Equally capable of tackling an enduro gravity event or an all-day, all-mountain epic, Compulsion is Felt’s do-it-all trail machine. With patented Equilink™ suspension and 6” (150mm) 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.

The 2010 Compulsion series—with new hydro-formed tubes—is now lighter, stronger and stiffer. The weight of every model was reduced for more agile performance on the trail, and the new models feature head angles that are one degree slacker (now 67.5 degrees) for improved handling in aggressive, technical terrain. In addition, the stiffness and strength of every Compulsion frame has been bolstered by the use of all-new forgings, links and hardware. Cartridge bearings ensure smooth travel, and the pivot axles have been updated with a new 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 compliant 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" (150mm) of travel.
