versatility for commuters and day-trippers. Internal cable routing gives the V55 a clean look.

The V55 is equipped with Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra derailleurs and an Ultegra 50/34T compact crankset, bringing precise shifting and excellent durability to the bike. A wide-range Shimano 105 11-32T cassette features a massive gearing range for challenging climbs, even while loaded down with cargo. Shimano also provides the RS505 dual-control levers that operate Shimano hydraulics disc brakes. Shimano's own Ice-Tec rotors and finned brake pads prevent heat build-up during repeated hard braking, extending component life. The V55's alloy Novatec rims are laced to Felt's alloy centerlock hubs, reducing rotating mass over 6-bolt brake rotor installation. Semi-treaded 700x30c Challenge Strada Bianchi OT Pro tires bring a butter-smooth ride quality and low rolling resistance over broken pavement and hardpan surfaces. They even look good, too!

A Prologo Kappa EVO saddle sits atop a UHC Performance carbon fiber Felt seatpost, while an alloy stem and alloy road handlebar complete this adventure-ready machine.
