ALTAMIRA CX You could argue a cross bike works harder than any other: Sprint off the start, rail a corner, rub elbows, sprint, jump a barrier, sprint again, run up a hill, descend through mud, ice, and sand. Repeat. It only makes sense to add discbrakes when the action is this fast and furious. Cyclocross racing is about to be revolutionized by the control disc-brakes provide in all weather conditions, and Fuji is leading the charge.

“FUJI UPPED THE ANTE ON ITS ALREADY FAST ALTAMIRA CX 1.0 WITH THE ALTAMIRA DISC. BASED CLOSELY ON THE EXISTING ALTAMIRA, THE DISC MODEL HAS A NEW FORK PRODUCED IN-HOUSE BY FUJI. WHILE NOT IN THE FINAL PRODUCTION PHASE, THE DEMO RODE LIKE A FINISHED PRODUCT WITH NO CHATTER OR WIGGLE…WE SPENT SOME TIME ON THE ALTAMIRA DISC, AND IT WAS NOTABLE FOR ITS STABILITY AND EXCELLENT BRAKE PERFORMANCE…THE DISC BRAKES INCREASED CONFIDENCE CONSIDERABLY, EVEN WHEN COMPARED TO STIFF V-BRAKE OPTIONS.” – LOGAN VONBOKEL, VELO NEWS “FUJI HAS PUT TOGETHER A MONSTER OF A RACE BIKE WITH THE ALTAMIRA CX 1.0. JUST LOOKING AT THE BIKE GIVES YOU THE FEELING IT’S TAUNTING YOU TO THROW YOUR WORST AT IT AND CHALLENGE IT IN THE MOST BRUTAL CONDITIONS. FROM THE GROUND UP, THE BIKE POSSESSES ALL THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES TO BE COMPETITIVE AT ANY LEVEL OF CYCLOCROSS RACING…TO SUM IT UP THE 1.0 IS LIGHT, FAST AND SURPRISINGLY COMFORTABLE. STABILITY WAS ALSO ONE OF ITS STANDOUT CHARACTERISTICS; IT EASILY LETS YOU RIP DOWN HIGH-SPEED ROADS WITHOUT HESITATION.” – DILLON CLAP, ROAD
