Felt’s bike designers lost plenty of sleep on this beauty. The IA 4 is designed for ultra-fast bike splits with clever aerodynamic integration. Using Felt’s own UHC Advanced carbon fiber, the IA 4’s frame has been sculpted to knife through the air while maintaining a smooth ride quality. InsideOut frame construction eliminates excess material, ensuring light weight as well as incredible torsional resistance for out-of-the-saddle uphill charges. The IA 4’s BB30 bottom bracket provides an effective anchor for the Vision TriMax crankset. Details like the seat stays connecting further down the seat “tube” and a fully integrated Dagger carbon fiber fork keep the IA 4 slippery and helps make this bike the most efficient triathlon machine Felt has ever produced.
Tight packaging of the hidden brake calipers, derailleur and brake cables further improve aerodynamics, while a top-tube-mounted bento box keeps essential nutrition at hand. The IA 4’s UHC carbon fiber seat mast is not only aerodynamic, but soaks up vibration as well. The seat binder is a 3T DiffLock system that eliminates stress on the frame. Rear-entry dropouts are equipped with adjustable chain tensioners for perfect positioning of the rear wheel in relation to the seat tube.
The IA 4’s drivetrain is also cutting-edge, with Shimano’s latest 11-speed Ultegra derailleurs operated with aero-bar mounted MicroShift shifters. The IA 4’s Vision BB30 crankset features 52/38T chainrings, with a 11-25T Shimano cassette offering a tall gearing range for high speeds. Felt’s alloy TTR3 wheels are laced with aero spokes and are shod with 23mm Aero TT2 tires for a smooth, efficient ride. The bike’s alloy Nano base bar and adjustable S-bend aero bar mount into the top of the Dagger stem for a clean look. An ISM Attack saddle completes this incredible machine.
