With a lightweight aluminum frame and a 7-speed Shimano groupset, the Sportif 2.7 offers riders a wide range of gears for whatever terrain they need to tackle. Whether they're starting to ride for exercise, interested in joining bar crawls and social rides, or just making their way across campus, riders can rely on the Fuji Sportif 2.7 to provide a lively ride. The Sportif 2.7's lightweight A2-SL alloy frame keeps the bike feeling spritely with its light weight and immediate responsiveness. With tapered seatstays and chainstays, this frame also adds a degree of comfort to the ride, soaking up some of the vibrations inherent in road riding. An alloy fork with an integrated helps keep the overall weight of the bike down while reducing drag on the front end. In a subdued charcoal black colorway, the Sportif 2.7 oozes class. This frame also includes eyelets for rack mounts, a nod to the bike's versatile nature. The drivetrain consists of Shimano's 7-speed A070 groupset, a capable, gripshift-actuated groupset that offers riders a tremendous value. Shimano's products appear every year at the Tour de France, and all of their groupsets benefit from their decades of experience as the leading name in bicycle racing. A crankset with 50/34 chainrings and a 14-28 cassette offer riders plenty of gears for whatever terrain they might encounter, and an alloy brakeset offers sure, steady braking power. Double-wall alloy wheels are laced with 32 spokes each, making a tough, durable wheelset that can take whatever punishment you care to dish out. Whether riders are riding over potholes or curbs, these wheels are ready to bounce back and keep them in the action. 700x25c Kenda Kwest tires minimize rolling resistance, making for a faster-rolling wheel and a more efficient ride. Quality steel and alloy parts finish out the cockpit, further contributing to the Fuji Sportif 2.7's durability. Whether you're just joining the sport or looking for a bike for your social rides, the Sportif 2.7 offers uncompromising performance in an affordable package.
