Product Description

For every adventure down the road. The Felt VR40 is a comfortable and efficient endurance bike for discovering a new road cycling experience.

Striking the ideal balance between all-day comfort and high-performance cycling, the custom butted 6061 aluminium frame features an endurance-oriented geometry which offers a comfortable and efficient riding position.

The VR offers a smooth ride, even over rough road surfaces, thanks to the endurance-tuned compliance. The rear triangle features bridgeless seat stays that are positioned outboard of the seatube and are tuned to ensure maximum rear wheel compliance while maintaining lateral stiffness for efficient power transfer. The fork has carbon fibre blades which further improve comfort by absorbing ‘road buzz’.

Ready to take on rough road adventures tyre clearance is greater than most road bikes and the VR can handle up to 30mm wide tyres. Through axles front and rear add stiffness while mudguard mounts allow you to fit extra winter protection.

With a super-compact chainset and wide range cassette the Shimano Tiagra 2x10 speed drivetrain gives you reliable shifting with all the gears that you need to ride every road, including the steepest of climbs. The Shimano hydraulic disc brakes offer powerful stopping control in all weather conditions.

Extend you ride and improve your riding experience on the Felt VR40 road bike.

Perfect for the adventurous road rider

I'm very happy with this bike. Coming from a mountain bike background I wanted a bike that was road focused but able to handle the bumpy tarmac bike paths and gravel forestry tracks that you find in South Wales. Also needed something of a mountain goat to haul me up the many climbs we are blessed with. Took a punt on the VR40 as it ticked all the boxes; tiagra or better, hydraulic disc brakes, aluminium frame with focus on comfort, lots of bottle mounts, compact gearing but still light and racy. I love it. Only complaint is the super compact chsinset means running out of gears on the downhills but that is an easy upgrade. Tyres are skinny for a gravel bike but have stood up to the chunky gravel forestry roads well so far. Surprisingly capable off road. Chuffed to bits.
