Last week, the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships invaded Cairns, Australia, and Felt athletes put in some performances for the ages. Sina Frei, the reigning U23 European champion, shot out to the front of the field early on in the Women’s U23 event. She held off all of her competitors for a dominant performance and another rainbow jersey to add to her collection. A few days prior, Frei also won a world championship as part of the Swiss squad in the team relay event. Swiss rider Thomas Litscher rode an incredibly strong race in the Elite Men’s field, finishing in third place for a bronze medal. The race for the win was the tightest of all fields at this year’s World Championships, with Litscher crossing the finish line a mere 15 seconds behind the winner. Litscher earned his bronze medal aboard his Felt Edict race bike.
The men and women of Rally Cycling are the perfect candidates for the all-new AR, our best road bike ever. Check out the Pro Continental team's latest video, along with a photo gallery of the team’s early season training camp, which showcases Rally riders’ first experiences with the all-new AR road bike.
The all-new AR has arrived. We wanted it to not only be the most aerodynamic road bike we'd ever created, but also to climb well, to be comfortable enough for a long day in the saddle, and, most importantly, to descend like a dream. So when the first batch of bikes were built up, we wasted no time in taking them to one of our favorite proving grounds: the iconic Gibraltar Road in the city of Santa Barbara.
The all-new AR isn't just the fastest road bike we've ever created, it's better in every way than its predecessor. It's also a striking example of form following function, and the inherent beauty of vehicles that purpose-built for speed. So is it also the most beautiful road bike we've ever created? Check out the gallery and judge for yourself.
