The Felt Virtue pedals and rides so well it’s become our go-to all-mountain 29er. Nearly everyone we put on this bike raves about it. With smart Equilink® suspension, a brilliant carbon frame design and cutting-edge geometry, the Felt Virtue bike is a shining light in a world of full-suspension 29ers that handle like trucks. The phenomenal strength-to-weight ratio of Felt’s proprietary UHC Advanced TeXtreme® carbon fiber allowed them to produce a long-travel 29er that weighs in at just over 26 pounds (11.8kg). It climbs and pedals like a race bike and descends with power and fluidity thanks to 130mm of travel in the back and 140mm in the front.

The Felt Virtue is in a class of bikes some people call 29ers that handle like 26ers. Short chainstays, a low bottom bracket, 69° head angle and a relatively short wheelbase take maximum advantage of the big wheels for cornering, traction and responsive handling that makes the bike hungry for twisty, rocky terrain. With intuitive handling, great stability and long-travel suspension, the Felt Virtue is a bike that’s fun for everyone.

Wheel Size: 29″ (also called 29er)
Suspension: 130mm (4.92″) of rear travel with Felt’s proprietary 6-bar Equilink® system and a 140mm (5.5″) Rockshox Revelation fork in the front make the Virtue a ferocious climber that descends with smooth, confidence-inspiring precision.
Frame Material: The Virtue 1’s distinctive checkerboard finish is more than just aesthetics. Felt’s proprietary UHC Advanced TeXtreme® carbon fiber is widely-regarded as some of the most advanced in the industry. The TeXtreme carbon fiber and special manufacturing processes are the secret to the Virtue 1’s low weight and stiff, efficient performance. Check out this video by Felt to learn more about how their approach to carbon fiber frame design sets them apart.
Handling: The Felt Virtue is one of the best-handling 29er trail bikes we’ve ridden. Its relatively tight wheelbase, short chainstays, sharp geometry and excellent suspension make it stable, confidence-inspiring and quick – not very many full-suspension 29ers can make that claim.
