Dirt Rag called the redesigned SLM, Fuji's premium XC carbon hardtail, "a thoroughbred in every sense of the word, from its...race-geometry carbon-fiber frame to the crème de la crème components attached thereto." The oversized tapered head tube meets the top tube and downtube in a massive junction to keep the front end stiff for precise steering control -- confidence-inspiring when cornering at high speeds. The uniquely shaped, oversized downtube amplifies torsional stiffness and maximizes power transfer. The SLM features a Shimano XT 36/26 2x10 crank that offers the optimum combination of light weight and stiffness to make every pedal rotation count. 430mm hyper-short, asymmetrical chainstays -- among the shortest in the industry -- supply superior efficiency and nimble handling, especially on tight singletrack. Chainstay-mounted rear brake caliper positions the rear brake in the ideal position between the two stays out of the way, minimi-ing the torsional forces of the rear wheel while braking. Finally, a 142 x 12mm rear thru axle se-curely joins the hub to the frame, strengthening lateral stiffness in the rear triangle for improved pedaling efficiency.
The SLM 2.1 is built up with a myriad number of beautiful parts and components. A Shimano XT 11-speed drivetrain is perfect for nearly any XC course. A 36/26-tooth Shimano XT crank is matched to a 11/40 Shimano XT 11-speed cassette to conquer brutal climbs and harrowing descents alike. Finally, a blisteringly-quick set of DT Swiss X1900 Spline wheels with Racing Ralph Evolution tires make short work of tight and twisty singletrack.
