If you show us a trail rider that says they couldn’t use more traction, we’ll show the trail rider that’s never ridden our Fuse. We like to call it the ultimate trail hardtail, and with our 6Fattie Wheel/Tyre System, this becomes more than just talk. Its 650bx3.0″ tyres put out more traction, more flotation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. This system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels (not included) and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand. And to solidify itself as a proper trail machine, this iteration of the Fuse places a focus on blending durability with performance. To do so, we spec’d it with strong alloy rims, a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and a SR Suntour fork with 80mm 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 the ideal blend of efficiency and durability. It also allowed us to incorporate our exclusive Diamond Stay that accommodates the 6Fattie wheels/tires without compromising on our hallmark short chainstays that provide unrivaled handling and climbing prowess.
- An SR Suntour XCM32 fork features up to 100mm of smooth travel.
- SRAM GX rear derailleur is precise and strong, so it can face down rock gardens and rough trails while still providing accurate, reliable shifting.
