The New IA » Internally referred to as the IAx, Felt's new IA frame slides in as a lower-priced alternative to the fully-integrated bike it released two years ago. The new model has a chassis just as fast (actually faster) than the previous bike, and standard interfaces to make life easier (and less expensive) for the end user.

Felt continues to refine the IA lineup with the bikes you see here, internally called the IAx, but officially still just the IA. The new bike retains the aero design of the original, including tube shapes, integrated bento box, and narrow front end. See the complete article for lots more details.

The New IA 

Internally referred to as the IAx, Felt's new IA frame slides in as a lower-priced alternative to the fully-integrated bike it released two years ago. The new model has a chassis just as fast (actually faster) than the previous bike, and standard interfaces to make life easier (and less expensive) for the end user.

  • Frontal profile of the new IA. This could be improved with other bars and brakes, an upgrade new IA owners may do in the future.
  • Felt's new angular logo, laid on top of some lovely nude carbon and minimal graphics.
  • Felt's new Aerolite AL stem offers some nice cable management to help keep the front a little cleaner.
