When comparing the Fuji Gran Fondo and SST frame designs, it’s important to consider not only how the bike fits, but for whom the bike is intended. Both frames feature a tapered head tube, to improve stability and front-end handling, and an oversized Press-Fit BB86 bottom bracket to shave weight and add stiffness by way of a larger down tube and chain stays. However, the geometries of the Gran Fondo and SST vary greatly to address specific riding end goals. The Gran Fondo finds the perfect balance between wanting to go fast and stay comfortable, while the SST is meant to perform at the highest level.
If you're going to talk the talk, then you should walk the walk. The Fuji Gran Fondo and Altamira carbon road bikes are designed with impeccable style and deliver pure speed with every pedal revolution. Their proprietary Fuji frame and fork technologies are the perfect blend of fashion and function, and each is designed for a specific discipline in cycling. While both frames both have similar modern features, like a tapered head tube and a Press-Fit BB86 bottom bracket shell, their respective geometries differ greatly.

We know that your time is precious. You want the best riding experience possible without having to guess which bike will deliver the results that you need. Luckily, Fuji has designed their road bikes with the varying needs of cyclists in mind. Two of Fuji’s most beloved road platforms, the Sportif and the Roubaix, may look the same, but upon closer examination there are clear differences. Both frames are made from Fuji’s proprietary, lightweight and comfortable, hydroformed aluminum tubing, but that is where the similarities end.
