2017 Fuji Roubaix 1.1
Improving on perfection isn’t easy, but Fuji engineers have again improved upon one of Fuji's most beloved and longest-running models — the Roubaix. For nearly three decades the alloy Roubaix has excelled as an attainable and capable race bike. With significant weight savings in recent years and continued affordability, the newest iteration is no exception. This is the Roubaix reborn. A ground-up redesign of the Roubaix frame has netted a 100g reduction in frame weight. The 2017 Roubaix raw frame weighs in at a scant 1100g, putting it in an elite class of superlight aluminum race bikes. Svelte as it is, the Roubaix doesn’t sacrifice strength or stiffness. In fact, the stiffness of the frame was increased while reducing the weight. The result is a fast and light Roubaix. This 2017 Roubaix is setting the benchmark for what an aluminum race bike should be.
