Adventures -really big adventures- require a bike that is ready for them as much as you are. Here's that bike.

The VR3 is one of Felt's best "variable road" models. Rough pavement, long distances and steep inclines are where the VR3 thrives. When we say rough, we mean Hell-of-the-North rough! The VR3 was designed with a smooth ride quality and a stable geometry; perfect for tackling a double century over roads both paved and unpaved. The tall head tube of the VR3 offers a more upright fit, allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable for multi-hour "challenge" rides. When the going gets steep, the VR3 is ready with a featherweight frame built from a clever combination of Felt's UHC Performance carbon fiber and the latest material tech found in cycling: TexTreme. Used in Formula 1 racing cars and America's Cup sailboats, TexTreme carbon fiber is relied on to optimize chassis strength and durability. This unique carbon fiber "recipe" allows Felt to build the frame and fork of the VR3 with much less resin, reducing overall frame weight. TexTreme also adds torsional strength to the frame as well, improving the bike's pedaling response during out-of-the-saddle efforts. A tapered head tube and press-fit bottom bracket adds even more torsional strength to the VR3 for predictable handling. The 12mm thru-axle hubs not only make disc brake rotor alignment perfect every time the wheels are installed, they also add an extra dash of handling precision. Long days in the saddle require more places to bring necessities, and the VR3's top tube boasts an extra mount for a strap-free bento box. Cool, huh? The VR3 boasts plenty of tire clearance for the wide and treaded rubber needed for gravel adventures. Internal cable routing keeps the VR3 looking sleek, too.

Shimano's latest version of their high-performance Ultegra components are found throughout the VR3, including the dual-control levers, front derailleur and long-cage rear derailleur. The reshaped levers boast a more comfortable texture and shape, while the new rear derailleur's tucked-in "Shadow" profile improves operation and requires less hand strength to operate. The new Ultegra toggle-pivot front derailleur also requires less effort to operate, and features a clever cable adjuster right on the derailleur itself. The VR3's hydraulic disc brakes are also Shimano Ultegra units, bringing outstanding lever feedback and stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. Even the rotors are the improved SM-RT800 versions that disperse heat even better than the previous-gen "wavy chip" units. A Rotor 3D30 48/32T alloy "sub-compact" crankset and 11-34T Shimano cassette boast a massive gearing range for fearsome inclines and fast descents.

Felt didn't cut corners on the VR3's rolling stock, and equipped it with the new DT Swiss E1800 wheelset. The rims are tubeless-ready, and bring a generous 20mm interior width to the party. This provides a better tire profile and contact patch, improving rolling resistance and lateral grip on choppy pavement. The 700x28c Vittoria Rubino Pro G+ tires have a semi-treaded profile, providing better grip on hardpan gravel.

A Prologo Nago Evo saddle sits atop a UHC Performance carbon fiber seatpost, while an alloy Felt VR stem and Felt VR road handlebar complete this century-ready machine.

A rear rack can be installed on the Felt VR3 with a thru-axle adapter and eyeleted seatpost binder set (sold separately). Please call for details and availability.
