Fuji Gran Fondo 2.1 Disc Road Bike. Gran Fondos, a road race tradition imported from Europe, are long timed rides that are all the rage in the cycling world. Whether they're for charity or a chance to test your mettle on a century ride, there's something special about a riding fondo that can't be beat. There's something special about the Fuji Gran Fondo 2.1 Disc that can't be beat either. The Gran Fondo frame is made from Fuji's proprietary C5 high modulus carbon blend. The new Gran Fondo Disc frames also feature Fuji's revolutionary VRTec frame design. In a nutshell, VRTec inserts a natural vibration dampening material into the carbon layup in key areas to improve rider comfort without impacting performance. The C5 frame is further refined with a Praxis conversion bottom bracket, which results in a large platform for power transfer and gives a stiffer, less flexy ride. You'll appreciate that as you pile on the miles. What really makes this bike stand out is the Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed drive train. The all-new 11-speed Ultegra front derailleur features a long lever arm and a rear derailleur that has been reengineered for cleaner shifting. Best of all, the Gran Fondo 2.1 Disc features Shimano R-805 Hydraulic disc brakes. Oval Concepts 327 alloy clincher wheels give you a speed advantage without making you vulnerable to cross winds or sacrificing comfort. They' re outfitted with Vittoria Zaffiro Pro tires in a wider 25c profile.
