Fuji Altamira CX 1.1 Cyclocross Bike - 2018
$3,999.99 MSRP $4,399.99
If you're looking for a professional-grade, race-ready out-of-the-box cyclocross bike, the Fuji Altamira CX 1.1 is the one to choose. The carbon soul of this bike is a C-10 ultra-high carbon fiber frame with an integrated head tube and oversize chain stays for the stiffness you need to tackle grueling cyclocross courses. C-10 carbon is strong enough that shapers can get away with using less of it in parts of the frame and more where you need it, shaving off ounces while giving you a frame that can take high wattage mashing when you need it. Integrated cable routing keeps things clean and swift and keeps the cables out of the elements. They've even flattened the top tube for easier carrying, which could mean seconds on every lap, which could mean a podium for you. Add this frame to the FC-330 full carbon monocoque fork, stiff enough for superb handling, and you've got arguably the most race-ready cyclocross platform in the industry.
Fuji didn't rest on their frameset, however. They've included the justly lauded SRAM Force 1 11-speed drivetrain. It features a single 42T chainring, which again saves you weight, and the 11-speed cassette gives you all the versatility you need for steep inclines and quick acceleration--just what you need to leave your rivals behind you. The SRAM Force 1 rear derailleur has lightning-speed and reliable shifting and you don't have to worry about the dreaded chain drop. The top-of-the line Oval cockpit, with a carbon fiber handlebar paired with a super-light alloy stem, will keep you in an aggressive riding position, ready to dismount or mount at a moment's notice while the beefy, tapered head tube can handle the most arduous steering demands.
Where the rubber meets the race course you'll appreciate the Oval 935 Disc carbon tubular wheels and Challenge Baby Limus Team Edition tubular tires. Together, you've got the recipe for aggressive riding in a variety of conditions - from soft pack to sticky mud - so you can leave the competition behind. And with SRAM Force 1 hydraulic disc brakes, you'll be able to stop on a dime in all types of weather for the ultimate in control and nimble handling. The Fuji Altamira CX 1.1 is designed for the race-ready rider who wants a payoff for all the hard work that goes into the most demanding cycling discipline out there.
