The all-new AR is the bike you need if speed inspires and delights you. Whether you are in the hunt for PRs, segments, or Olympic gold, the AR is built to get you to your finish line. Not just faster but better in every way, the new AR is designed with performance in mind. The frameset of the AR Advanced boasts aero shaping and details that make it an excellent multi-mission machine. Deep tube cross-sections allow the AR Advanced to slice through the air like a hot cinder through jell-o, while internal cable routing keeps the bike looking sleek. We know that going fast isn't only about cheating the wind—though the AR doesn't disappoint on that front—it's also about keeping yourself fresher and more composed than the competition. This is why Felt built the new AR from scratch, starting with a blank slate. They took the performance data from the existing AR, knowing just how fast it is and that it remains a reference point for racers and much of the cycling industry. But, on top of this, they elevated the importance of ride quality and handling to ensure that the total package is simply the fastest and best aero road bike they've ever designed. The AR is a whopping 9% faster than the previous AR depending on the conditions! The frame is built from Felt's UHC Advanced + TeXtreme carbon fiber, delivering incredibly low weight and consistent strength across all frame sizes. Felt's InsideOut frame fabrication techniques reduces the need for excess resin and factory finishing.
- Shimano's Ultegra Di2 electronic drivetrain operates with lightning speed. Sprinting out-of-the-saddle uphill? No problem! Shimano's Ultegra Di2 drivetrain will complete every shift without batting an eyelash, even under hard pedaling loads. A 52/36T Ultegra crankset and 11-30T Ultegra cassette offers a wide gearing range for performance riding and racing.
- Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes bring excellent lever feedback for more predictable stopping distances in all conditions, rain or shine.
-Reynolds AR58 tubeless-ready carbon fiber wheels add and extra level of aero tech to the AR Advanced while keeping rotating weight very low. How low? Only 1700 grams!
- A semi-integrated cockpit for performance and serviceability, because swapping stem lengths shouldn't require tearing the bicycle down just for a test ride.
