Fuji Gran Fondo 2.3 Disc Road Bike - 2017
For the sportive rider who wants it all, the Fuji Gran Fondo 2.3 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 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 2.3 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. Shimano's RS-505 hydraulic disc brakes provide a logical complement to the 105 drivetrain, allowing a level of modulation impossible with mechanic discs. Unlike rim brakes, hydraulic discs brake consistently in all weather conditions, a welcome relief on technical descents or for riders who refuse to let bad weather interrupt their training schedule.
Fuji rounds out the Gran Fondo 2.3 Disc with Oval Concepts wheels and cockpit.. The Gran Fondo rolls on Oval Concepts 327 Disc wheels wrapped in 28mm Vittoria Rubino Pro Slicks. The slightly larger tire size is increasingly popular among both pros and amateurs, smoothing out harsh road surfaces without sacrificing speed. For the rider who wants the all-terrain, all-weather, all-ride performance of Fuji's top of the line models without the top of the line pricetag, the Fuji Gran Fondo 2.3 Disc is the perfect fit.
