With plus sized tyres offering next level grip, control and floatation the Specialized Expert 6Fattie is a hardtail mountain bike built for taking on the roughest and loosest trails. If you’re looking for extra grip in the corners, more cushioning over rough terrain whilst still gunning down your favourite trail, the Fuse 6Fattie is for you.
You can buy the Fuse Expert 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 (650+) and 3” tyres. To fit these wheels the Fuse Expert 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.
120mm of plush travel from the Manitou Magnum Comp 650+ fork combined with the extra wide tyres helps you float over rocks and roots. Adjustable rebound damping and compression damping (on the fly) means the fork can be dialled in to suit individual trail sections.
SRAM’s GX 10 speed drivetrain with a wide range cassette offers all the gears you need to take on trail centre loops and cross country adventures. Powerful SRAM DB3 brakes offer confident speed control in all 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.
