2019 Fuse 27.5+

If you show us a trail rider that says they couldn't use more traction, we'll show a trail rider that's never ridden our Fuse.

We like to call it the ultimate trail hardtail, and with a 27.5+ tire system, this becomes more than just talk. Its 27.5 x 3.0" tires put out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs.

And to solidify itself as a sweet trail machine, this iteration of the Fuse places a focus on blending tough-as-nails durability with reliable performance. This meant spec'ing it with strong alloy rims, a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and an SR Suntour fork with 120mm of travel. It has everything you need to ride harder and go faster, and nothing that you don't.

Hard tail Havoc

Fun bike easy to get into tight corners. Back end is light easy to pick up and hop. The plus size 3"" tires can be pressurized to assist the front forks travel. If you are doing light trails the, suntour fork handles well after a break in period. If you hit the trail hard.... Might wish to look into upgrades. Nice that specialized put in a flared crown for future upgrades. Solid gearing for a long climb up a hill. Does poorly if you want a high speed bike around town, but this bike is at home on single track.

Hard Charger

I've had this bike for 6 weeks. I live in NM, and we have all kinds of different terrain and it's handled it all great. It's a trail killer. I did get new grips and pedals.

Awesome aggressive hard tail!

I have had this bike for a year now, and it has shredded enduros, parks, techy double blacks etc. This bike is well worth the money and it is a great bike to own. The long reach is great to have, and the plus tires are awesome. This is not a slow bike either. I have placed podium in XC against over a hundred other racers. Awesome bike!

Great mid level bike!

Had mine for a few weeks now and I will say I love it. Great out of the gate but gets better with a few tweaks. I personally think a grippier back tire and thicker grips would improve the feel of the bike and improve handling. Also maybe a 30 tooth front gear is what I would prefer. Otherwise a solid entry in the lineup.
