Felt, Garmin introduce limited edition AR5 with Garmin Edge 500

Wednesday, February 10, 2010
Felt has partnered with Garmin on an exclusive new promotion. A limited edition Felt AR5 model—unavailable until now and available only through this promo—will be offered as a special package that includes the new Garmin Edge 500 GPS-based cycling computer at no additional price.
Felt and Garmin are both key sponsors of the Garmin-Transitions ProTour road racing team. “We came up with this idea of a limited edition bike to help Garmin launch the Edge 500,” said Felt National Sales Director John Georger. “We wanted to showcase our Aero Road frame design and match it up with the hottest new technology from Garmin.”

Featuring an aerodynamic High Modulus carbon fiber frameset, a Shimano 105 drivetrain and a deluxe package of Felt parts including the Aero R4 wheelset, the AR5 has an MSRP of $2999.

The Edge 500 is Garmin’s newest lightweight GPS-based cycling computer. In addition to all the standard cycling computer features, it allows riders to track elevation changes and provides access to the online service Garmin Connect, where riders can review and share GPS data. The base version retails for $249, but the special upgrade version included in this promo also features cadence and a heart-rate monitor, and retails for $349.

As part of the promo, Felt is offering reduced-rate consumer financing for 6 or 12 months.
