Felt has just gone all-in on the tri market, releasing a brand new model called the IA. This 'Integrated Aero' bike has massive frame members, internal storage, integrated brakes and bars, and a radical new seatpost design that promises greater comfort on the bike. The IA is the first bike from Felt that truly embraces the concept of an integrated design. The aerobars, stem, brakes, and on-frame storage units are now completely proprietary and unique to this bike (along with, as usual, the fork, seatpost, and headset). The aero chords created by the frame are easily the longest on the market, and promise to be extra slippery in the wind. This gallery (and the detailed image captions) contain all the ins and outs of this brand new mean machine. Enjoy!
As you can see, the name of Integrated Aero is quite fitting on a bike with this level of proprietary parts. Much like the Trek Speed Concept and other top-end tri bikes, you are basically locked into these particular component choices, which are designed to provide optimal aerodynamics when working together. So far, this is the only configuration of the bike we were able to see. No word yet on just exactly how the bike adjusts, whether there will be multiple stem options, etc. But we do know that the Bayonet aerobar adjusts exactly like the version we saw last year on the DA. It's a great bar, and does have substantial room to change stack, reach, roll, and stance width.
