The new Fuse is perfect for Christmas

The Fuse is here and it breaks the mould. A hardtail that gets back to the roots of mountain biking, the Fuse isn’t about getting results, it’s about seeking thrills and having fun.

The perfect hardtail for Christmas maybe? The big day is just around the corner so how about gifting yourself something that is sure to transform your riding in 2020. After all, it is a new decade – let’s get shredding.

The Fuse is special. Every single detail has been homed in on and refined by the guys and girls in our engineering shop to improve the ride quality of the model. This includes a wide diameter downtube to boost stiffness, a low top tube for improved manoeuvrability and precisely designed seatstays for maximum clearance. 

The Fuse has been dialled in to be the perfect hardtail. A long reach for even weight distribution is paired with a slack head angle for confidence when you’re shredding the trails. But then the steep seat angle position and 1X drivetrain is perfect for when the trail turns skyward and you have to get the power down.

This bike is built to shred and its components help that to no end. The Fuse is ready for anything, fitted with RockShox forks with 130 millimetres of travel, a rigid frame and Stout Trail wheelset – take your pick from 29er or 27.5+ tyre and wheel combo to tailor your bike to your riding style. We know what you want from a hardtail, and that means the Fuse has reliable hydraulic disc brakes and a TransX dropper seat post so you can get the best performance out of the bike.

The Fuse Expert 29 has a beautiful brushed steel look and is kitted out in all our top of the range components. The RockShox 35 Gold fork provides ample suspension and the NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain lets you take on any climb without blowing a gasket. The 29x2.6 tyres give you precise handling too and the Expert 29 is also 27.5x2.8 ready.

The Fuse Comp 29 and its light M4 aluminium frame gives you some naughty geometry to play around with. Fitted with a RockShox Recon RL fork and SX Eagle 12-speed, there’s enough suspension and tonnes of gearing to get you out of any rut.

Last in the range, but by no means least, is the Fuse 27.5. This one really stands out with its beautiful gloss crimson/rocket red livery. This model is fitted with 27.5x2.8 wheels and tyres as standard which optimise traction over tricky obstacles like rocks and roots on the most technical of trails.

Accessories to go with the perfect Christmas gift 

Now you have the badass bike, how about some accessories to keep you looking the part?

Our Demo Pro clothing range is a good place to start. With sleek design, comfort and performance in mind, our range of tops, trousers and shorts are both light and durable. They will take all manner of abuse, so you won’t be coming back for a new one any time soon.

Complete your look with some pimp shoes. Our mountain bike shoes are SPD ready and braced for speedy cross-country action. And with a pair of kicks like the Defroster Trail shoes, you can head out into the cold without worrying about catching a chill before your turkey dinner.

The perfect bike needs the perfect bottle – you can’t cut corners now. A great stocking filler, our bottles have some beautiful designs and are totally leakproof. The Chromatek models even have a special patented liner to keep your chosen poison cold.

You can really refine your Fuse’s looks with some quality grips, designed to perform under pressure and outstrip the rigours of cross-country riding, while also adding a personal touch to your pride and joy.

Lastly, keep carving up the trails after the sun goes down with our powerful lights – nothing is more exhilarating! Our powerful Flux series makes sure you can see and be seen at all times, they’re basically a small vehicle light for your bike. Combined with the waterproof Flashback Taillight, which you can stick on any bit of kit, you can max it out on the Fuse all day and into the night.
