The Superlite 7005 aluminum frame is double butted for a solid feel. This frame features forged horizontal dropouts with stainless steel inserts, for added durability. The handlebar of the F15X is 6061 aluminum. This bike is equipped with Tektro high profile Euro-style cantilever brakes, which are made for precision stops. The xR3 700c 24mm deep aluminum rims of this bike are equipped with a CNC machined braking surface. This design helps with brake control. This bike differs from the lower cost Breed model in that it has more heavy duty components (such as carbon seat stays), and is also more lightweight (17.62 pounds as opposed to 18.27 pounds). However, this model lacks the higher cost F75X's maximum mud-shedding frame and fork. The Felt F15X road bike comes in a lime green color.
