Details

The AR FRD is the best-performing aero road bike in the world, having delivered countess wins in road races and criteriums at the professional level. Developed using CFD software and perfected in the wind tunnel, this aero road bike is up to 31% faster than typical round tube road frames. With a Felt UHC Ultimate + TeXtreme carbon fiber frame, a Shimano Dura Ace Di2 drivetrain and top-of-the-line Zipp 404 NSW carbon wheels, the AR FRD is a no-holds-barred speed machine, ready to deliver you to the top step of the podium.

Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.

Electronic shifting delivers exceptional performance.

Shifting Performance

Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.

Electronic shifting is customizable.

Customization

Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.

Electronic shifting is light on the maintenance.

Dependability

Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
