Celebrating 111 years of cycling, Fuji Bikes is ready for the golden bike which was first shown for a dramatic movie short at Footon-Servetto-Fuji team presentation. After a great response and Manuel Cardoso rode at the Tour Down Under, Fuji decided to add some changes for the Tour de France.

The Fuji Golden Road Bike is nicknamed by Fuji as the “Fu-sion X”, while the brand clashed a blend of paint and metal, but avoided the traditional metallic paint flecking look. The process Fuji took was ground down the aluminum making a gleaming finish, and adds paint.

Rolled out at the Tour of California, and getting ready to run into production is the Mad Fiber Full Carbon Wheelset. Weighing in at 1085 grams a set, the Mad Fiber full carbon fiber wheels are the first production, and Ric Hjertberg has returned as the companies president to wheel manufacturing.

The front Mad Fiber carbon wheel utilizes a carbon shelled hub, while using a alloy axle, giving the wheel a unique look. Taking the wheels in a different direction, Mad Fiber took the carbon spokes and bonded to the hub and rim. This technique made sure high levels of stress was eliminated compared to drilling or molding.

OCLV Hex SL brings the same stiffness just like the high modulus carbon but is uses twice the elongation properties, and four times the strength.
