The Broam 60 isn't made for hard-nosed pro-racer wannabes. Instead, it makes the rider seek out more fun and adventure!
The outdoors is a big place when you want to venture beyond the pavement. The Broam 60 can help you do just that, and do it for less than you expect. Felt's own SuperLite custom butted aluminum frame and UHC Performance carbon fiber fork provides a light and strong "backbone" for challenging days in the saddle. Need room for wide tires? The Broam 60 can take 45mm rubber if you need it. Mounts for racks, bottle cages and fenders make the Broam 60 a practical machine. Internal cable routing keeps the bike looking clean and sleek, too. The long wheelbase, slack geometry and upright fit make for a comfortable fit and feel over rough surfaces, especially on long days. Shimano's 8-speed Claris shifters and derailleurs operate with precision, and even feature an adjustable lever reach for smaller hands. A Shimano RS200 46/34T crankset and Shimano 11-34T cassette boast a huge gearing range for challenging ascents and heavy cargo. Tubeless-ready alloy wheels are wrapped with meaty 700x40c Maxxis Refuse tires, offering a super-smooth ride on surfaces paved or unpaved. The Broam 60 also features cable-operated Tektro disc brakes with platter-like 160mm rotors, giving the rider confidence when stopping in wet and/or muddy conditions. A comfy SR Essenza Blackstar gel saddle sits atop an alloy Devox seatpost, while an adjustable-angle alloy stem and alloy Devox handlebar with an 8-degree flare completes this value-packed adventurer.
Felt continues to offer excellent performance at every price level. The VR60 is a prime example of how Felt's Variable Road (or VR) series brings high performance to an affordable price point.
The VR60 starts with a lightweight custom-butted FLite aluminum frame and UHC Advanced carbon fiber fork. The frame's shaped and tapered tubes ensure impressive torsional strength while retaining light weight and a smooth road feel, especially on rough and choppy surfaces. The geometry of the VR60 emphasizes a more upright posture for a wider range of rider fits and flexibilities. Up front, the UHC carbon fiber fork soaks up fatiguing vibration while helping to keep the entire chassis light. Details such as internal cable routing, a ControlTaper head tube/steerer tube interface, flat-mount disc brake installation and a top tube "bento box" mount demonstrate how Felt wants your first endurance road bike experience to be a good one. But they didn't stop there...
Shimano's 8-speed Claris conponents are found throughout the VR60's drivetrain, including the adjustable-reach dual-control levers, front derailleur and long-cage rear derailleur. This family of components might be Shimano's most introductory product for road bicycles, but the overall feel and functionality of Claris will set a high standard. An alloy Shimano Claris 50/34T compact crankset and 11-34T cassette brings a wide gearing range to the VR60, making steep ascents less challenging. Tubeless-ready alloy Devox wheels are wrapped with 700x30c Vittoria Zaffiro semi-treaded tires for easy acceleration and confident grip. Cable-operated Tektro disc brakes bring effective stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. A Devox saddle, alloy Devox seatpost, alloy Devox stem and alloy Devox road handlebar complete this value-packed machine.
The Revolt series of bicycles are built for adventures off the beaten path, commutes on the bike path, and everything in between. The Revolt 2 is the "entry-level" machine, but the design and component build are anything but ground-floor tech. Read on...
The ALUXX-grade frame and Advanced-Grade Composite carbon fiber fork of the Revolt 2 aren't repurposed from a cyclocross bike. They're a from-scratch design that prioritizes stable handling, light weight, a comfortable fit and wide tire clearance. How wide? Room for tires up to 700x45c! The Revolt 2's FSA MegaExo press fit bottom bracket transmits every watt to the rear wheel by eliminating power-robbing flex. A tapered Overdrive head tube/steerer tube interface adds precision to every corner and high-speed descent. 12mm thru-axle dropouts, flat-mount brake calipers and internal cable routing shows how Giant wanted the make the Revolt 2 a sleek performer. Mounts for up to 3 water bottle cages make the Revolt 2 a great choice for long days in the wilderness.
A gravel bike has to perform with every gear shift and squeeze of the brake lever, and the Revolt 2 has that covered. Shimano's 9-speed Sora components are found throughout the drivetrain, ensuring precise operation and long service life. 9-speed Sora components include the adjustable-reach dual-control levers, front and rear derailleurs, and even the wide-range 11-34T cassette. FSA's Vero Pro alloy crankset boasts a 48/32T chainring combo, allowing a less than 1-to-1 gear ratio for intimidating inclines. Giant's own tubeless-ready alloy SX-2 Disc wheels are wrapped with 700x38c gravel-tread Crosscut AT 2 tubeless-ready tires for low rolling resistance and grippy confidence in the rough stuff. Tektro supplies the cable-operated MD-C550 disc brakes, adding excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine.
To help take the edge off of washboard trails, broken pavement and awful railway crossings, Giant developed a clever D-Fuse alloy seatpost that has just enough flex to keep the rider comfortable without "pogo-ing" while sitting in the Approach saddle. An alloy Sport stem clamps an equally clever XR Ergo-Control alloy road handlebar.
