It is a necessary skill for maintaining and increasing speeds in group situations such as chasing down or creating breaks in races, or getting through windy stretches as quickly as possible. By taking turns riding in the wind with the others positioned behind, riders can save up to 30% of their energy while sitting in the draft.

Irvine, CA – Felt’s flagship model, the F1, is meticulously engineered and crafted with one clear purpose: to win. The all-new F1 uses Felt’s cutting-edge carbon fiber manufacturing techniques—Modular Monocoque Construction and InsideOut internally optimized molding—to shave 100 grams off the 2010 F1 while increasing overall stiffness by 35 percent. With race-ready Dura-Ace Di2 electronic shifting components and Mavic Carbone Ultimate wheels, this race rocket weighs in under 14 pounds. And with its new ControlTaper headtube and oversized BB30 carbon bottom bracket shell, it handles like a dream.
