If you haven't ridden on 27.5+ tires, we challenge you to do it and not walk away with a stoked-out grin. Case in point is the Fuse Comp 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 you'll be shouting it from the rooftops. These bigger tires put out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And then there's everything else that makes it ride like a proper trail machine.
This Fuse places a focus on blending durability, performance, and utility. To do so, we spec'd it with a bulletproof SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, a sweet dropper post, and a RockShox Revelation RC fork with 120mm of buttery smooth travel. And exclusive to the Fuse family with this model, utility is finally covered with the addition of integrated storage at the downtube 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 integrated a SWAT Door create a tidy aesthetic and zero-hassle storage.
- A RockShox Revelation RC fork handles suspension up front with ease, soaking up bumpy terrain with 120mm of plush travel.
- SRAM's 12-speed NX Eagle groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades. On top of this, the one-by setup is notorious for being next to impossible to drop a chain with, and it provides significant weight savings in comparison to a standard two-by setup.
