Felt Nine 80 29er 2014 -
With cutting edge frame technology and a superior ride quality, Felts Nine Series blends the surefooted handling characteristics of 29er wheels with race bred performance to provide their ultimate lightweight MTB machine. Its a blend of lightweight Dynaform butted 6061 aluminium, with its semi-integrated head tub and standard 73mm bottom bracket, and plush 100mm travel forks that rip across the trail easily all powered by a Suntour triple chainset, with the help from SRAMs X4 and Shimano Altus drivetrain components.
At your disposal you have 24 gears to play with and as mentioned above, this is based around a triple chainset (42/32/22). This means you can power up the steepest of climbs and race your way along your favourite trails with ease. Taking the hits at the front end of the Felt Nine 80 is a pair of SR Suntour XCT forks. These provide 100mm of travel and are ideal for when the terrain is rocky, or when riding through the trails over roots etc.
Taking you across this terrain are a set of wheels that come wrapped with a pair of Continental X-King 29er tyres providing superior grip at all times. The 29" wheel has established itself as the most popular MTB wheel size for good reason. The benefits are simple to understand. A bigger wheel rolls over bumps better than a smaller wheel: this increases control, builds confidence, maintains momentum and makes you faster. The big wheels also provide extra traction in corners and off cambers as more rubber is in touch with the ground.
When at speed you also need to slow down and stop. This is taken care of thanks to the Tektro Novella mechanical disc brakes that clamp around a pair of 160mm rotors. Great braking in all weathers, including wet weather, is guaranteed so giving you the confidence in knowing you will stop when required.
Since introduced, Felt has earned the reputation for getting it right among elite mountain bike riders by getting the characteristics of a 29er hardtail exactly right in the rider cockpit area and weight distribution, so providing an excellent fit with great performance no matter what Nine you are on. For 2014, the Nine has emerged faster and more efficient than ever and available in five sizes.
So wherever the trail takes you, the Nine 80 is up for the challenge. If a World Cup XC pro, a Marathon specialist, or a recreational rider, the Felt Nine 80 is a machine to think about when wanting a new bike purchase. Each Felt Nine is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggles team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure youre bike arrives in perfect condition.
