For 2011, Fuji redesigned their Outland mountain bikes, which consists of the 3.0, 2.0, and 1.0.
The 2011 Fuji Outland is your all purpose mtb, but is geared towards cross country. In 2010, the Outland used 100mm of travel, but in 2011 it will use 125mm.
Another new feature for the 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 2011 Fuji Outland is the low pressure shock, which is easier to tune, and will last longer.
The rocker is 3D, and keyed. What this means is when the bolt is out of the rocker arms, it will not stick.
Fuji assured us that any pressure applied to the rear end would not result in the 2011 Outland’s seat stay getting any closer to the seat post, which happens to many full suspension mountain bikes. After attempting to do so twice, we gave up.
Now it is time to go over the specific models in the 2011 Fuji Outland line, starting with the 1.0:
The Fuji 2011 Outland 1.0 features Shimano SLX Hollow crankset, front derailleur, shifters, and cassette. Various other Shimano components make up the rest of the drivetrain. This ride uses Rock Shox Recon Silver TK Solo Air Taper steerer forks, and a Rock Shox Monarch RT3 rear shock. The 1.0 2011 Outland comes in black/Fuji red, and retails for $2599.
The 2011 Fuji Outland 2.0 is equipped with Shimano Deore and XT throughout the drivetrain, Rock Shox Recon Silver TK Solo Air Taper steerer fork, and a Rock Shox Ario R rear shock. Not as stand out as the other two Outland’s in it’s colorways: It comes in dark silver/midnight blue. MSRP is $2249.
The last of the line is the 3.0. The Fuji 2011 Outland 3.0 takes a step down in components, but uses a Rock Shox Tora TK Coil Alloy Taper fork, Rock Shox Bar R rear shock, Shimano Alivio and Decore drivetrain. Releasing in a loud black/orange color scheme, retail is $2149.
