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 Deore 38/24 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, minimizing the torsional forces of the rear wheel while braking. Finally, a 142 x 12mm rear thru axle securely joins the hub to the frame, strengthening lateral stiffness in the rear triangle for improved pedaling efficiency.
The SLM 2.5 is built up with a myriad number of high-quality parts and components. A Shimano Deore 10-speed drivetrain and Rock Shox Recon Gold fork are perfect for nearly any XC course. A 38/24-tooth Shimano Deore crank is matched to an 11/36 Shimano 10-speed cassette to conquer brutal climbs and harrowing descents alike. Finally, a stout set of Oval Concepts 200 wheels with Schwalbe Rocket Ron Performance tires make short work of tight and twisty singletrack.
