Fuji Transonic 2.5 Road Bike - 2015Designed to conquer Europe's toughest climbs and equipped with today's most elite technology, the Fuji Transonic 2.5 road bike is the crème de la crème of the cycling world. Draped in a luscious lime and charcoal paint treatment, the Transonic 2.5 features a Shimano Ultegra 11-speed mechanical drivetrain, low spoke count aero clincher wheels and Fuji's patented, highly lauded C5 high modulus carbon frame and FC-440 fork. All of these luxuries translate into the ultimate long distance ride in supreme comfort.
About the Frame: The Fuji Transonic frame has been design to help you cut through the wind. Fuji's engineers spent several years wind-tunnel testing and FEA-modeling the Transonic frame to achieve the right shape to help you gain an advantage on your competitors. They found that while aerofoil shapes may be aerodynamically efficient, they compromise the rigidity of the frame. They also don't perform as well in a cross-wind, and can compromise your control of the bike. To solve this problem, Fuji uses a wide cross-section tube shape made from C5 high modulus carbon fiber that cuts through the wind but increases stiffness, and increases your control of the bike at speed.
They also borrowed some of the most successful wind-cheating elements of their hyper-fast Track Elite and Norcom Straight TT models. An aerodynamically contoured head tube-fork-downtube junction blends the frame areas together to ensure smooth, uninterrupted airflow over the front of the bike and across the downtube. The seat tube-seatstay junction is sculpted to reduce turbulent air exiting the seat tube -- in the Transonic's case, contoured around the rear brake to shield it from the wind. An aero seat post with an integrated seat clamp that produces cleaner airflow, plus a roughened surface on the front of the seat post to ensure the post doesn't slip. The seat tube is also contoured around the rear wheel to minimize drag.
About the Components: The new Ultegra features newly redesigned ergonomic hood and lever shapes that draw inspiration directly from the company's superlative Di2 systems. The result is a more comfortable lever that requires less force to execute a shift, thanks to decreased cable friction and improved housing. Ultegra 6800 also features a fundamental redesign of the front derailleur, with a longer lever arm for more effective and precise front shifts. The rear derailleur has also been redesigned to be lighter and more responsive, making shifting across the entire cassette feels easy and snappy, with no chain rubbing or hesitation. The Transonic 2.5 features a mid-compact 52/36 Oval crankset and wide-ranged Shimano 105 11/28 cassette. This gearing allows you to climb and descend with equal ease. No spinning out or grinding it out.
The rest of the bike is built for top performance. Oval Concepts aluminum stem and handlebars, aerodynamic Transonic seatpost, and a pair of Oval Concepts 327 clinchers that are perfect for training, racing, or gran fondos.
