The original Jari gravel bike from Fuji was typical of the brand. It was great value, well put together and hit all the right notes when it came to practicality.

The new Jari, spotted at Eurobike 2022, shakes things up with a host of features that should appeal to fans of gravel racing, bikepacking and long-distance adventures.

Firstly, the frame is a radical departure, with its new aero-profiled tubing and super-dropped seatstays.

There’s also an elongated bottom bracket section designed to take a new under-BB storage box and, in turn, make plenty of room for frame bags (because it allows the bottle cage bosses to be mounted lower).

In fact, storage is a key theme with the new Fuji Jari. On the top tube, Fuji has fitted a soft rubber section complete with elasticated mini-bungees to strap in your favourite snacks.

The D-shaped seatpost has a cutaway in its mid-section, with an elastomer section bonded to allow for more cushioning, according to Fuji. It’s an idea we’ve seen from Merida on the S-Flex post of the Reacto aero road bike.

The D-shaped seatpost has a squishy section to improve comfort. The clamp has an adaptor to accept a 27.2mm dropper post.

Elsewhere on the seatpost, Fuji has used an adaptor for the D-shaped clamp, to allow the Jari to run a standard 27.2mm design and, therefore, a dropper post. It’s a design similar to that on the 2022 Bike of the Year-winning Giant Revolt.

Up front, the new Jari’s cables have been integrated by adopting FSA’s ACR stem and headset system.

There is also an all-new fork design, which brings adjustable offset, much in the same way as Rondo’s HVRT and GT’s Grade Carbon.

There are numerous fixtures and fittings too, with fender/mudguard mounts front and rear, ‘anything’ mounts on the fork, the under-BB storage box, bottle bosses, dropper-post routing and even internal routing for a dynamo.

There are two bikes in the range at launch.

The range consists of the flagship Fuji Jari Carbon 1.1 with Shimano GRX810 and WTB Speedterra i25 tubeless wheels (price €3,499).
