The Fuse has already proven that more volume means more speed, and we took this foundational idea and made it even better with carbon. Say hello to the Fuse Expert Carbon.
To start, it lives by the philosophy that more tire volume results in more speed. It might be a claim that sounds flipped on its head, but one ride and it'll have you shouting this sentiment from the rooftops. Our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And with the philosophy of the design out of the way, it came time to solidify its place as a proper trail machine. 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 Fuse places a focus on blending durability, performance, and utility. To do so, we spec'd it with Roval alloy rims, a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and the latest from FOX, the Rhythm FLOAT 34 fork with 120mm of buttery-smooth travel.
Lastly, utility is finally covered for the first time in Fuse history with the addition of integrated storage at the down tube via our SWAT™ Door.
FACT 10m carbon fiber frame construction blends stiffness with light weight to form the pinnacle of efficiency, while internal routing tubes and an integrated SWAT™ Door create a tidy aesthetic and zero-hassle storage.
FOX Rhythm FLOAT 34 is the latest trail-taming fork from the masterminds at FOX, offering two-position sweep adjust and 120mm of plush travel.
The mix of SRAM X1 and GX components deliver the value of a much more expensive groupset, shedding weight and practically eliminating the possibility of a dropped chain.
