Now it’s 2017, Felt has taken over from Colnago as bike sponsor to the Crelan-Charles team of current World Champion Wout van Aert. It’s launched a new top spec crosser for the team too.

The F1x is available in two builds and as a frameset. The top spec F1x Di2 comes with an interesting single ring Dura-Ace Di2 build. There are two Dura-Ace Di2 hydraulic shifters, but they both operate the rear mech. At the front there’s a Rotor XC1 single chainset, which is supplied with a 40 tooth elliptical Q Ring, although this can be swapped out for the supplied circular NoQ ring if you prefer.
