It’s more than capable of powering up steep climbs or bombing down technical descents thanks to the kit it’s carrying. A 150mm RockShox Sektor fork, strong Avid hydraulic disc brakes and the Shimano drivetrain components keep you going, no matter how rough the trail.
For 2013, the Compulsion series features a full carbon fibre frame that yields a bike that is lighter, stronger, and stiffer than ever before. Equally capable of tackling a sanctioned gravity event or an all-day, 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.
With a lightweight and perfectly balanced hydroformed 6061 aluminium frame and 150 or 160mm of adjustable Equilink suspension travel, the Compulsion 50 inspires confidence in all conditions. The 6061 alloy is light, strong and responsive and makes for a versatile trail and coupled with the array of components added to the frame, it won’t let you down. With slightly modified geometry and fully active, adjustable Equilink suspension travel, Compulsion 50 promises consistent, reliable performance in all types of terrain.
The Shimano drivetrain components deliver outstanding and high quality reliability which are essential on a bike of this stature. Superb shifting is guaranteed and is what you would expect from Shimano XT and SLX components. The Compulsion 50 also comes supplied with a Shimano XT triple chainset, giving you ample gearing to tackle the steepest of ascents and with a pair of Avid Elixir 1 hydraulic disc brakes, stopping is not a problem.
The renowned Rockshox Sektor TK forks, with 15mm thru-axle, forks will take the front end punishment and soak up all the hits you tackle and with the Rockshox Monarch rear shock, this will give you added comfort. WTB and their Speed Disc rims built on Felt hub are the choice of wheels and come fitted with Continental X-King 2.4 folding tyres.
The Compuslion 50 is an excellent choice if you prefer aluminium underneath you and wanting a trouble free ride on any trail. It will provide you with endless hours of fun and with 150 or 160mm of plush, fully active Felt Equilink rear suspension travel the Compulsion 50 can tackle the toughest of trails.

Felt is an American bicycle manufacturer based in Irvine, California. In the early 1990s the company was founded by Jim Felt who designed some of the very first triathlon bikes that propelled many of the worlds greatest athletes to Iron Man victories. High profile sponsorship has remained an intrinsic part of Felt’s strategy highlighted by their association with the Garmin Transitions professional road team and Olympic Triathletes Jan Frodeno and Emma Snowsill.
With a strong product focus Felt has gone from strength-to-strength, going from just six bike models in the USA to over 150 bike models, sold in over 30 countries. Felt have created a niche group of highly skilled and dedicated people who work together to create bicycles that consistently exceed their riders’ expectations by providing a sense of individuality, inspiration and pride in ownership.
Felt are not governed by their competitors’ measurements of success - the desire to push beyond the limits of technology never allows Felt to rest on their laurels. As their universal mission statement suggests, Felt’s reason for existing is “To design, develop, and deliver the best bicycles in the world. Period.”
