In fast Ferrari red, the B2 from Felt certainly looks the part as a stylish testing machine, with a striking colourway and sleek, aerodynamic design.

The B2 is bang in the middle of the Felt TT range, and the first to offer the complete aerodynamic shape with bayonet fork and steerer.

The all-important drivetrain is equipped with an FSA Gossamer crank sporting 54/42 chainrings and a Shimano Dura-Ace mech at the rear. Together with the 12/25 cassette at the back, this offers a gear combo aimed at the aspirational time triallist.

Felt has made savings by including in-house elements such as the wheelset, brakes, handlebars and saddle, but rather than cheapen the look, stylish lines and colour touches ensure these parts enhance the overall aesthetics.

As you might expect the B2 only really starts to make sense when you begin to roll at higher speeds on better road surfaces, where the aerodynamic advantage comes into play. In fact, it moves so well the gearing on offer may quite quickly become inadequate for stronger riders on rolling courses, but a simple change of cassette would fix this.

A high level of adjustability at the saddle and stem enable you to get well over the bottom bracket, and tuck and drop your front end to match. This facility makes for a surprisingly comfortable ride once you have personalised your position.
