The Fuji Transonic 2.7 road bike is the result of years of aerodynamic research and engineering. Fuji was one of the first companies to go "aero" with their beloved SST model. They've evolved the concept further, taking lessons learned from the development of their other super bikes, the Norcom Straight and Track Elite, plus input from their pro riders on the Caja-Rural pro team, who have ridden the bike to victory after victory.

The 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.

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 produces cleaner airflow, plus a roughened surface on the front of the seat post ensures the post doesn't slip. The seat tube is also contoured around the rear wheel to minimize drag.

Shifting duties are handled by Shimano's 105 5800 2x11-speed components that deliver all the best features of Shimano's higher level 11-speed groups, but at a fraction of the price, making it friendlier to the budget-minded cyclist. With superb ergonomics and precision gear changes, Shimano has made sure that the 105 5800 group is more than enough to race, ride, and get the most out of your bike.
