WANT YOUR OWN FELT TA FRD? HERE’S HOW.
The Felt TA FRD is the most advanced track bike in the world, and it features a level of integration that is rivaled only by its groundbreaking level of performance. Because of this integration, each TA FRD is tailored to the specific fit of each individual rider. Follow the steps below to begin your journey to the TA FRD.
TA FRD MODULE
The TA FRD is the most revolutionary track racing bicycle that Felt has ever created. Its frame, fork and seatpost were designed from the ground up to achieve maximum aerodynamic efficiency for the pursuit discipline. This was accomplished through several years of intense research and the resulting application of asymmetrical tube shapes, airfoils honed specifically for the velodrome, a radical left-hand drive system and ground-breaking construction methods.
HED RACE WHEELS
Because wheels are an integral part of a racing bicycle, the TA FRD frameset was aerodynamically optimized for use with the Volo from HED Cycling. With a lightweight, hollow carbon construction and an internal rib design, along with CERAMICSPEED coated bearings, the Volo is the stiffest disc wheel in HED’s history and is the ideal complement to the industry leading aerodynamic efficiency of the TA FRD frameset module.
HED TRAIN WHEELS
In addition to the HED Volo race day wheelset, the TA FRD comes with a second set of wheels in the form of HED Stinger 6 tubulars laced to proprietary Phil Wood hubs. Incredibly aerodynamic and insanely fast in their own right, the HED Stinger 6 wheels are perfect for any situation when full discs are not required.
VISION RACE CRANK AND CHAINRINGS
In order to fully realize the aerodynamic potential of a left-hand drive system, Felt partnered with FSA to adapt the latter’s most aerodynamic Vision Metron crankset for the TA FRD. This race day crankset features a Stages Power Meter fitted to the non-drive crankarm, interchangeable 50, 51, 53, 54 and 55-tooth chainrings, and is available in 170mm or 172.5mm crankarm lengths.
VISION TRAIN CRANK AND CHAINRINGS
In addition to the race day FSA Vision Metron crankset, the TA FRD also comes with a 144 BCD crankset from FSA for logging endless practice runs at the velodrome, or for whenever maximum aero efficiency is not required. Like the race day crankset, this version comes with interchangeable 50, 51, 53, 54 and 55-tooth chainrings that are easier to swap than the included race crank, and are available in either 170mm or 172.5mm crankarm lengths.
STAGES POWER METER
Performing at your highest level requires incredible dedication, as well as the utilization of the most advanced componentry available. That’s why your purchase of the TA FRD includes the aerodynamically optimized FSA Vision Metron crankset, which comes fitted with a Stages Power Meter. This crankarm-based power meter adds a scant 20 grams of weight while providing +/-2% accuracy, 200+ hours of run time thanks to a ubiquitous CR2032 battery, tool-free battery replacement, and both ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart compatibility.
PHIL WOOD COGS AND LOCKRINGS
For over 45 years, Phil Wood & Co. has been producing some of the finest cycling componentry in the world, with the company’s track bike cogs being widely regarded as the best available thanks to precision manufacturing. The TA FRD comes with four proprietary spline-drive, 3/32” Phil Wood rear cogs (13, 14, 15 and 16-tooth) that, along with the included multiple FSA chainrings, give you the ability to fine-tune your gearing setup for any training session or race day.
CERAMICSPEED COATED BEARINGS AND CHAIN
In order to unlock every bit of performance potential form both the TA FRD and its rider, Felt has included a CERAMICSPEED BB30 bottom bracket with each and every TA FRD purchase. One of the world leaders in high-performance componentry, CERAMICSPEED developed its bottom bracket with coated ceramic bearings designed for maximum efficiency and impeccable durability, saving you both valuable watts and ensuring bearing longevity. The TA FRD also features a CERAMICSPEED UFO chain, and its specially developed wax coating mitigates friction, thereby saving you more energy (between two and five watts) than traditionally constructed and lubricated bicycle chains.
TRI ALL 3 SPORTS BIKE BOX
To help protect your investment in a TA FRD, Felt has included with your purchase a Pro-Series case from Tri All 3 Sports. Crafted from High Molecular Weight Polyethylene for exceptional durability, the Pro-Series case features two external straps and a lockable steel latch system for security, as well as four heavy-duty casters for ease of mobility. The bike box’s internals are completely custom and made specifically to fit the TA FRD’s 70mm fork, as well as all of the proprietary parts that come with the TA FRD.
