“One of the year’s most anticipated bikes just showed up for testing, Fuji’s new lightweight SL climbing machine. Launched at this year’s Vuelta a España, the claimed weight for the SL frame is a staggering 695 grams, which is nearly 20 percent lighter than any bike the company has ever produced. Our test bike, the SL 1.3 (MSRP: $6320) is equipped with a Shimano Dura Ace Di2 drivetrain, Oval brand cockpit and wheelset, and top-of-the line Vittoria Open Corsa 320tpi tires. Out of the box weight: 14.17 pounds for a size 56cm.
But the bike is more than just light. During initial testing, we’ve found the Fuji SL 1.3 to be extremely comfortable, though still very stiff in the bottom bracket. On a recent effort up the legendary Page Mill road (an 8-mile climb), we logged our third fastest climb time.” -Road Bike Review
“The only sub-8kg bike among the four we’ve tested at the same time (Cannondale Synapse, Specialized Tarmac & BMC TeamMachine), Fuji’s SL 2.3, while on first sight not totally living up to its super-light billing, does sport Shimano Ultegra shifters and a high-modulus carbon-fibre frame that should make riding uphill more of a joy. The firm’s top-of-the range SL 1.1 lays claim (for now) to being the lightest production road bike in the world, tipping the scales at less than 5kg (depending on final build). Does it lend this more affordable model any of its fleet-footedness, and is the SL 2.3 a mid-price all-rounder?” -Cyclist
“Fuji knew how much everyone loved the ride and stiffness of their Altamira line, and that they needed to set the stakes high. The result is a frame that came in at a jaw dropping 695 grams without sacrificing anything that the Altamira offered.” -Bike Rumor
“American company launches new range-topper, which comes with the third lightest production frame of all time” – Cycling Weekly
