Details

Felt utilized years of wind tunnel research for their super-fast DA2, and the results show in a peerless machine that has won Olympic Golds and the team time trial at the Giro d'Italia. The Advanced-carbon frame, fork, and aluminum stem were developed as an integrated unit for incredible aerodynamics and steering precision. Further brilliant aero touches include the chainstay-mounted brake, aero seatpost, horizontal rear dropouts and wheel cutouts. Even the cables are kept out of the wind thanks to internal routing that enters the frame just behind the stem. The amazing technology continues as Shimano's incredible Ultegra Di2 electric shifting system enables you to shift from the extensions or the base bar with the mere touch of a button. Also, insanely-fast Reynolds-made deep-dish carbon wheels and feathery Bayonet carbon aero bars keep the speed up and the weight down. See you on the podium.

Felt's MMC (Modular Monocoque Construction) method is an advanced carbon manufacturing process that allows Felt to mold individual sections of a frame (see image above) prior to assembly. This allows each frame section to be optimized for its individual requirements before being fused together. The result is a frame with completely integrated joints that offer superior strength, durability and a refined appearance.

Comments:

I actually have a 2012 DA1, but the specs - weight, carbon layup, etc. - are almost identical to the DA2. I have a Dura Ace Di2 gruppo rather than the Ultegra Di2, but having ridden both (Ultegra on road bike), I can't tell much of a difference. In short, this bike is a rocketship. If you are fast, you will be faster on this bike. This is also a bike that can be easily fit to the average rider - no Olympic gymnast flexibility required. I've been comfy on century training rides in aero position. My one comment is that the rear, integrated brake can be difficult to adjust, and it although a wider carbon wheelset (e.g. Firecrest) will fit, it takes some fiddling. Having said that, if you can buy this bike, do it. You won't regret it.
