Cross Country

At a glance

The 2016 Specialized Fuse Expert 6Fattie is an Cross Country mountain bike. It a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Fuse range of mountain bikes.

More volume means more speed. It might be a claim that sounds flipped on its head, but one ride on the Fuse Expert 6Fattie will have you shouting this sentiment from the rooftops. Our all-new 6Fattie Wheel System puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And to solidify itself as a proper trail machine, this Expert iteration of the Fuse places a focus on blending durability with performance. To do so, we spec’d it with strong alloy rims, a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and a plush Manitou fork with 120mm of smooth travel.

This Fuse is equally ready to take a beating and to hand one out to the trail.
