Fuji’s roots go back to 1899 in Japan, although despite its name the modern company is actually US-based. It’s got a wide range of road, mountain and leisure bikes and recently launched a new version of its carbon Gran Fondo endurance bike. The Sportif range sits below this, with the 1.1D being its top model.
