Either the idea of sprinting up a muddy hillside and then blasting back down a sketchy descent on a bike with skinny tires and drop bars sounds terrible, or it sounds like the most fun you’ve had all week.  For those looking to race all year long, cyclocross can be the perfect way to stay competitive and keep your fitness fine-tuned through the fall and winter months. Our FX-series bikes combine all the high -performance features of a serious ‘cross rig with real world versatility that makes it a practical addition to your quiver.

In cyclocross, having a lightweight bike that performs in terrible conditions is a must. It has to feel confident in dirt, sand, mud or snow, shift like new, stop instantly and be easily shouldered for dismounts. Failure to do any one of these can spoil your day in a hurry.

The heart of Felt cyclocross bikes is proprietary 7005 Superlite aluminum tubing. The frame and fork have maximum clearance to allow for mud shedding, and large tires for increased stability and traction. The down tube, chainstays and seatstays were reduced in diameter and the seat tube was butted to increase the frame’s compliance over the bumpy stuff.  The top tube is flattened on the underside so it’s a little friendlier on your shoulder. We included down tube-threaded cable stops for easy adjustment, one-piece dropouts for stiffness and reliability, and water bottle, rack and fender mounts for those who might want to use it as a commuter.

Whether you are just getting into ‘cross for some weekend fun or are preparing for a full race season, there is an FX just for you.
