The Fuji Transonic frame has been designed to reduce its coefficient of drag, in other words to optimize aerodynamics to help you save energy over time and distance. Fuji's engineers spent thousands of hours wind-tunnel testing the Transonic frame. The result is a synergistic energy saving advantage. The frame uses a wide cross-section tube shape made from C5 high modulus carbon fiber that cuts through the wind but also increases stiffness that helps enhance your control of the bike at speed. There's an aerodynamically contoured head tube-fork-downtube junction, seatstays are sculpted around the rear brake, there's a wheel-hugging seat tube, and that aero seat post uses an integrated seat clamp. All of these features, all of these details, add up to creat a frame that offers you greater riding efficiency and supreme comfort for long distance rides. .
The Performance Limited Edition of the Transonic 2.5 is equipped with Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed components. Shimano Ultegra contols feature an ergonomic hood and lever design that draws inspiration directly from Shimano's flagship component groups. The result is controls so comfortable to shift, it almost feels intuitive. This latest version of Ultegra also has a fundamental redesign of the front derailleur, with a longer lever arm for more effective and precise front shifts. The rear derailleur has also been redesigned to be lighter and more responsive, making shifting across the entire cassette easy and crisper, with virtually no hesitation. The Transonic 2.5 LE also features a mid-compact 52/36 Oval crankset and a wide-range Shimano 11/28 cassette, a gearing spread that works for challenging climbs or white hot hammering on the flats.
Oval Concepts hardware completes the build, with aluminum stem and handlebars, and a pair of Oval Concepts 327 clinchers that are perfect for training, racing, or gran fondos. You've made the choice to go aero, the next choice is easy: the Fuji Transonic 2.5 LE.
