Sure, riding drop bars on dirt isn’t a new thing. Many folks will rightfully point out that it’s been a way of life for many cyclists for as long as people have been pedaling atop two wheels. Shoot, even historians remind us that the Tour de France began on gravel roads. 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. That’s why Felt created the Breed Carbon.
The new carbon version further improves on the already solid Breed line, and prioritizes weight and performance. The Breed is compatible with both 650b and 700c wheel sizes but comes standard with 700c hoops. The Breed uses a T47 bottom bracket that 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.
The Breed Carbon starts at $3549 for a complete Shimano GRX 600 build. The Sram Force build with Zipp wheels will set you back $7549.
