Felt puts a great deal of effort toward supporting competitive track racers trying to achieve their dreams. Whether it’s sprint events or distance events, there’s no room for error on the velodrome, and developing bikes for World Champions like Sarah Hammer and Elite track teams like Project London keeps Felt on the cutting edge of technology. In track racing, it’s one bike, one gear—and the results don’t lie.
Like the DA time trial/triathlon bike, the TK1 uses Felt’s UHC Ultimate+Nano carbon fiber, unsurpassed for its ability to make lightweight, stiff, ride-tuned performance bikes. Just as with the DA, the TK1 was engineered using powerful, cutting-edge CFD software and extensive aerodynamic analysis. Once the materials were chosen, Felt engineers applied proven geometry to give the bike precise, track-specific handling characteristics.
For 2012, Felt has developed two distinct versions of the TK1—the TK1 Sprint and the TK1 Endurance. The TK1 Sprint retains the same aerodynamic shape and carbon fiber layup that has delivered Felt athletes to national and world titles. The TK1 Sprint will include an all-new standard fork that delivers unparalleled rigidity and precision.
The TK1 Endurance also maintains the wind-slicing shape of the previous TK1, but trims nearly 300g in weight. Up front, the groundbreaking Bayonet™ Steering System has been continually refined, and the TK1 Endurance comes equipped with the latest Bayonet 2 Track fork/stem/handlebar combination.
All of Felt’s track bikes, including the TK2 and TK3, have developed a loyal following among track racers from beginner to pro. The TK2 and TK3 use the same aerodynamic know-how of the pro-level bikes and are engineered with lightweight, responsive aluminum frame tubing.
All Felt track bikes feature quality touches such as CNC-machined dropouts and internally-machined bottom bracket shells. While the TK1 is available only as a frameset, the TK2 and TK3 come as complete bikes with parts chosen to optimize their track-racing abilities.
Find out for yourself why Felt track bikes have developed such a hardcore following among such a wide variety of racers. Whether you’re a World Champion or a Wednesday night champion, Felt offers the fastest way to get around the track.
