Fuji Bicycles Altamira CX 1.1 Carbon Cyclocross Frameset


With an eye on competition, the Fuji Altamira CX 1.1 Carbon Cyclocross Frameset is engineered to be an uncompromising speed machine, yet it's more than tough enough for any course or trail you're ready to tackle. In fact, with its 38mm tire clearance, some of Fuji's employees even confess to using this uber-light 'cross frame for light mountain biking. It's that strong and that versatile, yet its heart beats for cyclocross.
Fuji takes 'cross seriously, and its top-shelf Altamira 1.1 frame here reflects that. The company uses its ultra-high-modulus C10 carbon fiber dropouts " the same used in their pro-tour-winning Altamira and SST road bikes " for the entire layup, from headtube to rear dropouts. Tuned for compliance and strength, it results in an especially rugged platform that feels far more solid and confident than most carbon 'cross frames that are just trying to shave grams. Yet the CX 1.1 is still extremely light. It's the best of both worlds and reflects Fuji's obsession with " and recent success in " the world of cyclocross competition.
This is also illustrated in other details. The tapered head tube grants superb steering precision and lateral stiffness, in part thanks to the fork's full-carbon construction. The frame will accept 160mm front/140mm rear disc-brakes only, a nod to its competitive focus. Take a gander at the geo chart and you'll see some pretty aggressive numbers, notably the head tube and seat tube angles. They're almost road-bike worthy, and they bestow the CX 1.1 with an especially racy and responsive feel that hardcore 'crossers will love. Yes, Fuji makes its alloy Cross frameset for riders who want all-road readiness without the 1.1's sharpness, but for athletic aspirations, the Altamira CX 1.1 is where it's at.
The Fuji Altamira CX 1.1 Carbon Cyclocross Frameset comes in five sizes, from 52cm to 61cm, and in the color Red only.
