With the Supreme line, Fuji chose not to reinvent the wheel. Fuji has met some of the most typical needs of women in the cycling world by focusing on a women's-specific saddle and a slightly taller headtube. However, they haven't changed all of the things that make their bikes great. The Supreme 1.1 is a much-loved alternative to Fuji's Supreme Elite, an identical bicycle with Shimano's new Ultegra Di2. The 1.1 sticks to the tried and true with an 11-speed Shimano Ultegra groupset, a C5 high-modulus carbon frame, and a reliable Oval Concepts finishing package.
The Fuji Supreme 1.1 frame strikes a balance between aerodynamics, stiffness, and weight savings, offering a well-rounded platform for a variety of riding scenarios. A full-carbon fork kills road buzz and saves weight over aluminum-carbon hybrids. An integrated headtube with a 1 ½" lower smooths out an aerodynamic profile, while oversized chainstays and a sizable PIIS86 bottom bracket shell help facilitate power transfer. When you step on the Supreme's pedals, it jumps forward immediately and enthusiastically.
Shimano's Ultegra groupset is one of the company's premium mechanical offerings. "Ultegra" is a catchy mashup of "ultimate integrity," and the new electric version lives up to the group's storied history. With a mid-compact 52x36 Ultegra crank and an 11-28 cassette, you'll have the gears to tackle the steep stuff without sacrificing any speed in the sprint. Ultegra's shifting is more accurate and reliable than it has been at any point in the group's two-decade-long history. While it weighs slightly more than Shimano's ultra-premium Dura Ace groupset, the accuracy and rapidity of shifting is still professional quality. Unlike some of Fuji's entry-level models, the Supreme Elite's groupset extends all the way to the brakes, where the Ultegra brakeset provides powerful, reliable stopping power.
Oval Concepts provides the bike's cockpit, from the racing-oriented Oval Concepts 527 wheelset with Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick tires to the women's-specific Oval Concepts 700 saddle. The bicycle's seatpost, stem, and handlebar also come from Oval Concepts, rounding out a performance-focused package with reliable, value-laden parts. Whether you're coming to the line in your first race or ready to invest in going further, faster, and higher than ever before, the Fuji Supreme 1.1 is equipped to help you make the most of your hard work.
