Rough pavement and steep climbs are bad enough, but perilous descents and wet weather can really ruin a good ride! The Z3 Disc was designed to help make everything a bit easier and more predictable.
Felt used their UHC Performance carbon fiber to construct a lightweight frame that can transmit pedaling force without a rubbery feel. A BB30 bottom bracket offers a solid anchor point for the crankset, while the tapered head tube adds a more precise feel to the Z3 handling quality, especially during fast, sweeping descents. Internal cable routing keep the Z3 looking sleek, while the more upright fit accommodates a wider range of riders and flexibilities. A longer wheelbase adds stability for tackling broken blacktop. Even the fork has a carbon fiber steerer to keep weight low and soak up fatiguing vibration.
Shimano brings a refined 11-speed Ultegra drivetrain to the Z3 Disc, including a long-cage rear derailleur, front derailleur, 50/34T compact crankset and 11-32T cassette. The dual-control Shimano R685 levers are hydraulic, and operate Shimano R685 disc brake calipers. With no cables or housing to corrode, improved lever feedback and greater stopping power, disc brakes make the most sense in a wider range of riding conditions. 140mm Shimano Ice-Tech rotors and disc brake pads can sustain repeated hard braking and not suffer glazing or fade like caliper brakes. The alloy DT Swiss R23 rims are laced to DT Swiss hubs for long service life and durability. 27mm Challenge Paris-Roubaix tires add grip and comfort for century rides and cobblestones. A Prologo Scratch 2 saddle sits atop a UHC carbon fiber seat post, while an alloy 3T stem and Felt road handlebar complete the cockpit of this 'Fondo conquerer.
