The VR5 is built for more than just an hour on the bike path. Centuries, "double metrics" and challenge rides are what this bike is built for.
Felt's VR geometry allows a wide range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable for multi-hour rides with a tall head tube and a long wheelbase. By using their proprietary UHC Performance carbon fiber, Felt combined that geometry with an outstanding chassis, allowing the bike to soak up fatiguing vibration over rough pavement. A ControlTaper tapered head tube and BB386 bottom bracket improves overall frame rigidity, along with 12mm thru-axles for reduced wheel flex in turns. This all combines to make the VR5 very efficient when tackling steep ascents, especially out-of-the-saddle charges.
Felt selected Shimano's recently redesigned 105 components, making the VR5 a precise performer when shifting and braking. An 11-30T cassette and an FSA Gossamer Pro 50/34T alloy crankset brings a huge gearing range for roller-coaster hills. Tubeless-ready alloy Devox Road RLS1.9 wheels are wrapped with 700x28c Vittoria Rubino Pro tires, making for easy acceleration and a confident feel in fast turns and descents. Speaking of descents, the VR5 is equipped with Shimano's latest hydraulic disc brakes, making stopping much more controlled in all conditions, rain or shine. A Prologo Kappa Space saddle sits atop a UHC Performance carbon fiber seatpost, while an alloy Devox stem and Devox Ergonomic road handlebar completes this century-ready machine.
