Long distances -really long distances- over harsh terrain was what the Felt VR2 is made for, while making every mile just a little easier on its rider.

This is the endurance road bike that Felt pulled out all the stops for. Centuries, granfondos and randonneur events that take all day are the primary focus of the VR2. With a stable geometry, smooth ride and more upright fit, the VR2 keeps the rider fresher for longer. The list of technology that goes into the VR2 reads like a wish-list: TexTreme carbon fiber found in F1 racing cars, Shimano Ultegra Di2 shifting, hydraulic disc brakes, DT Swiss alloy wheels. There's no corner cut with the VR2.

When Felt looked at all the choices for raw carbon fiber, the list was long. But they looked at the most extreme of sports for inspiration. Formula 1 racing teams have been building cars from carbon fiber since the 80's, giving drivers an advantage with a lightweight and strong chassis. The best carbon fiber used in Formula 1 cars (and even helmets) is TexTreme. With a ribbon-style shape to the fabric thread, the VR2's frame structure is constructed incredibly thin, even for carbon fiber! There is no loss of strength, however, allowing the VR2 to start with a far lighter frame when blended with Felt's own UHC Advanced carbon fiber. The VR2's geometry and fit are built around a stable feel and more upright posture; perfect for century rides, randonneur events and rough pavement with occassional gravel detours. A BB386 press-fit bottom bracket provides an excellent anchor for the crankset, offering flex-free power delivery. A tapered 1-1/8-to-1-1/2" head tube/steerer tube interface keeps the VR2's front end anchored well for uphill, out-of-the-saddle efforts. 12mm thru-axles front and rear ensure a more torsionally rigid "chassis" for improved pedaling response and handling, especially in fast corners. Flat-mount disc brakes and internal cable routing keeps the VR2 looking clean. Even the fork is an all-carbon unit, keeping weight low.

Shimano's recently redesigned 11-speed Ultegra R8070-series Di2 components are found throughout the drivetrain and brakes of the VR2, starting with the dual-control levers. An upgraded lever hood and slimmer profile fits a wider range of hand sizes more comfortably. The shifter buttons have a more positive "click", provding better feedback when wearing full-finger gloves. The long-cage Ultegra Di2 rear derailleur allows the use of a wide-range 11-32T Shimano Ultegra cassette, allowing a wider range of steep inclines to be scaled successfully. The Ultegra Di2 front derailleur features a slimmed-down cage, preventing interference from wider rear tires depending on wheelbase. The front derailleur even adjusts itself automatically when large jumps are made across the rear cassette, eliminating any chain rub. The FSA SL-K Modular Adventure crankset is equipped with a 48/32T chainring combination, bringing even the steepest gravel-covered climbs within reach. Yes, that's a 32Tx32T easy gear.

DT Swiss provides the tubeless-ready alloy ER1400 wheels, keeping rotating weight very low for easy acceleration. The extra-wide 20mm width helps produce a wide tire contact patch for a smoother feel and lower rolling resistance. 700x28c Vittoria Ribino Pro G+ semi-treaded tires add confident grip on pavement and hardpan surfaces alike. A Prologo Scratch 2 Space saddle sits atop a carbon fiber 3T seatpost, while 3T's alloy stem and road handlebar compete this century-challenger.

A Shimano charging cable is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
