Fuji Roubaix Elite Road Bike - 2017. Since carbon has dominated the road bike scene over the past decade, we never thought we'd see aluminum return to greatness. Boy, were we wrong. The 2017 Fuji Roubaix Elite delivers unparalleled performance with modern race bike weight savings, so get ready to rediscover the beauty of aluminum. The Fuji Roubaix is designed with more aggressive race geometry to improve critical aerodynamics for maximum speed, and meet the end goal of elevating your performance. Fuji uses their proprietary aluminum tubes, which are butted, to increase the frame's durability and maximize rider energy output through enhanced stiffness. A Press-Fit BB86 bottom bracket shell provides more surface area to attach a larger down tube and chain stays for better stability and rigidity under load. The internal bearing design is also lighter than traditional external cups as well. The shorter head tube of the Roubaix lowers the handlebar position and consequently puts you in a more aerodynamic riding position. Additionally, the head tube is tapered to improve front-end handling and increase strength under rider torque. Finally, the Roubaix frame is designed with shorter chainstays, which results in a shorter wheelbase for precise handling at a moment's notice, and a full carbon fork (carbon steerer too) to smooth out the road ahead. The Roubaix Elite has a mix of great components. It features a SRAM Force 22-speed drivetrain parts and a Quark Prime carbon power-ready crankset. A forgiving Force 11/28 cassette allows you to handle grades of all kinds without sacrificing big gears for power. Oval 724 aluminum wheels with Vittoria Rubino Pro tires deliver massive amounts of speed to every ride. Luscious suede tape and road tuned saddle make every ride enjoyable and sturdy alloy bars, stem and seatpost keep you confident and in control.
