Modern cross-country riding is a mix of flat-out speed and technical sections. The purpose-built bikes for today's XC rider have evolved. More stable front-ends, shorter stems, and steeper seat angles deliver a more sure-footed ride and the dynamics to increase speed and handling prowess uphill and on descents. Our line-up features superlight hard-tails and full-suspension rigs that'll crush the competition and get you to the finish line faster than ever before.
The Dispatch 9 features many of the same technologies developed for Felt’s high-performance, carbon Doctrine Series. These include a contemporary hardtail design and a 29-inch wheel platform. This gives the Dispatch 9 exceptional rollover capabilities and handling characteristics. The Dispatch 9 includes a 6061 aluminum frame for maximum durability, as well as a suspension fork that provides front-end damping to further enhance the bike’s already impressive ride quality.
