The TA FRD (Track Aero Felt Racing Development) is the most advanced track-racing bicycle that the world has ever seen. Designed specifically for pursuit races, the TA FRD’s patent-pending features include revolutionary asymmetrical airfoils and a unique left-hand drivetrain for the ultimate in aerodynamic efficiency on the velodrome.
The left-hand drive system is made possible with proprietary components developed in partnership with HED, FSA, Stages Cycling and Phil Wood. To meet the racing and training demands of the modern pursuit racer, Felt has collaborated with these partners to develop two cranks, two sets of chainrings and two wheelsets. All of these “Race” and “Train” components are included with the TA FRD. Because Felt is intimately aware of the personal preferences of elite athletes, the TA FRD is not provided with saddle, chain or tires.
