Felt RXC XC Hardtail

4.67/5 (3 Reviews)
MSRP : $1099.00


Product Description

You may be just getting started in cross-country or X-Terra racing, and you’re looking for a bike that is built upon a rock-solid design platform. Anyone will tell you that frame is the heart and soul of any bike, so it’s gotta be spot-on. By using the exact same superlight Aluminum/Carbon 1375 gram frameset as the more-expensive RXC Pro, the RXC has you covered. It’s built up with a XT/LX/Deore 27-speed component mix, and features a high-performance Manitou Axle Elite fork w/lockout. After sizing up the competition, you’ll find the RXC is peerless.

Strengths:    Superlight frame, good components. This bike climbs like a rocket. I shopped around for two weeks before making up my mind. The bike shop cut me a deal on an 06 model. I love the fork lockout I've been out of biking for three years and I'm very picky about what I buy.

Weaknesses:    None! If you can find a deal on this bike like I did buy it.

Bottom Line:   
The only thing I'll change on this bike is upgrade the trigger shifters. If you want a race bike at a great price buy it.

Strengths:    superlight frame that is solid and responsive. great component set up for the money. Love the manitou fork with lockout!

Weaknesses:    none as of yet

Bottom Line:   
After researching a bunch of cross country bikes I narrowed my results down to the felt rxc. The bike shop was able to get me an 05 model from the factory for cheaper than the 06. with the money I saved I put on a few higher end parts on it. This bike takes off! it feels alot less than 25 pounds. I have only had it for less than three months and already I am acheving considerably faster times at my favorite trail. You cant get a better bike for this price period. Any rider looking to step up from the weekend warrior status entry level competion should consider this bike.

My decision just got tougher -- Superlight29 RXC or Tallboy2 RXC aluminum?

I am in the market for a first FS and 29, and have tested a bunch. I really like the 29 (talking about riding stairs UP!) but have some standover clearance issues on some models (e.g. Spearfish, Pivot 429) with my own vertically-challenged geometry 5'6. I also like a longer toptube, stretched out po ... Read More »

My 1st FS 29er: Santa Cruz Superlight rXC 29.

I've only been riding 29" wheels for about a year and a half. I picked up a Redline D440 and upgraded the heck out of it. I'm a fan of bikes that are either fully rigid, or fully suspended. I don't like 'hardtails', just a personal preference. Recently I got bit by the 29er full suspension bug after ... Read More »

Tallboy RXC for trails?

I'm new to the Santa Cruz bike line and was curious if there were any real drawbacks to using a Tallboy with the 120mm fork for a mostly trail bike? No real big drops (4 feet at best) and every thing else is a pretty good transition jump. Demoed a carbon that was the shop owners personal ride and i ... Read More »
