Experience next level grip, control and floatation on a hardtail with the Fuse Comp 6Fattie. This is a hardtail built for taking on rough and loose trails. If you’re looking for the simplicity of a hardtail yet want to smash it over rough terrain, have extra grip in the corners and cushioning the 6Fattie is for you.
You can buy the Fuse Comp 6Fattie through a 0% interest Tredz Finance package.
Making their debut for 2016 are the new 27.5+, aka 6Fattie, wheel size. You have the same diameter wheels as 650b but with wider rims and 3” tyres. To fit these wheels the Fuse requires a plus sized fork and a wider 148mm rear hub. The oversized tyre has a much larger volume which makes the overall diameter similar to that of a 29er.
Plus sized wheels massively improve your grip through a wider contact patch. This lets you hit the corners faster, making the Fuse ideal for scree-filled switchbacks and loose singletrack.
A higher tyre volume allows you to run lower pressures with less risk of pinching the tyre on the rim. This gives you more floatation (cushioning) which acts as extra suspension. This is why 6Fatties are much smoother than other hardtails on rough and tough terrain. Running at lower pressure further increases grip.
Rolling resistance is slightly increased, but the added grip you get in return more than makes up for this.
Specialized’s Fuse is built from M4 Premium Aluminium with butted and smooth welds for a lightweight frame with nimble handling. A tapered head tube provides a stiff front end for enhanced steering precision.
Unique to the Fuse are Diamond Stays. The chainstay splits in two where it joins the bottom bracket. This is to allow clearance for the 3” wide tyre while keeping the stays as short as possible - to improve handling.
The Fuse 6Fattie has a slack head angle, low bottom bracket and short chainstays for a stable yet nimble ride.
Internal gear and dropper post routing keeps the lines clean.
Upfront is an SR Suntour Raidon 650+ air sprung fork with adjustable rebound and compression damping so you can diat it in to match the terrain, and your riding style. 120mm plush suspension travel (100mm on size small) combined with lower pressure tyres is ideal for pinning it over rough singletrack.
A SRAM 10 speed drivetrain with a wide range cassette offers all the gears you’re going to need to take on trail centre loops and XC adventures. Powerful hydraulic disc brakes allow you to ride confidently in all weather conditions.
Extra wide WTB i45 Scraper rims offer great support for the 3” tyres and a TranzX dropper post allows you to get athletic on the frame.
