27.5-Inch Plus Wheel
Take a look at the world's strongest man, and you're not going to find some chiseled Adonis. You're going to find someone who has more volume. The Mountain, anyone? Behind the "extra" surface area, though, there's a man that can dominate a caber toss and run down the tarmac with a plane in tow. Mathematically, it could be broken down as more volume + versatility = dominance, and that's exactly what's at play with the Fuse Comp. These bigger tires put out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And with this model, we spec'd it with a no-nonsense build that's handpicked to get the job done. Components like a dropper post and a buttery-smooth, 120mm RockShox Recon RL fork ensure that, no matter how rugged, technical, or hair-raising that job might be, the Fuse can handle it with ease. - M4 Aluminum with Smooth Welds proved to be the right material for the job, allowing a lightweight, durable frame with a low and slack geometry that's equal parts snappy and efficient on climbs and descents. It also allowed us to incorporate our exclusive Diamond Stay that accommodates the 27.5+ wheels & tires without compromising on our hallmark short chainstays. - A RockShox Recon RL fork handles suspension duties up front with 120mm of plush travel, and the Motion Control damper makes sure you climb and descend with the utmost of efficiency. - SRAM's 11-speed NX groupset features a wide gear range that delivers tons of climbing and descending efficiency.
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.
