Felt Z95 2013 Road Bike. Built with Felt1s Superlite custom-butted 6061 aluminium tubing, the frame of the Z95 forms the heart of this performance road machine. Lightweight, dependable, and as quick as it is comfortable, the Z95 is equally suitable for short training rides or epic weekend adventures. A UHC Performance carbon fibre fork and Shimano Sora STI drivetrain, including compact cranks for a wide range of gearing, complete the Z95 performance package.
Whether you're racing a Gran Fondo or the Tour de France, the perfect bicycle is one that delivers lightning quick performance at any speed, and at the same time provides the compliance and fit necessary to make even the longest ride enjoyable. Enter the new 2013 Z Series. Building on an already successful heritage, the new Z-line is specifically designed to meld top-tier performance with the ability to be ridden all day into one single pure bred road bike. Take a look at some of the bikes used by pros on long, gruelling races and you'll notice they were a bit different than those that are popular today. They were built to be stable on fast descents and featured a slightly more upright rider position. They had longer wheelbases and offered excellent vibration damping-proven ways to reduce fatigue. These ride characteristics are central to the design goals of the Z. Z Series frames use a slightly longer head tube for more flexibility in handlebar and rider positioning. They feature a sloping top tube for increased stand-over clearance, and they benefit from improved vertical compliance due to an enhanced frame cockpit layout. The Z also features a slightly longer wheelbase for confident handling at any speed.
