The latest company to reveal their intentions to offer a disc-equipped road bike is Felt who has shared this photo of a new Z4 Disc.
They haven’t yet announced any details about it other than sharing this photo on Instagram. Felt plan to do just that at Eurobike, the biggest bicycle show anywhere in the world held in Germany at the end of the month. We’ll be there of course and we expect disc road bikes to very much be the theme of the show.
We can’t tell you much about this new Z4 Disc other than that it’s coming soon. Looking at the current Z4 and comparing it to the photos of this Z4 Disc, the frame does carry many similarities, apart from the obvious exception of the disc brake addition.
The bike in the photo looks to be built with a SRAM groupset with hydraulic disc brakes and the new Mavic Aksium Disc wheels.
