You always know a Felt Cruiser when you see one. For years Felt has stood above the rest when it comes to creating these bikes with unique design themes and styles that grab your attention. The 2012 Cruiser line is the best yet, featuring a host of newly designed bikes and bringing the famous Felt quality and attention to detail to more consumers at even lower price points.
Flip through these pages or visit us online at feltbicycles.com, and we’re certain you’ll find more than one Felt Cruiser that speaks to you. Whether it’s the nostalgically themed Deep Six, the classically styled 1903, the retro Felt Beaumont or something more understated like the affordable Sunliner or Slant, there’s one to match any personality.
The style may be the first thing you notice about a Felt Cruiser, but once you own one, it’s the quality that stands out. From the materials we use to the way we build our frames to the customized components, these bikes are built to be ridden—and built to last.
Many of the Felt Cruiser frames feature hydroformed tubes. This sophisticated forming process allows us to design complex shapes and swoopy lines, which give the bikes a unique look and an amazing ride quality. All Felt Cruiser frames are built from either aluminum—the best choice for riders who want light weight and maximum corrosion-resistance—or hi-tensile steel, which offers strength and durability at a more affordable price.
When it comes to components, Felt refuses to cut corners. Every Felt Cruiser component is either designed in-house or specially selected to fit the needs of a particular bike. Many models feature super-wide 50mm aluminum rims, which deliver strength, stability and a unique cruiser style. The rims are mated to specially selected hubs, many of which are custom machined to match the fork or bike.
One of the most distinctive elements of any Felt Cruiser is our Brick tire, which comes in two sizes. The 24” x 3.0” Thick Brick is the larger, offering a smooth, supple ride and a stout look while maintaining a nearly identical outside diameter of a standard 26” tire. For more traditionally styled cruisers, we use the 26” x 2.125” Quick Brick. When mounted to our wide rims, both Brick tires offer increased width for a more stable ride.
Felt Cruisers have long been known for their attention to detail. Custom grips, double-crown forks, semi-integrated headsets, CNC-machined aluminum chain wheels, custom matched valve caps, saddlebags and embossed saddle covers—these are just some of the things you’ll find that set Felt Cruisers apart.
Whether you prefer high style or simple, laid-back comfort, there’s a Felt Cruiser with your name all over it.
