Details

If you have yet to ride a bike with a 6Fattie Wheel/Tire system, Specialized challenges you to do so without walking away with a stoked-out grin. Case in point is the Fuse Comp Carbon.

It lives by the philosophy that more tire volume results in more speed. It might be a claim that sounds flipped on its head, but one ride and it'll have you shouting this sentiment from the rooftops. Specialized's 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And with the philosophy of the design out of the way, it came time to solidify its place as a proper trail machine. This system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand.

And to solidify itself as a proper trail machine, this Fuse places a focus on blending durability, performance, and utility. To do so, they spec'd it with a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and a bump-smoothing RockShox Reba RL 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 the SWAT Door.

- FACT 10m carbon fiber frame construction blends stiffness with light weight to form the pinnacle of efficiency, while internal routing tubes and integrated an SWAT Door create a tidy aesthetic and zero-hassle storage.

- A RockShox Reba RL fork handles suspension up front with ease, soaking up bumpy terrain with 120mm of plush travel.

- SRAM's 11-speed GX groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades. On top of this, the one-by setup is notorious for being next to impossible to drop a chain with, plus it provides a significant weight savings in comparison to a standard two-by setup.
