Fuse Expert 29

Fuse Expert 29

Description

The Fuse Expert 29 thriving on the kind of technical trails that make other hardtails cry. The top-shelf Fuse Expert 29 brings all of that to play with its light-yet-burly M4 aluminum chassis and a component package that takes a beating and comes back for more.

ROWDY BY DESIGN

The Fuse is loaded with smart touches. The wide-diameter down tube boosts stiffness. The low-slung top tube gives you the clearance to throw the bike around on tight trails. And while this Fuse's 29x2.6 tires give it a precise, nimble feel, the frame is also compatible with 27.5+ wheels and tires.

PERFECTLY DIALED

If you fail to nail the geometry, advanced materials and innovative designs still amount to nothing out on the trail. Fuse gets it right. The long reach gives you even weight distribution. The slack head angle lends confidence on sketchy descents. The steep seat angle makes quick work of steep climbs.

• Shimano SLX 12-speed drivetrain gives you single-ring simplicity yet lets you tackle big climbs without coughing up a lung.
