Fuji brings together engineers, mechanics and pro riders utilizing the racing arena as a laboratory for developing world-class bikes at the leading edge of technology. Each bike that Fuji creates goes through years of conceptual work, prototype building and testing before ever reaching a consumer.
Bikes are personal machines, and every bike fits a different need for a different type of rider. A Fuji will exceed your expectations of quality and performance. If it didn’t, we wouldn’t build the bike.
