Let's face it, long rides and tough events require a bike that doesn't hold you back. At all. The VR2W does so many things well, you can embrace the challenge without thinking about your machine.

The VR2W was started with the idea that well-engineered endurance road bikes should fit women just as well as men. Instead of two or three sizes offered by most brands, Felt's VR2W is available in five (yes, you'll find your size in here somewhere). The VR2W's smallest size is 43cm. That's right, 43 centimeters! The standover height on that size is only 26.1", allowing a wide range of riders to climb aboard easily. Long fork blades and a generous head tube length in all sizes allow a wide range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to position the handlebar in a more upright position. A more upright fit lets everyone get comfortable for multi-hour rides and centuries. The VR2W boasts stable handling as well, giving the rider a confident feel on rough descents and over bad railway crossings.

The "backbone" of the VR2W is made from Felt's own recipe of UHC Advanced carbon fiber and TexTreme carbon fiber. TexTreme carbon fiber allows Felt to use very little resin when building the frame of the VR2W, making the bike even lighter and the ride quality even more tuneable across every size. The bike's buttery smooth ride doesn't result in a rubbery feel when tackling steep ascents. Instead, the BB386 bottom bracket anchors the crankset with incredible strength for instant pedaling response. The ControlTaper tapered head tube/steerer tube also improves the VR2W's handling in fast turns and twisty descents. Even the fork is an all-carbon version, built with UHC Advanced carbon fiber and TexTreme carbon fiber for a truly featherweight chassis. 12mm thru-axles front and rear not only help with aligning the brake rotors into the calipers, but also enhance torsional strength even further. Flat-mount brake caliper installation brings even more weight savings to the VR2W. Internal cable routing keeps the bike looking clean and sleek, while a top tube mount for a bento box adds convenience.

Shimano's redesigned Ultegra components reach their zenith with this collection installed on the VR2W. 11 speeds across the rear cassette isn't new, but the range of cogs is bigger than ever: 11-32T! And shifting is done with Shimano's revolutionary Di2 electronic technology, not cables and housing. This ensures perfect operation with every shift. Every. Single. Time. Up front, an FSA SL-K Adventure alloy crankset with 48/32T chainrings brings incredibly low gearing to the VR2W, making every hill less intimidating.  Both Ultegra Di2 dual-control levers also operate hydraulic disc brakes, bringing outstanding stopping power, lever feedback and wet-weather performance. Did we mention the levers have an adjustable reach for smaller hands, too?

Any bike's wheelset makes a difference on overall peformance, and Felt knew it needed something special for the VR2W. The ER 1400 tubeless-ready alloy wheels by DT Swiss weigh only 1493 grams and bring a 20mm wide rim to the party, allowing the installation of wide, grippy rubber. The rims have no braking track, keeping rotating weight low. 700x28c Vittoria Rubino Pro G+ tires add confident grip and a smooth feel.

3T supplies the ARX pro II alloy stem and 3T Ernova Pro alloy road handlebar. A Prologo Scratch 2 Space saddle sits atop a 3T Team Stealth seatpost, completing the cockpit of this high-tech adventurer.

A Shimano Di2 battery charging cable is included with the the purchase of this bicycle.
