A new Breed of riding

Gravel is here, and it’s the new breed of cycling. (See what we did there?) Sure, riding drop bars on dirt isn’t a new thing. Folks in the countryside will rightfully point out that it’s been a way of life for many cyclists for as long as people have been turning circles. Shoot, even old codgers remind us that the Tour de France began on gravel roads way back in the days of yore. But these days, there are more eyeballs on the gravel riding scene, more legs in the game, and more minds opening up to the wonderful world of off-road adventure. And it’s awesome. That’s why we created the Breed. To chase the sunset across empty gravel roads. To discover a new perspective along our local trails. And to further expand the incredible freedom a bicycle can offer. So whether you’re just discovering a new way of riding, or are a dyed-in-the-wool gravel grinding veteran, the Breed is for you.

WHERE THE PAVEMENT ENDS, ADVENTURE BEGINS


MODERN GRAVEL GEOMETRY

In this day and age of hyper focused bikes designed for only one purpose, it takes a truly special kind of bike to perform across a variety of conditions. The essence of the Breed is its geometry, which was developed after years of testing drop-bar bikes across every road, trail, and off-highway route we could find. It’s on the gravel where the Breed truly shines. Loose terrain demands ultra precise steering control, while epic adventures across open country demand the ability to handle the rough stuff all day long. When civilization looms near and the road becomes paved, the Breed is ready with impeccable road bike-like manners, making for a stable ride that can sprint with the best of ’em while putting in the work mile after paved mile.

DUAL WHEEL COMPATIBILITY

Who says you can’t have it all? Different wheel sizes give you the freedom to run whatever size or type of tire you wish. That’s why we made the Breed compatible with both 650b and 700c wheel sizes. It comes standard with 650b hoops which, when fitted with massive WTB tires, preserves the Breed’s geometry for a road bike feel but with mind-blowing cushion for ripping off-road trails. The Breed can also be outfitted with the traditional road bike wheel size of 700c, if that’s your thing. Either way, you can run some huge rubber, so no route is unreachable.

TIRE CLEARANCE

For the roughest of roads, gravel or otherwise, fatter tires are more fun. Period. Recognizing the trend for wider tires and rims, Felt engineers designed the Breed to accommodate the vast majority of off-road- and gravel-oriented tires on the market today. In the name of both safety and performance, ISO standards call for 6mm of clearance on either side of the tire on a bike like the Breed. This means that the Breed can utilize up to a measured 45mm-wide tire on a 700c wheel, or a 2.0-inch-wide tire on a 650b wheel.

DISC BRAKES & THRU-AXLES

Disc brakes are the new standard for drop-handlebar bikes in all riding conditions. They provide more stopping power, greater modulation, and more consistent performance than rim brakes, especially when the weather turns nasty. The Breed utilizes the Flat Mount disc brake standard for the best in performance and security, as well as clean aesthetics. Complementing the Breed’s disc brakes are 12mm thru-axles, which provide a more secure interface over traditional quick-release skewers, along with better stiffness for quicker acceleration, better handling, and crisper shifting.

SLEEK STORAGE SOLUTIONS

Whether it’s a spare tube, tool kit, or some snacks, all-day riding excursions may require extra supplies. The Breed features a mounting location along the top tube for installing a “bento box” storage bag. The two-bolt setup features standard water bottle cage spacing, which gives riders the freedom to utilize a wide selection of aftermarket storage solutions. For those who get extra thirsty during a long day in the saddle, the Breed features three water bottle mounting locations inside the front triangle (for frame sizes 51cm and larger).

RACK & FENDER CAPABLE

Looking for a ride that can haul enough gear for a weekend bikepacking adventure, or everything you’ll need on your daily commute? The Breed has you covered. It comes with a fender hardware kit in order to mount the vast majority of rain-combatting options on the market, and it also features cleverly hidden rack mounts for both utility and sleek aesthetics. Simple integration means that when it’s time to ditch the baggage and race your buddies up and down technical trails, the Breed is ready, like a superhero shedding its street clothes to speed off and save the day.

T47 BOTTOM BRACKET

Yes, there are more bottom bracket standards in the world than you can shake a stick at. But we love the T47 standard. It has all of the benefits of old-school threaded bottom brackets, like creak-free performance and easy maintenance. But it also takes advantage of the latest technology to maximize stiffness for putting down all the watts. It’s durable and gets the job done exceptionally well, just like the Breed. And did we mention that it’s virtually creak-free?!
