Product Details

The Fuji Men's SL 2.3 Performance Road Bike was born out of the quest to create one of the lightest bikes in the world by building off Fuji's grand tour-winning design and introducing technology that shattered expectations of what's possible. At a staggering frame weight of just 695 grams, the SL is 19% lighter than any bike Fuji has ever produced and is flat-out one of the lightest bikes in the world. Not only is the SL significantly lighter, it's significantly stiffer: 9% stiffer in the head tube, 11% stiffer in the bottom bracket, and 18% stiffer in the fork (than the Altamira) for maximum efficiency and superior handling. Intelligently designed to ensure optimal ride quality for every cyclist, the SL features two fork offsets, unique tube diameters and layups per frame size, super-thin seat stays, a chain watcher, and a chain stay protector. The latest evolution of the road lineup uses some of the most successful technologies - High Compaction and RIB Technology in new, unique ways, while utilizing brand-new innovations such as an octagonal downtube constructed of ultra-high-strength carbon, injection-molded cable stops, and a frame with only four bonded joints. The SL was cleverly and skillfully engineered to ensure the lightest, stiffest frame possible a machine WORTH THE WEIGHT.


High Compaction Molding: The cornerstone of the SL's unrivaled strength-to-weight ratio is our High Compaction Molding [HC] Bonded Frame Joints: While the Altamira features eight bonded joints, the SL uses only four; the more bonding joints you eliminate, the stronger and lighter the frame becomes as redundant material is removed and you're utilizing carbon's strongest properties of continuity. The SL's seatstays and chainstays are molded into just two, hollowed pieces, including the dropouts shaving grams and increasing strength. These reductions play a big role in why the SL is a remarkable 237 grams lighter than the Altamira nearly double the weight savings most brands boast of their next generation road bike. Injection-Molded Cable Stops: The SL cuts its weight through cleverly engineered, injection-molded cable stops for a no-hassle switch from mechanical to Di2, If and when you decide to do so. Flattened Carbon Sections: A lightweight frame alone won't get you up the mountain. The frame needs to be stiff to ensure every pedal stroke and every ounce of energy is efficiently translated into propelling the bike forward. RIB Technology: The fork has a reinforcing rib, a patented technology from Fuji's carbon manufacturer called Reinforced I-Beam or RIB technology that runs the length of the fork blades, amplifying stiffness for razor-sharp steering precision. PF30: The frame uses a PF30 bottom bracket, which further improves power transfer by allowing for the use of larger diameter, lighter, and stiffer alloy axles. Unique Layups and Tube Diameters: Each frame size uses unique carbon layups and tube diameters, as a 46cm rider does not require the same stiffness a 61cm rider needs. Super-Thin Seatstays: Inspired by the Altamira, the SL uses oval-shaped, super-thin seatstays that increase ride comfort through controlled flex over rougher terrain absorbing the maximum amount of road vibration and supplying greater compliance.
