The IA FRD is the pinnacle of Felt’s history as an industry leader in aerodynamics and performance. Four-time, undefeated winner of the Kona World Championship, the IA boasts incredible aerodynamic efficiency that surpasses everything the competition has to offer. As part of the Felt Racing Development (FRD) line, the IA FRD is crafted from the most advanced carbon fiber and is equipped with the highest-performance components on the market including Shimano's Dura-Ace Di2 electronic drivetrain and Zipp 404 carbon wheelset, making for the ultimate triathlon racing machine.
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 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.
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 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.
