Fuji Transonic Sl Road Bike Frame – 2015
Fuji Transonic SL Road Bike Frame – 2015. Aerodynamic and superlight. This is the bike that does it all. New for the 2015 season Fuji is unleashing a revolution in speed. The all-new Fuji Transonic SL 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 Net-App Endura pro team. The Fuji Transonic SL 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. 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. 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. If you’re looking for a bike that truly delivers the ultimate in performance in any terrain, from flatland sprints to high mountain passes, the Fuji Transonic is the bike for you.
