Gran Fondos have become the gold standard for any enthusiast road rider who relishes challenging themselves, for defining a new personal best. To do that, you need a bike like the Fuji Gran Fondo Classico 1.1. It offers the ideal blend of performance enhancing comfort with pure, raw capability, the result of a build that includes first-rate Shimano and Oval Concepts components, and Fuji's high modulus carbon fiber frames.</p> <p>The Classico 1.1 frame is made from Fuji's proprietary C5 high modulus carbon blend, with a taller head tube and longer wheel base. This puts you in a slightly more upright position that helps relieve upper body fatigue on those longer rides, taking stress off your back, shoulder and hands. The frame's longer wheelbase provides a blend of stability and agile, yet predictable, handling.</p> <p>The C5 high modulus frame has a stiff blend of fibers, which results in less flex and better transmission of your power, the frame is further refined with an Oval Concepts press-fit bottom bracket and tapered head tube. An oversized bottom bracket creates more surface area to attach the down and seat tubes, thereby creating a very stiff pedaling area. The larger press-fit design also allows Fuji to move the frame material around, thinning out the seat stays and strengthening the chain stays, which puts the carbon where it matters to you most. The tapered head tube stiffens the front end of the bike for better power transmission.</p> <p>Shimano Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain and an Oval Concepts 520 mid-compact crankset combined with an 11/28 cassette is an ideal spread of gears to match cadence and gear for the kinds of tests Gran Fondos present. You'll always have a gear at your command that can deliver a comfortable cadence no matter the grade. These components also help keep the bike's overall weight down, which adds up when you're pushing yourself for a personal best.</p> <p>The VeraCorsa DPM27 clincher wheels wrapped with Vittoria Zaffiro, 700 x 25, 26tpi tires offer an ideal blend of acceleration and comfort when you're going long. The Gran Fondo Classico 1.1 is finished with Oval 300 series handlebar, seatpost and saddle, creating a bike you'll relish riding no matter how long the ride.</p>
