While all I’ve got is a teaser shot of the ControlTaper head tube on the 2013 Felt Edict Nine LTD, I’m guessing we’ll see Felt’s first 29er full-suspension bike later this week at the 2012 Sea Otter Classic. Felt has long been one of the most recognized names in 29er’s, but have been slow to launch a full-suspension 29er.
For 2013, their late entry should be one to watch. At least the head tube looks nice! It will be carbon, it will have 29-inch wheels and it will have a tapered head tube. Other than that, I don’t know anything about travel, but I’m guessing 80-100mm travel to keep it more of a race bike. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
UPDATE: 2013 Felt Edict 29 Unveiled Today
The full reveal happened today at Sea Otter and boy does the new Edict 29er look amazing! Granted, the spec shown will likely hit $10k, but it is something to behold. Looking at the fork, it appears to be either a 100 or 120mm travel steed. I’ll update as I get more info.
