the ultimate party bike.

An introduction to the Fuse family:

An all-new aggressive geometry is redesigned to make the Fuse a proper trail bike. Compared to its predecessor, its reach is lengthened 20mm, head angle slackened to 66.5°, seat angle steepened to 74° and standover reduced as much as 52mm. Think of it as a Stumpjumper without the squishy bits.

The new Fuse is available in two different alloy frames, M4 and A1. The Fuse Comp 29 is made from Specialized's premium M4 alloy. M4 alloy is stronger and allows for thinner tubes, therefore making a lighter frame that's just as strong as the classic A1 alloy found in the Fuse 27.5. The new frames also have more seatpost insertion depth that allow for longer dropper posts. They can also take 29 or 27.5+ wheels, with clearance to fit either 29x2.6 or 27.5x2.8 tyres. No weird standards here, either. All Fuse frames have Boost 110/148 hub spacing, a threaded bottom bracket and a tapered headtube.

The new Fuse has 130mm forks with reduced offset, which gives the bike a little more high-speed stability without going too slack on the head angle. With 1x drivetrains and dropper posts across the range, wide bars, short stems and updated Butcher and Purgatory tyres, the Fuse is a real ripper.

Single-speed able! The new M4 alloy frame (only available on the Fuse Comp 29 or M4 frameset) has sliding dropouts that give you 15mm of adjustability. This lets you tune the chainstay length to your preference. Run them short and snappy or long and stable. Sliding dropouts also let you run single-speed without any ugly tensioners. The brake mount moves with the dropout so you don't have to realign your caliper when adjusting chainstay length.

Focusing in on the 22' Fuse Comp 29er:

The Fuse Comp 29 punches way above its weight class thanks to a light-yet-burly M4 aluminium chassis, frame geometry that lends the bike both playfulness and capability, and parts that withstand a serious flogging.

"OH HECK YEAH" BY DESIGN

The Fuse is loaded with smart touches. The wide-diameter down tube boosts stiffness. The low-slung top tube improves maneuverability. And while this Fuse’s 29x2.6 tyres give it a precise, nimble feel, the M4 aluminium frame is also compatible with 27.5+ wheels and tyres.

PERFECTLY DIALED

If you fail to nail the geometry, advanced materials and innovative designs still amount to nothing on the trail. Fuse gets it right. The long reach gives you even weight distribution. The slack head angle lends confidence on sketchy descents. The steep seat angle makes quick work of steep climbs.
