The Felt AR1 is a high-performing and more affordable version of the world-class AR FRD. This aero bike is made with the same geometry as the FRD and is lightweight with an aero profile. You will thrive in time trials or sprints but will also feel comfortable on climbs and in the peloton. This bike gives you an aggressive riding position and great power transfer to help you hit your top speeds on the road.

Felt used CFD software to simulate how their aero bikes will perform in different wind conditions. This shows engineers what they can expect when they test the bike in the wind tunnel, so they can create tons of iterations of the frame. The wind tunnel was then used to confirm what the CDF suggested, and the perfect aero frame was born. A frame like this that can cut through the wind is essentially free speed for its rider, making it 31 percent faster than a typical rounded road tube.

The Felt AR1 keeps a low weight while saving you money thanks to its UHC Advanced + TeXtreme carbon fiber. They used Modular Monocoque Construction (MMC) to create this frame. Through this process, large sections of the frameset are molded then bonded together to reduce excess material and optimize the engineering of each section. While this is a time-consuming method, it gives you the best possible construction and the lowest weight for tough stage racing.

This bike comes with a high-performing aero seatpost similar to the one featured on the AR FRD. This seatpost both helps the AR1 cut through the wind and dissipate vibration from the road. These vibrations would typically take away from your performance and reach your muscles to cause extra fatigue. With the dampening provided by this seatpost, you will be able to go faster for longer. Every watt that you crank into your AR1 will translate into pure speed.

The Felt AR1 is a great bike to help you dominate the road at a more affordable price. This frame is very light and aerodynamic, so you can build the perfect bike to suit your racing needs whether it be a stage race or a time trial. An aggressive forward riding position will encourage you to aim for high speeds. Excellent pedaling efficiency will also help you hit your top speeds so you can hit your best times.
