The Fuji Transonic 1.3 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 1.3 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 crosswind, and can compromise your control of the bike. To solve this problem, Fuji uses a wide cross-section tube shape made from C10 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 seatpost with an integrated seat clamp produces cleaner airflow, plus a roughened surface on the front of the seatpost ensures the post doesn't slip. The seat tube is also contoured around the rear wheel to minimize drag.

But having a super-aero frame only gets you so far. You need great components to round out the build. The Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 groupset is the choice of professional cyclists and for good reason. This Dura-Ace mechanical group is the epitome of lightweight, masterfully-engineered components that perform flawlessly under duress. The precision gear changes are lightning quick, the crankset is super-stiff, and the direct mount brakes perform superbly.

Rounding out the package is a bevy of carbon including Oval Concepts R910 carbon bars, an aerodynamic Transonic carbon seatpost, and a pair of lightweight Oval Concepts 950 clincher wheels wrapped up in Vittoria Rubino Pro tires.
  • Carbon fiber frame features wide cross-section tube shapes for aerodynamic drag reduction and increased rigidity
  • Carbon monocoque fork with tapered steerer for responsive handling
