Calm under pressure, yet deft and precise, the Fuse is an entirely different kind of hardtail. Featuring an all-new longer, lower, and rowdier chassis and 27.5x2.3 wheels and tires, the Fuse 27.5 handles rough, sketchy descents and steep, technical climbs with absolute confidence.

ROWDY BY DESIGN

The Fuse is loaded with smart touches. The wide-diameter down tube boosts stiffness. The low-slung top tube improves maneuverabilty on tight trails. And while this Fuse’s 27.5x2.3 tires give it ample traction and stability, it’s also compatible with 29er wheels and tires.

PERFECTLY DIALED

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 sketchy descents. The steep seat angle makes quick work of steep climbs.

  • 130-millimeters of suspension courtesy of an X-Fusion fork.
  • Highlights include hydraulic disc brakes, a dropper post, and single-ring drivetrain.
  • Durable 29mm interal width alloy wheelset.

Why buy a Specialized?

The frame is the single most important factor in a bike's ride quality. While there are many other components involved, the frame is what ties it all together and ultimately determines how well a bike rides. Specialized makes the highest quality, most sorted frame on the market. The fit and finish is excellent and they ride amazing.

Why buy from us?

We're your local Christchurch bike shop. When you buy from us you get the best support, fast. You don't have to email customer service and hope for a response, just come in and see us. We keep a ton of parts in stock and have mechanics that are trained up on all the latest tech in a modern workshop.

Free General Service

Bikes need regular maintenance but we're here to help. To guarantee that your new bike stays running sweet, we offer a free General Service on all bikes that we sell. Worth $99, we'll do your first one for free at 6 months of ownership. Note that while the General Service labour is free, additional labour or parts cost extra. Bookings are required.

Best warranty, fastest turnaround

Specialized is confident with their quality and has one of the bike industry's best warranties out there. Frames and Roval wheels have a lifetime warranty if you register your bike within 90 days of purchase. The warranty is also transferrable to a subsequent owner, who then get 2 years from the original retail purchase date. Specialized NZ headquarters is based in Christchurch, which gives us the best access to parts and we can even process warranties the same day in some cases.
