It’s hard to keep tight-lipped about a bike like this one,” says Felt Bicycles Mountain Bike Product Manager, Rob Pauley. “After meticulous refinement of every detail and refusing to be constrained by typical industry schedules, we exceeded our goals for stiffness, weight and travel. Our team was able to develop a trail bike that shines across a wide spectrum of riding conditions.”
