Bike Profile: SoCalCycling.com Team Fuji Roubaix Elite Team Bike


The SoCalCycling.com Team has consistently been landing the Team on the podium week in and week out. Whether the Team is climbing the hills in a road race or winning a field sprint in a criterium or just riding off the front, the Fuji Roubaix Elite frame has proven to be a solid all around performer.

Fuji Bikes explains, “The Fuji Roubaix Elite was designed with the goal of creating one of the lightest aluminum race bikes on the market. With a frame weight of 1090g, it sits in an elite class of aluminum road bikes. Svelte as it is, the Roubaix doesn’t sacrifice strength or stiffness to be a featherweight.”

Some Key Features on of the Fuji Roubaix Elite frame include:

  • A6-SL super-butted alloy frame removes frame material from low stress areas to decrease frame weight while maintaining frame stiffness
  • 1090g raw frame weight
  • FC440 full carbon fork with tapered steerer tube
  • Roubaix Elite uses an anodized finish on the frame that is ultra durable and limits additional weight to the frame
  • Internal cable routing for clean aesthetics and long cable life
  • Shaped tubing near the bottom bracket maximize power transfer
  • Asymmetrical chainstays maintain lateral stiffness and aid in improved pedaling efficiency
