Fuji Silhouette 1.3 Disc Flat Bar Women's Road Bike - 2018
The Fuji Silhouette 1.3 Disc Flat Bar Women's Road Bike is your ticket to an extremely comfortable and efficient ride, no matter your destination. It was created to handle rides both big and small, features great styling, Fuji's proprietary lightweight aluminum frame, Shimano Sora 9-speed components, disc brakes for exceptional stopping power, plus a women's-specific geometry.
The Silhouette's top tube is compact and for very good reasons. While benefits of a compact frame are many, there are a few key bonuses, like the shorter distance to the handlebar when seated, which alleviates neck, back and wrist strain, while increasing your ability to handle the bike with confidence. The shorter seat tube means greater standover height, so when you pull up to a stop sign you can easily step off the bike with plenty of safe clearance between you and the bike. Also, a shorter top tube means you'll be riding more upright. That means you'll get a greater view of the road ahead and any objects around your bike while your ride. The frame itself is made out of lightweight aluminum while the fork is carbon fiber which reduces the bike's weight and helps to smooth out the vibration from the road.
You'll quickly notice how easy it is to use the Shimano 9-speed Rapid Fire shifters. Simply push or click them and the drivetrain responds instantaneously. The Tektro hydraulic disc brakes engage on a set of rotors instead of the wheel rim, preserving the life of your wheels and increasing the bike's stopping power. The Silhouette is outfitted with a pair of Vera Corsa alloy wheels and comfortable, smooth-rolling Vittoria Zaffiro tires. All of these features rolled up into one bike make it easy to see why the Silhouette is so popular on weekend rides.
