Fuji upped their aero game this year with the introduction of the Transonic. Rather than just adding disc brakes to their old platform, the new bike was built from the ground up. We previewed the details early in 2019, but now we’ve got the full download straight from the source.
Fuji Transonic carbon aero road bike
Fuji has been in the aero game for quite some time, with a variety of triathlon, time trial, and aero road products. We got a sneak peak of all the new goodies from Fuji at the Sea Otter Classic last year, including a new aero road platform, called the Transonic. It’s an entirely new bike, out to tackle everything from stage races to crits – or anything where aero performance is a priority.
The frame uses truncated Kamm-tail shaping to reduce drag at a variety of wind angles. Fuji claims optimized performance even with multiple water bottles mounted.
All models use an aero drop bar and stem, including a special flat top cap and aero headset cover. An integrated stem computer mount is included.
While the initial debut only showed disc brake models, Fuji now offers rim brake options at lower price points.
Though Fuji talks about aerodynamic performance for the Transonic, no specific claims have been made as of yet.
Seven sizes are offered for a wide range of fit.
