wanted to offer a different take on their premier mid-travel trailbike - so they began with its top-line lightweight carbon Decree chassis and then pumped up its performance from its intended role as an xc/marathon racer, into the realm of all-mountain with a more capable component selection - one that we would expect to see on fancy custom builds. The suspension is all DVO, with a 150-millimeter Diamond fork and with a Topaz shock that produces 140-millimeters of wheel travel via its flex-stay "FAST" rear suspension.
The DVO suspension's green theme is carried through to the component build, with a Spank Oozy Trail stem and 760-millimeter handlebar up top. Its KS LEV dropper post has a matching anodized seal head and its Spank Oozy 27.5-inch wheels are laced to green-anodized hubs and 35-millimeter id aluminum rims. The Decree's Textreme carbon fiber chassis is finished off with a green tinted clear coat to accent its signature checkerboard layup. The Decree LE's transmission is SRAM's over-the-top Eagle 12-speed ensemble. Felt says that the Decree LE will be sold for $6,499 USD and is available in four sizes: Small, medium, large and X-Large. Actual weights were not available, but the LE should weight around 26 to 27 pounds, based upon the upper-end builds that Felt offers with the standard Decrees.
|With the Decree, you can very easily ride cross-country trails, and you can very easily ride more aggressive terrain. We wanted to fit the new Decree LE with components that are targeted a little more towards all-mountain or enduro riding. So, the Decree LE was designed specifically to take more of a beating. - Felt Product Manager Rob Pauley|
