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.
