The Felt Z5 and it’s sister, the ZW5, are two of our most popular road bikes for many reasons. The carbon frame is lightweight. The Shimano 105 drivetrain is a workhorse, that will provide years of crisp shifting. The paint and finish of both bikes are superb. But most of all, these Z series bikes just seem to fit our customers better. In a sport where comfort often translates into speed, this is important.
Comfort is motivation to get out and ride. Comfort is the ability to trust the handling of your bike, so that controlling it becomes a background event. The brakes and shifters are an extension of your hands, always in the right place when you need them. The cockpit of your bike is home base, and in spite of the chaos surrounding you, this thing, this little bike is a bit of calm in the storm.
Probably… We have a tendency to wax poetic about cycling. We love it, and everyday we see the difference a properly fit bike can make to someone's enjoyment of the sport.
