Specialized Fuse 27.5 inch 2022 Aluminium Hardtail MTB Satin Doppio/Sand

5 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

The Specialized Fuse 27.5 is extremely versatile and is more than capable of tackling rough, sketchy descents or steep, technical climbs or even just the local park. The all-new Fuse is longer, lower and has a more rowdy chassis. The Fuse features high volume 27.5 x 2.3 inch tyres that let you hit roots and rocks at high speed with total control. This set-up provides loads of traction and stability, but it's also compatible with 29er wheels and tyres.

The wide tube diameter boosts stiffness while the low top tube improves agility and manoeuvrability on tight, technical trails. The slack head angle gives you plenty of confidence on tricky descents while the steep seat tube angle provides a great position for pedalling up the climbs. Finally, the long reach allows you to get an even weight distribution for maximum stability.

The control of a plus-sized bike is second to none. Making light work of bumpy trails, it makes the 130mm of suspension provided by the X-Fusion MIG fork feel like much more. The single ring microSHIFT Advent 9-speed drivetrain provides hassle-free, smooth gear shifting while Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and a dropper seatpost provide all the control you could ever need.

  • A1 Premium Aluminium frame
  • X-Fusion MIG fork with 130mm travel
  • microSHIFT Advemt 9-speed gearing
  • Shimano DR-MT200 hydraulic disc brakes
  • TransX dropper post

Our Verdict
