Road riding presents all manner of challenges from unending hills (especially if you live here in Dane County) to rough pavement. The VR30W helps meet these challenges as well as fit brilliantly!
A lightweight road bike helps every rider from first-timers to veterans, and Felt has built up the VR30W around a featherweight FLite aluminum frame and UHC Advanced carbon fiber fork. The frame is not only light, but also boasts excellent torsional strength to help eliminate power-robbing flex. The VR30W's elegant tube shaping is produced with hydroforming the aluminum, allowing less material to be used while enhancing overall strength. A ControlTaper head tube improves handling, especially in high-speed turns and descents. The FSA Omega crankset is mounted in a BB386 bottom bracket, ensuring flex-free pedaling response. Making wheel installation a snap are 12mm thru-axles front and rear. Disc brake alignment will always be quick and simple with thru-axles. Internal cable routing gives the VR30W a clean, sleek look, too. Felt's own UHC Advanced carbon fiber not only reduced the fork's weight, it also soaks up fatiguing vibration. The overall fit of the VR30W is comfortably upright, making easier work of rough pavement and long hours in the saddle.
Shimano's new 11-speed 105 derailleurs are operated with a pair of Shimano RS505 dual-control levers, making gear changes quick and effortless. The levers have an adjustable reach, allowing riders with small hands to brake and shift with comfort and confidence. The 105 rear derailleur features a tucked-in Shadow-style design that allows quicker shifts, even under had pedaling loads. The 105 front derailleur has a cutout in the trailing edge of the cage, allowing the use of wider tires with a shorter chainstay length. Hilly routes and rides still intimidating? An alloy FSA Omega 50/34T compact crankset and 11-34T Shimano cassette brings a huge gearing range to the party. Tubeless-ready alloy Devox 1.9 rims are wrapped with 700x28c Vittoria Rubino Pro G+ tires, giving the VR30W an extra dash of comfort as well as boatloads of grip. Hydraulic Shimano 105 disc brake calipers bring a new level of precision to braking, as well as excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. A Prologo Kappa DEA2 saddle is mounted to a UHC Performance carbon fiber seatpost, while an adjustable alloy Devox stem and alloy Devox Road Endurance handlebar complete this century challenger.
