The Fuji Track Elite is a high quality track frame designed for the most demanding riders who train and compete on track.
The Fuji Track Elite frame and fork set has been developed in A2 wind tunnels. It is one of the most rigid track frames ever made and it's been one of the first to use a conical headset. Its developers have been aware that every second, every pedal stroke and every movement of the handlebar is very important on track and that the rider cannot afford to waste even a watt of effort.
It is made from the same C10 carbon fiber used for the Tour de France, and its aerodynamic profile is perfect for cutting the wind. Even so, Fuji realized that an aerodynamic profile could be efficient with the wind but it reduced the rigidity of the frame. They also realized that many frames didn't work very well for cross winds and complicated control over the bike. But Fuji overcame all those drawbacks with new C10 carbon fiber tubing designs, achieving aerodynamics and excellent bike control.
In short, the Fuji Track Elite is the most rigid frame that Fuji has ever made and its sole purpose is to win medals and take its rider to the top of the podium.
Originally founded as a Japanese bicycle manufacturing company (Nichibei Trading) in 1899, Fuji is one of the oldest surviving bicycle brands in the world. Fuji's steadfast philosophy in utilizing the most advanced technology and incorporating elite athlete input into its high-performance products has enabled the brand to endure while others have faltered. Fuji expanded to the United States market in the 1970s and stormed onto the international racing scene in the '80s, with the likes of Olympic gold medalists Mark Gorski and Connie Paraskevin.
Today, Fuji has joined forces with parent company Advanced Sports International (ASI) to become a truly global cycling brand. Building on a legacy of firsts dating back to Japan's first Olympic cycling appearances in the 1920s, sponsorship of the first U.S. women's road racing team (Fuji-Suntour) in the '70s, and numerous world championship and national titles over the past century, Fuji's pinnacle moment came in 2011 when Juan Jose Cobo earned the brand its first-ever grand tour victory at the Vuelta a España.
