The Fuse is proof that you don’t need heaps of suspension to tackle technical trails and challenging features. This control-focused bike features large volume tires, creating a larger contact patch and that is stable and absorbs trail chatter. The geometry is very similar to the Stumpjumper, with a slack head tube angle, and short chainstays, giving the bike a planted feel. It also features a 1x drivetrain for simplicity and contains a swat box in the frame, allowing space for all your trail essentials. Riders have the ability to switch between 27.5 and 29, but the bike comes stock with tubeless ready 27.5 x 2.8wheels and a dropper seatpost.
The Fuse Comp features 29’ wheels, 12 speed rear cassette, as opposed to the 11 speed on the base model, and 4 piston hydraulic disc brakes. Complete with a lighter aluminum frame, the Fuse Comp delivers a lighter, more planted ride for only $400 more.
The Fuse Pro offers a higher quality groupset, brakes, and FOX float fork with 29’ wheels, creating the smoothest and most predictable Fuse for $2,600.
