Product Description


If you want a modern cross-country bike with all-around performance at an excellent price, the Doctrine 5 is an excellent choice. The Doctrine 5 strikes a great balance of a top weight to stiffness ratio mixed with compliance. Felt kept up with the changes in cross-country by creating this speedy hardtail with a more stable front end, a shorter stem, a steeper seat angle, and a great weight to stiffness ratio. The Felt Doctrine 5 is a great entry-level bike for the rider who wants a carbon frame and all-around performance at a solid price.

The frame of the Felt Doctrine 5 is made with UHC Performance carbon fiber. This is a slightly lower grade material compared to the Doctrine 1 and 3 which saves you money. Still, it is very light and incorporates the same geometry as those more expensive models. With improvements to the weight and stiffness compared to previous iterations of this bike, you get a machine that climbs with ease and can break into a sprint with the fastest hardtails out there.

Agility and light climbing ability is to be expected in a hardtail but the improved compliance of the Doctrine is what really sets it apart from others in its class. Extra comfort can be accredited to the rear triangle of this frame. It helps mitigate the impact of small bumps while keeping the rear end down to provide the traction you need. The front end is equipped with a RockShox Recon RL fork for extra travel on technical terrain. This combines the light weight and nimble ride you expect from a hard tail with the vibration dampening ride you get from a suspension ride.

Mud or tough conditions are not a problem thank to the extra tire clearance you get on the Doctrine 5. With the option for up to 2.35-inch tires, you have a huge range of riding styles at your disposal. Internal cable routing options contribute further to weather management and convenience of this machine. This model comes with a SRAM NX shifting, lowering the price with reliable performance. If you decide to update your groupset, the frame is compatible with any modern frameset on the market. It also comes with a BB92 bottom bracket to add to straight line speed and instant acceleration. All these convenient pieces further improve an already outstanding bike.

The Felt Doctrine 5 gives you high-end cross-country performance without putting a hole in your pocket. The proven geometry of the Doctrine and a carbon frame with reliable components is all yours for a lower price. With this bike you will feel as light and agile as ever without sacrificing the comfort you need to deal with technical sections. The Doctrine 5 is here to help you crush your lap times and dominate the competition. The Felt Doctrine was made to evolve with the sport and help you evolve your riding with it.
