Josh Amberger is one of the most popular and unique stars in professional triathlon. Widely regarded as the best swimmer in the sport, Josh has been first out of the water in the past three Kona World Championship events. Although the global COVID-19 pandemic has caused professional racing to be put on hiatus for much fo the 2020 season, we still set Josh up with a brand-new race bike for the year, which includes a custom paint scheme developed in conjunction with Josh himself. Check out the photo gallery below, along with a breakdown of all of the parts for Josh's custom build! (And click here to have a peek at Josh's bike from last season.)
JOSH AMBERGER: "I've been riding this bike for eight seasons now, so I'm very well used to the geometry and the feel of the bike. However, we've found a way to make the bike look better and better each year. I had to push the team pretty hard to make me a brown bike, but after some 'ums' and 'ahs,' the guys at Felt came through and I think the finished look is really special, and it looks insanely unique."
JOSH AMBERGER: "If an athlete is keen to build up an IA frame, I would recommend selecting the disc brake option. It is stiffer and more reliable, plus much safer for urban training environments. I like Sram Red AXS because it's a fantastic groupset, but also super easy to install. I can knock these builds out really quickly. I selected 1x because the gear ratio is really well-tuned to triathlon racing over flatter courses with a big 52x10 low gear option for the fast tail winds in Kona, or the non-technical descents that we typically see in triathlon racing. With this groupset, I also have a reasonable low gear range at the top for some punchier climbs."
We're thrilled to announce our new partnership with Thomson Bike Tours, one of the most renowned cycling tourism organizations in the world. We'll be equipping them with the latest Felt road and gravel bikes to help further elevate the riding experience of their first-class cycling adventures.
