Felt ZW5 2013 Women's Road Bike. With women's-specific components including custom-shaped handlebars and an ergonomic saddle, the ZW5 blends comfort and performance in a package that's designed just for female riders. The UHC Performance carbon fibre frame and fork give the ZW5 a lightweight, zippy ride quality on par with many pro road bike models.
The goal of Felt's ZW Series is to honestly address the unique needs of women cyclists from both an engineering standpoint and an athlete's perspective. Many manufacturers introduce women's bikes by simply switching some parts, such as saddles and handlebars, and changing the frame graphics to set them apart from men's models. But Felt started the entire design and engineering process from scratch. Redesigned for 2013, the ZW is faster than ever before. Engineers meticulously analysed the frame looking for ways to improve performance and ride quality. The result is a frame that is 25% stiffer and 50g lighter than the previous generation ZW all without compromising its distinct ride characteristics. As with everything that Felt designs, the ZW is focused on performance. Felt's Pro women's team Exergy TWENTY12 have ridden the ZW to multiple victories in some of the most prestigious races in the world. The ZW is stiff enough for unmatched efficiency, light enough to keep the pros flying over hills, and designed with size-appropriate vertical compliance.
