Felt AR Series

Felt Bicycle AR5

The Felt AR is at the top of our list for performance road bikes in 2017. While we love the Felt FR series, the award winning AR (Best in Show at Eurobike & Road Magazine’s Bike of the Year), the AR has incredibly low drag, but doesn’t compromise on lateral stiffness or comfort.

Under the Radar: The AR seatpost uses a simple, elegant design which not only make adjustments easy, but makes the AR more compliant than any aero bike we’ve ridden.

Bottom Line: If you insist on having an ethereally light bike for climbing, we still wholeheartedly recommend the F series frames, but the ARs are now light enough, stiff enough, and comfortable enough to make traditional road bikes nearly obsolete.
