2016 Felt ZW6 Disc
Everyone should ride a bike that’s designed to fit their body, needs and budget. With custom carbon tubing, geometry and componentry designed specifically for women, the Felt ZW6 Disc is part of Felt’s “Fit Woman” road bike line. It’s a high-performance road bike for ladies who don’t want to take out a second mortgage on the house. The ZW6 Disc has a carbon fiber frame and fork, disc brakes and a Shimano drivetrain – all of which have been thoroughly vetted, tested and approved by Felt’s female athletes and employees.
Felt is an established leader in carbon fiber bicycle frame design and they make some of the lightest, strongest and most sophisticated carbon in the business. The ZW6 Disc gets Felt’s Fit Woman Road Disc UHC Performance carbon fiber. It’s significantly more affordable than their top-of-the-line frame material but still as light and strong as the carbon in many manufacturers’ top-of-the-line race bikes. The Felt ZW6 Disc isn’t just a smaller version of a men’s road bike, either. Felt uses specially-developed carbon tubing with a smaller cross section to custom tune their Fit Woman frames for a “responsive and confident ride.”
Disc brakes are one of the latest innovations for road bikes and we’re really pleased to offer them in an affordable women’s-specific model. They’re safe, easy to use and they’ve proven themselves on high-end mountain bikes for over a decade. While they can provide more stopping power, disc brakes are really about safety. Better modulation and consistent performance regardless of weather and road conditions mean you’ll be safer and more confident on a bike with disc brakes.
Rounding out the package, the Felt ZW6 Disc has a 9-speed Shimano Sora drivetrain with Dual Control levers, a female-specific saddle, short-reach handlebars and a Felt Fit Woman disc wheelset with Vittoria’s versatile Challenge Paris-Roubaix tires. Beginning cyclist, weekend warrior or backroads enthusiast – the Felt ZW6 Disc offers outstanding value and performance for women cyclists of all types.
|Women’s-Specific Design::||Felt’s commitment to women is more than just skin deep. Many women’s bikes are simply repackaged men’s models with smaller frames and flowery, pastel graphics (the skin). That’s not the case with the ZW6 Disc and the rest of Felt’s Fit Woman line, though. With custom tubing, geometry and componentry that’s female-tested and approved, the Felt ZW6 Disc will make women feel confident and comfortable in the saddle|
|Disc Brakes:||Although disc brakes are relatively new to road bikes, they’re quickly being accepted and we believe they make riding safer, more comfortable and more fun. The most obvious benefit of disc brakes is more predictable performance on wet roads. However, better modulation means more control no matter what the conditions are. The Felt ZW6’s TRP Spyre disc brakes are cable-actuated, making them easy to adjust and maintain.|
|Carbon Frame:||One of the most respected carbon fiber manufacturers in the bike industry, Felt makes carbon frames for all types of riders and budgets. The female-specific ZW6 Disc frame uses women’s-specific custom tubing constructed from Felt’s own UHC Performance carbon fiber. The result is a bike that’s light, efficient and tuned especially for women.|
