Many riders prefer all of the bells and whistles of a top-shelf race bike, but would rather not endure the aerodynamic body position that comes with it. The Fuji Gran Fondo 2.2 Disc road bike can improve your top speed, acceleration, and comfort over the long haul, and, thanks to disc brakes, supply plenty of stopping power when required.
Using a longer head tube than a traditional race bike, about 10mm on a 55cm frame, the Gran Fondo creates a slightly more upright rider position in order to stave off upper body fatigue on longer rides. The Gran Fondo frame is made from a high modulus carbon blend. The larger press fit design also allows Fuji to move the frame material around, thinning out the seat stays and strengthening the chain stays, which puts the carbon where it matters to you most. The tapered head tube stiffens the front end of the bike for better power transmission.
The Shimano Ultegra drivetrain with a compact Shimano crank offers a tremendous gear selection, no matter the grade of the road. The Gran Fondo 2.2 LE can handle just about any ascent or descent on an epic ride. However, we all know that a wheel set can make or break any ride, no matter its length. The low spoke count Oval Concepts 327 Disc wheels spin up fast and furious, and thanks to the Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick tires, they deliver maximum acceleration in and out of every corner. Add in the durable finish and performance of an Oval Concepts handlebar, stem, seat post and saddle, and you have a Gran Fondo capable of leading the way to any weekend adventure.
