PHILADELPHIA, PA (BRAIN) —With a focus on fit and adjustability, Fuji has released its new tri/TT bike, the Norcom Straight.
Offered in five sizes from small (49cm) to extra-large (57cm), the high-modulus carbon aero frame has a pocket engineered into the headtube that allows for up to 135 millimeters of cockpit height adjustability. The stem can be slammed down in the pocket for an aggressive riding position or mounted on stacked spacers that fit inside the pocket for a more upright position.
The Norcom Straight also features a specially designed integrated 3D-forged stem from house parts brand Oval Concepts that comes in six lengths and two angle options for positive or negative rise. Oval also provides its UCI-compliant 960 aero bar on the top-of-the-line Norcom Straight 1.1 with three arm rest width options, five arm rest cup rotational positions and four riser height options—for a total of 60 arm rest options.
Further enhancing adjustability, an integrated 400-millimeter seatpost offers 180 millimeters of adjustable seat height and 70 millimeters of fore/aft movement, equating to a range of effective seat tube angles from 74 to 81 degrees.
Horizontally adjustable vertical dropout ease wheel changes in addition to allowing riders to fine-tune their wheel base.
To achieve frame stiffness, Fuji built the frame with its patented RIB technology, running a reinforcing rib through the length of the downtube and fork.
Named after a Strava segment on Fuji employees’ lunchtime ride route in Philly, the Norcom Straight comes in five builds, ranging from the Shimano 105-equipped 2.5 (MSRP: $2,299) to the $7,499 top-end 1.1, decked out in Dura-Ace 9000.
