The Draw: Future-proof bike for all distances
Felt’s new entry in the world of disc-equipped frames comes in an excellent package that doesn’t cut corners. This build includes not only aluminum Zipp disc-brake training wheels, but more importantly the excellent SRAM hydraulic disc brake electronic shifting system. Coupled with a moderately aggressive frame that cuts corners tightly, but predictably, this is a ride that finds a middle ground between tune-out straight-line stability and agility. The IA is also a surprisingly smooth ride and is a stable descender that actually shows quite a bit of flex on aggressive attacks. Bear in mind that—while not a particularly aggressive saddle-to-bar drop—the IA’s cockpit runs tight per size right out of the box.
