Fuji Gran Fondo 2.3 Disc Road Bike - 2018
For the sportive rider who wants it all, the Fuji Gran Fondo 2.3 Disc road bike promises a perfect 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 superbly reliable Shimano 105 11-speed components, a C5 high-modulus carbon frame, and TRP HY/RD hydraulic disc brakes, this bicycle is ready to go long.
The Gran Fondo 2.3 Disc's frame is ready for your biggest rides. Its high modulus carbon fiber frame and carbon monocoque fork feature VRTech, a revolutionary technology that incorporates vibration dampening material into key areas to improve comfort during long days in the saddle, without impacting the bike's performance. Endurance geometry pairs a compact riding position with a taller head tube for maximum comfort, and the 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.
Shimano's workhorse 105 11-speed components offer a balance of durability and performance. The Oval Concepts alloy crankset with 50/34T compact chainrings combined with the Shimano 105 11-32T cassette deliver a wide range of gear options that are perfect for the endurance rider who loves long climbs and even longer days on the bike, providing everything you need to get up and over the most challenging terrain. The Tektro HY/RD hydraulic disc brakes allow a level of modulation impossible with mechanic discs. And 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 Vera Corsa alloy wheels plus Oval Concepts handlebar, stem, seatpost, and saddle. The Gran Fondo rolls on plush 700x30 Vittoria Zaffiro Pro tires that are ideal for 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 price tag, the Fuji Gran Fondo 2.3 Disc is the perfect fit.
