When Felt began the IA series, they threw out the rulebook that has governed TT bicycle design for international cycling competition. They were then free to design a bike with much deeper frame tube and fork blade shapes, resulting in a more aero bike than the UCI's 3-to-1 rules dictate. Wind tunnel tests demonstrated just how much faster the IA14 could be. Using Felt's proprietary UHC Performance carbon fiber, the IA14's frame stays feather-light while keeping high torsional strength during hard efforts. Their InsideOut frame manufacturing process reduces the need for excess resin, keeping frame weights uniform across all sizes. A stout BB30 bottom bracket keeps the crankset anchored, eliminating energy-robbing flex. Internal cable routing keeps the IA14 looking clean. An adjustable rear dropout allows the rider to fine-tune rear wheel positioning against the trailing edge of the seat tube, refining the bike's aerodynamics further. The aero-blade seat post is also constructed of UHC Advanced carbon fiber and will reduce fatigue-inducing vibration. UHC Performance carbon fiber is used in the fork's construction as well, and features an integrated recess for a conventional brake caliper. Three (yes, three) bottle mounts and an internal storage cavity in the top tube ensure that every item needed for even the longest events will be within easy reach. A carbon fiber Bayonet 3 base bar and 3-way S-bend aero bars are easy to adjust for a comfortable and aerodynamically optimised rider position.
Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra derailleurs are operated by a set of MicroShifter shifters found at the end of the aero bars ofthe IA14. A Vision TriMax Pro TT BB30 crankset is armed with a 52/38T chainring combination, ensuring a sufficiently high gear for motoring on the flats. An 11-speed 12-28T Shimano cassette boasts a wide gearing range for roller-coaster bike courses. Vision's TriMax Aero front brake caliper and FSA direct-mount rear calipers help reign in speed while tucked out of the wind. Alloy Felt TTR4 wheels sport a 30mm depth, and are wrapped with 23mm TTR2 tires for low rolling resistance. A Prologo TGALE tri-specific saddle completes this PR-smashing speed machine.
