More traction, more float and now a carbon frame. The Specialized Fuse Expert Carbon is a hardtail mountain bike that rolls on plus sized 6Fattie wheels and is ideal for tearing up your favourite trails. The Fuse is a simple but very effective alternative to a full sus MTB.
Built from the ground up for 6Fattie (27.5+) wheels and tyres the Fuse features a stiff and lightweight FACT 10m carbon fibre composite frame. With a slack head angle and low bottom bracket height the Fuse delivers stable handling at speed while the short chainstays offer nimble handling in the tight. The SWAT Door storage system in the down tube means you can store your trail essentials low down on the bike instead of on your back.
Plus sized wheels massively improve your grip through a wider contact patch. This lets you hit the corners faster, making the Fuse ideal for scree-filled switchbacks and loose singletrack. With a greater tyre volume, the 3” Ground Control tyres give you more floatation (cushioning) which acts as extra suspension. This is why 6Fatties are much smoother than other hardtails on rough terrain.
The Fox Float 34 Rhythm fork offers 120mm of trail munching travel with 2 position sweep adjustment so you can adapt the forks performance to the trail ahead. The SRAM X1/GX1 1×11 speed drivetrain offers dependable shifting across a wide gear range while the SRAM Guide brakes give you composed stopping power.
