The Fuji Supreme is a pretty decent women-specific road bike that offers good speeds and comfortable riding. The Supreme range has some lightweight carbon frames and excellent Shimano componentry, although not all the models are up to par for competition.
Fuji bikes has been in the industry for well over a century now, and their namesake is a symbol of endurance and strength. So it should come as no surprise that we expected some big things from their bikes when we took the Supreme models for a spin to review.
On the whole, we were pleased with performance, comfort, specs, and weight. Coming in at around 7-8 kg or 15-18 lb, this is a really light road bike, perfect for us women! It certainly felt light on the ride, and we hit some flying speeds.
The finishing kit on these bikes is super comfy, which is ideal for those endurance runs. Shimano Dura Ace componentry on the Supreme 1.1 makes for some excellent performance, but on the lower end models, the 105s were not up to par for the price. The only other qualm we had was that the 2.0 brakes were not too good. Other than that, these bikes felt confident and smooth, and look pretty neat too!
Comfortable finishing kit
Smooth and confident riding
Excellent componentry on the higher end
Light weight and well suited geometry
Lower end Supreme componentry a bit subpar for price
Brakes on the 2.0 felt a little soft
These are great road bikes for women for a midrange price, although the lower end models could use an upgrade or two.
We certainly loved the Fuji Supreme, and recommend them for recreation and practice, with the Supreme 1.1 being superb for competition. If you can upgrade the 2.0, it’s also worth buying without having to go broke!
