Fuji Gran Fondo 2.5 Disc Road Bike - 2017
For the sportive rider who wants it all, the Fuji Gran Fondo 2.5 promises a solution. Fuji's Gran Fondo line takes plentiful cues from its racing cousins while adopting a geometry more conducive to long days in the saddle. With a premium Shimano 105 groupset, a C5 high-modulus carbon frame, and Shimano's RS-505 hydraulic disc brakes, this bicycle is ready to go long.
The Gran Fondo 2.5 Disc's frame is ready for the big rides. The high-modulus carbon dampens road buzz, helping you put in the long days and leaving you refreshed to ride again tomorrow. Endurance geometry pairs a compact riding position with a taller-than-usual headtube for maximum comfort, and a full carbon fork adds to an already smooth ride. Oversized chainstays and a PF30 bottom bracket increase power transfer, making every watt count, and the light, stiff frame is ready to sprint for your city limit sprint. Hidden fender eyelets increase the bike's versatility without sacrificing aesthetics or aerodynamics.
The Fuji Gran Fondo's 11-speed 105 groupset, which pairs a compact crank (50x34) with an 11-28T cassette,offers a balance of durability and performance. The wide gearing is perfect for the endurance rider who loves long climbs and even longer days, providing you with everything you need to get up and over the most challenging terrain. TRP Spyre disc brakes provide a logical complement to the 105 drivetrain, providing all-weather stopping power without the maintenance of hydraulic brakes.
Fuji rounds out the Gran Fondo 2.5 Disc with an Oval Concepts cockpit and Vera Corsa DPD22 wheels. As Fuji's house brand, Oval provides sportive riders with maximum bang for the buck, and the Vera Corsa wheelset provides durability and value in excess. Where the rubber meets the road, you'll finding Vittoria Zaffiro tires in their 28mm iteration, a width that is seeing increasing use among pros and amateurs alike. The slightly wider tire takes the sting out of rough roads, opens up gravel-grinding possibilities, and is only slightly heavier than its thinner counterparts. Versatile and practical, it is a perfect fit for Fuji's Gran Fondo 2.5 Disc, a bike for all seasons.
