The Fuji Rakan is a medium-travel 29er ready to ride all day and all night long. Built using an A6-SL aluminum frame, the Rakan features Fuji's MLink suspension design. This design puts the rear pivot at an ideal middle of the ground position. No need to sacrifice tuning for ideal geometry, the MLink suspension puts out 120mm of smooth travel while still remaining snappy and responsive when the watts hits the pedals.
Suspension duty for the Rakan is handled beautifully by a Rock Shox Reba RL Solo Air and a Monarch RT3, giving you fork lockout on the handlebars and ample tuning opportunities. 120mm of travel for both the front and rear wheel means you never want for suspension but also don't feel weighed down by it. This same theory applies to the DT Swiss X1900 wheelset. Strength for miles, but weight for quick acceleration and superior roll-over.
The component story on this bike is simple: manufacturers design parts to work together best with their respective counterparts. Shimano's venerable XT 2x11 drivetrain give you every gear you could ever want while the matching XT hydraulic disc brakes provide control with the slightest squeeze of the levers. Oval Concepts rounds out the cockpit supplying the handlebars, stem, lock-on grips, saddle, and seatpost.
Whether you are training up for your local 100 miler or 24 hour race, get into bikepacking, or just head out onto your local trails, the Fuji Rakan 29r is ready to go there with you. Mating the latest high-end components with cutting edge designs and manufacturing, the Rakan will be the only bike you need for years to come!
