Felt Z3 Gloss Carbon – Road Bike CarbonPure efficiency, first class comfort and electronical shifting. Both of these specifications are combined in an outstanding way in this bike.Whether you’re racing a Gran Fondo or the Tour de France, the
perfect bicycle is one that delivers lightning quick performance
at any speed, and at the same time provides the compliance
and fit necessary to make even the longest ride enjoyable.
Enter the new 2013 Z Series. Building on an already successful
heritage, the new Z-line is specifically designed to meld top-tier
performance with the ability to be ridden all day into one single
purebred road bike.
Take a look at some of the bikes used by pros on long, grueling
races and you’ll notice they were a bit different than those that
are popular today. They were built to be stable on fast descents
and featured a slightly more upright rider position. They had
longer wheelbases and offered excellent vibration damping—
proven ways to reduce fatigue. These ride characteristics are
central to the design goals of the Z.
Z Series frames use a slightly longer head tube for more flexibility
in handlebar and rider positioning. They feature a sloping top
tube for increased stand-over clearance, and they benefit from
improved vertical compliance due to a more exposed seatpost.
The Z also features a slightly longer wheelbase for confident
handling at any speed.
For 2013, Felt has updated the venerable Z Series with an
all new frame design that improves performance and comfort.
Engineers used computer analysis and real world data to revamp
the Z from top to bottom. Improved tube shapes, more efficient
carbon layups, and optimized tube intersections result in a Z
that is 25% stiffer, 50g lighter, and even smoother than previous
Whether you choose a Z model built from super-premium UHC
Ultimate+Nano carbon fiber and cutting-edge electronic Shimano
Di2 shifting, or one of the lightweight aluminum/carbon fiber
models, you’ll get the same assured handling and race-worthy
stiffness. It’s a ride that’s as responsive as it is confidenceinspiring.
All Z Series bikes are built with the right components for the
ideal fit, plus gearing for any terrain and unmatched reliability.
Each bike is equipped with either a compact or triple crankset
combined with a wide-range cassette to help you tackle hills. If
ever there was a bike to inspire you to reach new heights, the Z
