Any road bike meant for day-long adventures has gone through some serious changes in the last couple of years. This is Felt's version, and it's designed to fit women better, too.

The Felt VR5W takes the old ZW series from Felt and pushes the envelope for smoother riding and better performance. The frame is not only light, but offers an upright fit for a more comfortable posture. Need a small size for a comfortable standover height? In the smallest size (43cm), the VR5W has a standover height of only 26"! The UHC carbon fiber layup is designed differently for each size, ensuring small riders aren't beaten up by a stiff bike, or tall riders complaining about a rubbery feel. The bottom bracket of the VR5W anchors the crankset in a BB386 press-fit unit, ensuring flex-free power delivery. The bike's tapered steerer tube adds a precise feel to handling and braking, especially in high-speed turns and descents. 12mm thru-axle hubs not only keeps disc brake alignment excellent, but also improve the VR5W's torsional frame stiffness. Flat-mount brake caliper mounts and internal cable routing give the VR5W a sleek, clean look. There's even a third bottle mount on the tube tube for an accessory box. If you want to add a rear rack to the VR5W, Felt offers an adapter set (sold separately) for clean installation.

The drivetrain of the VR5W was chosen for all manner of awful inclines and terrible surfaces. Shimano's 105 derailleurs are operated with 11-speed Shimano RS505 adjustable-reach levers, ensuring precise shifting and long service life. An 11-32T Shimano cassette is matched with an FSA Gossamer Pro 48/32T crankset for tackling seriously steep roads and inclines. Helping to keep speed reigned in is the job of a set of Shimano RS505 hydraulic disc brakes that boast self-adjusting pads and excellent lever feedback. Disc brakes boast excellent stopping power in all conditions, wet or dry. Alloy Felt tubeless-ready wheels are shod with 700x28c Schwalbe Durano RaceGuard tires for easy acceleration and a smooth ride on broken pavement and hardpan. A Prologo Kappa saddle sits atop a UHC carbon fiber seatpost, while a shallow-drop alloy road handlebar completes the cockpit of this epic-ready machine.
