So sexy...

I would suggest AR fans keep a keen eye on rally uhc for a new ar, especially as we get closer to the tour.
Rally-UHC has one of the better bikes in Pro Cycling this season, in my opinion. The gumwalls really pop but also jive with the white and orange. I would buy one of those in an instant if the team ever sold them.

Got an update on this. A Felt sponsored amateur USA women’s team has been chosen to showcase the Felt AR Disc. They should be getting the bikes before the fall, and I imagine some media will be informed shortly after it happens. Whenever I get a glimpse of them I’ll get a picture onto this thread.

Felt is selling the frame. Check the website and facebook.

Cool, that is probably rally UHC. They got a wildcard invite to the female tour equivalent (i think a shorter prologue event).

Please let the bike not be a metallic two tone fade that is now on trend. Felt is usually on the money for asthetics however.

You are likely right. But where did you hear this?

From what I’ve heard, it’s more of a grass roots crit team which surprises me because this would be a pretty big release for Felt.

The fact that they are going to only release one frame and the fact that all of UHC is on disc brake bikes

Rally UHC is going to be competing at Tour of Swiss this week.. If they are going to pick anytime to bust out the new aero road bike, this would be it. As this is the biggest race the team has ever done.

I’m debating between the Madone (rim brake), this, and a new Canyon Aeroroad. I’m desperately hoping there will be run brake versions of the latter two and that we’ll see them by the tour

Womens race at the tour finished and no announcement. Seemed like a good time to release the bike. Sounds like the grass routs team tip is our best chance for release.

Well, it should be announced soon. 😁

Here is the old one for comparison. Seems to be an evolution vs revoltion. Disc brakes. Frame hugs the wheels more, redesigned head tube. Massive stem (looks like a deep airfoil). Slightly dropped seatstays. But given it was within a few watts of the best before, and hidden cables saves 3w... i suspect it will stay near the top at least.
