Sometimes you need to bring a gun to a knife fight, so to speak. Whether you are looking improve your competitive results, or simply enjoy the finer things in life during a group ride, the Fuji SL 1.7 road bike is a great choice. The Fuji SL 1.7 road bike is what high technology and gorgeous, featherweight design dreams are made of. Fuji's proprietary and race-proven C15 carbon frame is outfitted with Shimano Ultegra 22-speed components, Oval Concepts 724 super-light aluminum wheels, and weighs in at a claimed 15 pounds.
The Fuji SL 1.7 is an ultralight superbike with improved comfort and stiffness to create the ultimate road machine. The SL 1.5 may look outwardly similar to the Grand Tour-winning Altamira, but under the hood everything has been updated, revised, and improved. Fuji's High Compaction Molding System has been honed and perfected over the years to create the stiffest possible frame with the least amount of material. By ensuring that the carbon sheets are free of wrinkles, and the resin has been evenly applied, the engineers can make the bike stiffer and lighter, with less variation in the carbon. The C15 high modulus carbon construction is about as stiff as you would ever want a bike to be, and, when coupled with a PF30 bottom bracket and tapered headtube, will transfer just about every watt in your pedal stroke into forward motion. In the rear, Fuji kept the pencil-thin seatstays we all loved on the Altamira, adding some compliance to the frame for a smoother ride, but switched from a 31.6mm seatpost to a 27.2mm, adding in a little more forgiveness for bad roads and shedding some weight. Plus, the SL clears a 28mm tire (depending on the brand), so you can throw on some cushier rubber for the ultimate in smooth sailing comfort.
The SL 1.7 is equipped with the performance-driven Shimano Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain. A mid-compact Shimano Ultegra 52/36 crankset and Ultegra 11-28 cassette provides the perfect range to mash out a sprint, grind out a climb, or ride tempo. Oval Concepts 724 wheels with 150 TPI Vittoria Open Pro tires scorch the pavement and a set of Shimano Ultegra brakes keep you in control of every hairpin turn.
