If you show us a trail rider that says they couldn’t use more traction, we’ll show a trail rider that’s never ridden our Fuse. We like to call it the ultimate trail hardtail, and with a 27.5+ tire system, this becomes more than just talk. Its 27.5 x 3.0″ tires put out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And to solidify itself as a sweet trail machine, this iteration of the Fuse places a focus on blending tough-as-nails durability with reliable performance. This meant spec’ing it with strong alloy rims, a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and an SR Suntour fork with 120mm of travel. It has everything you need to ride harder and go faster, and nothing that you don’t.
- The frame features an A1 Premium Aluminum construction that provides an ideal blend of efficiency and durability.
- An SR Suntour XCM32 6Fattie fork features stiff 32mm stanchions and up to 120mm of smooth travel.
- Shimano Deore shifting kit is precise and damn tough, so it can face down rock gardens and rough trails while still providing accurate and reliable shifting.
