Compulsion Series

Equally capable of tackling a sanctioned gravity event or an allday, all-mountain epic, Compulsion is Felt’s do-it-all trail machine.
With patented Equilink™ suspension and 6” (Adjustable 150mm or 160mm) of fully active travel, the Compulsion is the pinnacle of all-mountain performance.
Get up the hill faster and devour the most technical descents with greater ease. For 2013, the Compulsion series features a full carbon fiber frame that yields a bike that is lighter, stronger, and stiffer than ever before. The weight of every model was reduced for more agile performance on the trail, and the models feature head angles that are at 67.5 degrees for improved handling in aggressive, technical terrain. In addition, the stiffness and strength of every Compulsion frame is bolstered by the use of well-engineered links and hardware, perfect pivot placement, and tweaked tube shapes. Cartridge bearings ensure smooth travel, and the pivot axles come with a custom thru-shaft for improved durability and strength.
So how did we make the Compulsion as capable on the climbs as it is the descents? Easy. Felt’s patented Equilink™ suspension system completely equalizes all negative influences from pedaling and braking. This eliminates the need for a “clever” shock with lots of platform or compression damping to imitate true efficiency. With Equilink™, the Compulsion produces such efficient and wcompliant pedaling you will feel like you are riding a 3” travel bike. That is, until you crest the hill, start your descent and absorb that first big hit. 
And that is the Compulsion.s secret: the pedaling efficiency of a true trail bike, combined with 6” of adjustable trail smashing travel.
