Once upon a time, all hardtails were cut from the same bit of Spandex®. Every one of them a wispy, razor-sharp racing machine. Fuse isn’t that kind of hardtail. Fuse isn’t about chasing podiums—it’s about chasing thrills.
The Fuse is snappy, confident, and happiest on trails that make other hardtails cry. Fuse is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, a Stumpjumper without the squishy bits. It’s a bike in the key of badass.
Let’s Work Together
This might be the playlist era, but do you remember getting handed an actual mixtape? There was this rush of excitement and anticipation—a feeling of familiarity stepping into someone else’s brain and loving what you heard? It made it so easy to get lost and inspired by the music.

We call it the Mixtape Collection—bikes and gear that celebrate what brings us all together.
Thirty years is a hell of a long time to obsess over the perfect shoe. Then again, the result is a hell of a shoe—say hello to the S-Works Recon. Incredibly lightweight, rugged and almost freakishly cozy, Recon is the perfect shoe for anyone seeking speed over dirt, gravel or mud.

A MORE "EPIC" EPIC
Fast—it’s been the Epic’s calling card for more than a decade. And in that time, it's rocketed more World Champions, Olympians, and everyday racers to the podium than any bike in its class. Racing between the tape, however, isn’t the only way to worship at the altar of speed. Long, fast rides, marathon races over technical terrain—consider these the Epic EVO’s domain from now on.
You know who’s great at getting women riding bikes? Other women. Let’s celebrate those who're taking the lead and sharing the stoke to get more women and girls on bikes. Representation matters, because when we see each other out there, we’re inspired to get out there and ride, too.
