The evolution of race geometry has turned a corner with the Fuji Transonic Elite frame. In the quest to create a more aerodynamic road bike, designers were forced to sacrifice a level of stiffness and comfort in order to meet those ends. It used to be you couldn't have both - but in this world, now you can. Designed using Computational Fluid Dynamics, along with years of wind tunnel testing, the engineers at Fuji came up with a design so revolutionary, you'll have to ride it to believe it.
Constructed with Fuji's ultra high-modulus C10 carbon fiber, the Transonic is designed with wider cross-sectional tubes and gradual transitions in the tube walls to allow for greater stiffness and rigidity. The headtube angle and fork offset were carefully chosen to ensure stable steering and confidence-inspiring handling. Lateral stiffness is created through asymmetrical Energy Transfer Chainstays, making the Transonic one of the stiffest, most aerodynamic frames on the market today.
The Transonic's carbon monocoque fork allows for fast, responsive handling and a Press-Fit 30 bottom bracket is added for larger diameter, lighter, and stiffer alloy crank axles. Both frame and fork are designed to accept direct-mount front and rear brakes, providing better frame integration for improved aerodynamics and increased brake stiffness and control, as well as the added benefit of additional room for 28mm tires. Internal cable routing is included for mechanical and Di2 systems as well as an option for a di2 battery-compatible seatpost. Finally, an integrated chain watcher ensures smooth shifts without the risk of dropping the chain to the inside of the crank. If fast and dependable is what you're looking for, the Fuji Transonic is the bike you need.
