The Fuse Expert 29 thrives on the kind of technical trails that make other hardtails cry. The top-shelf Fuse Expert 29 brings all of that to play with its light-yet-burly M4 aluminum chassis and a component package that takes a beating and comes back for more.
- 130-millimeters of plush suspension, courtesy of a RockShox 35 Gold fork.
- NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain gives you single-ring simplicity, yet lets you tackle big climbs
without coughing up a lung.
- Stout Trail SL wheelset is light, yet fends off abuse.
- New Butcher GRID TRAIL offers improved cornering grip.
- TranzX dropper post increases the Fuse's maneuverability on steep descents.
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
