Felt IA 2
The draw: Unadulterated speed
While some bike brands forgo a little aerodynamic performance for mechanical simplicity, Felt’s newest tri bike is fully committed to straight-line speed. Massively deep tubes and a highly integrated front end give this frame a wildly deep profile that has performed exceptionally well in aerodynamic testing. Crosswinds affect this bike a bit more than most, but it still handles well, quickly carving through tight turns. Fit adjustability is the biggest limitation: The basebar’s position is fixed. The Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 component kit is the world’s best, and Felt’s house brand aero wheels complete the race-worthy kit.
