Felt’s flagship full-suspension Virtue Series is designed to combine the agility and performance of a cross-country bike with the stability and control of an aggressive trail bike. The Virtue offers riders a unique blend of versatility and performance unparalleled in the industry. Whether you are looking for an off-road race machine, or an all-purpose trail bike, the Virtue has it covered.
The Virtue is built around Felt’s award-winning Equilink suspension system which can now be adjusted to either 120mm or 130mm to meet every off-road rider’s individual needs. The high-end 2012 Virtue models come with 130mm (120mm on the Virtue Sport) suspension forks, making it a perfect performer for epic XC or marathon riding and racing. Want to tackle more rugged terrain? Just switch the rear link position to gain an additional 10mm of rear travel.
Each Virtue is crafted to be as light and torsionally stiff as possible while also delivering a precise and confident feel. Engineers accomplished this by incorporating Felt’s ControlTaper headtube and top-of-the-line materials to the Virtue platform. Additionally, the geometry has been updated to give a more stable and efficient ride.
The Virtue Series features three levels of frames: a full alloy version with a new manufacturing technique that gives it a smoother, more organic look; an alloy/carbon blend that features a hydroformed aluminum front triangle and carbon fiber rear; and the dazzling new full-carbon model, which is constructed with Felt’s most advanced materials and processes including Dynamic Monocoque Construction and InsideOut Internally Optimized Molding Process.
Each Virtue features custom-valved rear shocks to keep the suspension active. While many frame designs rely on platform damping to reduce unwanted suspension movement, Felt’s Equilink allows the shock to do its job without the rider influencing suspension performance.
Ride any trail with more speed, comfort and efficiency than you ever dreamed possible. Ride Virtue.
