Road cycling has evolved. Riders all over the world are pushing their equipment further than ever before. They’re getting off the beaten path, exploring new roads and spending more time in the saddle on solo excursions, group adventures, and epic gran fondos, all to satisfy their passion for the ride. These are the riders that inspired us to create the VR, the most versatile and capable endurance road bike in our history. Drawing on decades of frame building and carbon fiber innovation, our engineers meticulously crafted each and every VR model from the ground up with the most refined geometry and materials selection of any Felt endurance road bike, ever, harmoniously melding together comfort and performance.
Endurance road bikes are a category marked by their geometry and frame clearance adjustments which favor a slightly more upright and comfortable riding position along with clearance for some larger, more capable tires. With a focus on longer rides, increased comfort, and extra capabilities, endurance road bikes don't necessarily give up performance in favor of these other characteristics. They are simply a performance-oriented road bike with some extra benefits that suit a wide variety of riders, levels, and road (plus a little dirt/gravel) surfaces.
Wherever the road takes you, our endurance road bikes will make your journey worthwhile. We invite you to join us for the ride.
Felt believes that the VR 40/60 series are the best aluminum endurance bike they’ve ever created. Features a carbon fork to mitigate road chatter. Compatible with rack and fenders for amazing versatility.
