Fuji SL 1.1 Road Bike - 2018
Since its inception, Fuji's SL line of road bikes has pushed the boundaries of lightweight technology. For 2018, the SL 1.1, in true Fuji fashion, takes advantage of SRAM's wireless electronic shifting as a testament to how far cycling technology has come.
The SL 1.1 is built around a C15 ultra high-modulus carbon frame with Fuji's own High Compaction molding technology. This allows the SL to maintain the kind of stiffness competitive riders expect from performance road bikes while simultaneously shedding grams. In addition to efficiently transferring power and weighing next to nothing, the SL 1.1 frame retains all of carbon's road-smoothing characteristics, increasing the SL 1.1's versatility for longer endurance rides.
SRAM Red eTap - groundbreaking in its wireless electronic gear changing technology - offers rapid, precision shifting across the SL 1.1's 11-speed drivetrain. The SRAM Red 22 carbon crankset provides a stiff, lightweight pedaling platform, while the midcompact 52/36 chainrings are ready to tackle the flats and the climbs with equal aplomb. The SRAM Red eTap derailleurs, also part of the group's wireless electronic shifting technology, shift across the cassette and chainrings with a near-telepathic quality, helping you focus on enjoying the ride.
The Oval Concepts 928 carbon wheelset offers a lightweight, fast-rolling experience, and the rest of the Oval Concepts finishing package maximizes value without sacrificing performance. Vittoria Open Corsa 700x25c tires offer the tiniest bit of extra cushion over their 23mm counterparts, but rolling resistance remains effectively the same.
When a superlight frame is paired with SRAM Red eTap shifting, the entire world is at your feet. Climb high and descend with confidence with the Fuji SL 1.1.
