The Fuji Sportif 1.1 Disc is the perfect bike for the rider who wants to go far fast. Pairing endurance road geometry with an accurate Shimano 105 drivetrain, the Sportif 1.1 will keep you comfortable for mile after mile. Hydraulic disc brakes provide even, reliable braking in all conditions, and an Oval Concepts cockpit keeps the ride light and stiff.
At the heart of the Sportif 1.1 is Fuji's A2-SL alloy frame, a lightweight frame that takes cues from Fuji's SL line of racing bicycles. With tapered seatstays and chainstays, the A2-SL offers a compliant ride, even on trying surfaces. The FC-440 full carbon monocoque fork also saves weight while contributing to the Sportif's silky smooth ride. The perfect balance of comfort and performance, the Sportif's frame is ready to put down mile after mile.
The Sportif 1.1 comes with Shimano's 11-speed 105 groupset, which provides an excellent mixture of efficiency and affordability. Benefiting from many of the same innovation's as Shimano's premium Dura-Ace groupset, Shimano 105 shifts quickly and accurately. While there is a slight weight penalty over some of its more expensive siblings, Shimano 105 offers durability and performance in spades. With compact chainrings paired with an 11-32 Shimano 105 cassette, this drivetrain allows you to tackle climbs at your own pace. Whether you're just starting out or deliberately build thousands of feet of climbing into your rides, Shimano 105's wide range and precision shifting make every ride a great ride.
Shimano's RS-505 hydraulic disc brakes offer a level of braking impossible for rim brakes. While conventional braking systems suffer from diminished performance in wet conditions, hydraulic disc brakes maintain all of their considerable braking power, regardless of the conventions. Beyond power, hydraulic discs also offer a level of modulation that is superior to their mechanical counterparts. Descend with aplomb, knowing that all-weather speed reduction is just a squeeze away.
The Sportif's Vera Helios 700x28c tires really speak to the purpose of this bicycle. The Sportif is a perfect fit for bad roads, hardpack, small gravel, and fresh pavement alike. These tires are wrapped around Oval Concepts 327 disc wheels, which spin up quickly and stay stiff in the corners. Oval Concepts finishes the Sportif with durable aluminum handlebars, seatpost, and stem. With the Sportif 1.1, Fuji acknowledges that most riders are not racers, offering a comfortable machine that doesn't skimp on quality parts and high-end technological innovation.
