Ruze Expert

You don't need all the trail fixings to benefit from more traction, increased control, and elevated confidence. Nope. You just need what you know will work, day-in and day-out, from the trailhead to the ride home. And of course, you'll be in need of the Ruze Expert with our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System.

The revolutionary design of this system puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And the Expert blends the aforementioned characteristics with durable and dependable components, like powerful SRAM DB3 hydraulic disc brakes, one-by 11-speed GX shifting, and fan-favorite RockShox Reba RL fork. Even better, every aspect of the bike has been tailored to meet women's needs on the trail, from the saddle to the standover to the crankarm length.

The Ruze Expert is everything you need to hit the trail with more confidence and more speed.

  • When it came to construction, M4 Premium Aluminum proved to be the right material for the job, allowing a lightweight, durable frame with our Women’s Trail Geometry that’s equal parts snappy and efficient on climbs and descents, while maintaining an ultra-low standover. It also allowed us to accommodate the 6Fattie Wheel System without compromising on our hallmark short chainstays that provide unrivaled handling and climbing prowess.
  • A RockShox Reba RL fork pairs 100mm of smooth travel with adjustable rebound for maximum absorbency over harsh terrain and easy, on-the-fly adjustments to the damping to hit the perfect tune.
  • The SRAM GX 11-speed drivetrain grants you access to a wide range of gears, while providing crisp, reliable shifting.
