 If you're looking for a bike that has that magic combination of comfort, durability and lightness -and still offers lots of value-for-dollar- the VR5 should be on your list.

 The Felt VR5 was built from the ground up as a bike for more than just long days in the saddle. It was built for day-long adventures. When the road surface gets broken (or disappears entirely), the VR5 is up to the challenge. Felt's UHC Performance carbon fiber is built around a stable platform, giving the VR5 a confident feel on rough and choppy pavement. The long wheelbase provides a stable feel on fast descents that might be less than perfect. The tall head tube allows the VR5 to fit a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- comfortably with minimal component swaps. A press-fit BB386 bottom bracket is built to give the VR5 flex-free power delivery with every pedal stroke, especially on steep inclines. The head tube is tapered from 1-1/8"-to-1-1/2", improving steering precision in high-speed descents. 12mm front and rear thru-axles not only improve torsional strength, but also make wheel installation and disc brake alignment a breeze. Internal cable routing and flat-mount brake caliper mounts adds a clean look to the VR5 as well. An inexpensive upgrade kit is available for rear rack installation.

Shimano's 11-speed 105 derailleurs are an excellent choice for the VR5 -including the long-cage version of the rear derailleur- giving quick shifting operation even under hard pedaling loads. The crankset isn't a Shimano unit, but an alloy FSA Gossamer Pro ABS Adventue crankset with a 48/32T chainring combination. When paired with a 12-32T Shimano cassette, the VR5 can challenge even the most intimidating grades. The 11-speed Shimano RS505 hydraulic-ready dual-control levers boast adjustable reach and excellent lever feedback under braking. Shimano also provides the RS505 hydraulic brake calipers ensuring positive stopping power in all conditions, wet or dry.

Wheels and tires can make all the difference on multi-surface rides, and Felt has selected a balanced component list when it comes to the VR5's rolling stock. The tubeless-ready alloy VR19 wheels feature a 19mm-wide inner width and a robust 28-spoke build; perfect for wide rubber and unpleasant roads. A 23mm rim depth add a dash of aerodynamics for when the headwinds come calling. 700x28c Vittoria Rubino Pro G+ tires are slightly treaded, giving the VR5 additional bite on hardpan surfaces. A Felt VR UHC Performance carbon fiber seatpost is topped with a Prologo Kappa Space saddle, while an alloy Felt VR stem and alloy Superlite road handlebar complete this excellent machine.
