Here's proof you don't need tons of suspension travel to tackle challenging trails. Equipped with an all-new, longer, lower, and rowdier chassis, Specialized have added 27.5 x 2.8 wheels and tyres to the Fuse 27.5 to create a bike that lets you hit rocks and roots at speed with absolute control.
ROWDY BY DESIGN
The Fuse is loaded with smart touches. The wide diameter down tube boosts stiffness. The low-slung top tube improves manoeuvrability on tight trails. And while this Fuse's 27.5 x 2.8 tyres give it tons of traction and stability, it's also compatible with 29er wheels and tyres.
Fail to nail the geometry and advanced designs will 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 dodgy descents. The steep seat angle makes quick work of steep climbs.
- Plus-size tyres provide insane traction and stability on the choppiest trails

Shipping is FREE of charge on bikes (or orders containing bikes) over £499 within Mainland UK and £29.95 on orders containing bikes under £499.
We aim to ship bikes ordered before 12:00 on weekdays that same day with delivery estimated the following working day via DPD, this includes a timed hour slot and options to delay or nominate a neighbour.
Unlike many of our competitors, we only make available to purchase online bikes we actually have in stock here in our store − we don't ever remote warehouse or SIM feedstock with multiple day delays.
Furthermore, we aim to have all our bikes pre-built and available for immediate dispatch or for in-store collection, once you have ordered a bike from us one of our mechanics will package your bike into one of our custom-built boxes.
These extra-large boxes allow us to ship most bikes fully assembled but before we do so our mechanics will carry out a PDI (pre-delivery inspection) on the bike to ensure that before it's prepared for shipping everything is set up correctly, e.g., brakes, gear indexing etc.
Upon receiving your bike, you will simply need to take your new bike out of the box, turn and tighten the handlebars and fit one of the pedals (if your bike comes with pedals). In some instances, such as for road bikes, you may also need to attach the handlebars as they're too wide to simply be rotated so they'll be secured to the side of the frame with zip ties.
