Felt introduced their 2014 mountain bike line up with some killer refinements, technology and the addition of the Virtue 29 models. Felt's long travel models continue to use the Equilink 6-bar suspension platform that has been refined and enhanced with new pivot axles and hardware, while the shorter travel bikes use the FAST suspension platform (Felt Active Stay Technology).
