Last year, the Fuse proved that more volume means more speed. And this year, we took a proven idea and made it even better with carbon. Say hello to the Fuse Expert Carbon 6Fattie. It features our 6Fattie Wheel System in order to put out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And to solidify itself as a proper trail machine, this Fuse places a focus on blending durability, performance, and utility. To do so, we spec'd it with Roval alloy rims, a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and the latest from FOX, the Rhythm FLOAT 34 fork with 120mm of buttery-smooth travel. Lastly, utility is finally covered for the first time in Fuse history with the addition of integrated storage at the down tube via our SWAT™ Door.
- FACT 10m carbon fibre frame construction blends stiffness with light weight to form the pinnacle of efficiency, while internal routing tubes and an integrated SWAT™ Door create a tidy aesthetic and zero-hassle storage.
- FOX Rhythm FLOAT 34 is the latest trail-taming fork from the masterminds at FOX, offering two-position sweep adjust and 120mm of plush travel.
- 650bx3.0" 6Fattie Purgatory and Ground Control tyres feature a perfectly sized contact patch for life-changing levels of traction and control while cornering, all without sacrificing climbing efficiency or descending prowess. And with a GRID casing protecting the sidewalls, these tyres will stand up to anything the trail can throw at them.
