Since the 1970’s, Fuji has been a mainstay brand in the US cycling scene. The American owned, Japanese brand has impressed us with their Altamira SL. The release of their well designed Transonic aero road frame and Tri / TT Norcom Straight have shown the company is forging ahead with innovation and good design on the road.
Enough about the road though, we are here to talk about their latest endeavor on the dirt. The Fuji SLM 29 1.1 aims to be a podium topping XC race bike out of the box. The bike is adorn with XTR, a claimed 1000g carbon frame, tubeless ready wheels, carbon cockpit, and a Fox 32 Float 100mm fork. It sounds like a solid recipe, but you’ll have to make the jump to find out.
