2013 Fuji Track Elite carbon fiber aero track bike with tapered head tube

Next week, Fuji will unveil their new Track Elite bike, a carbon fiber board racer that uses something not typically found in the velodrome – a tapered headtube.

Per the teaser above, they claim it, along with internal frame and fork ribbing, makes for a monstrously stiff bike. Dropouts are kept metal to hold up to frequent wheel changes and adjustments. The frame was developed and tested in the wind tunnel, too, just to make sure all that stiffness didn’t just push more air around. Look for full coverage next week.
