Specialized Fuse Comp 6Fattie
Take a look at the world's strongest man, and you're not going to find some chiseled Adonis. You're going to find someone who has more volume. Behind the "extra" surface area, though, there's a man that can dominate a caber toss and run down the tarmac with a plane in tow. Mathematically, it could be broken down as more volume + versatility = dominance, and that's exactly what's at play with the Fuse Comp. Our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System uplifts the Fuse to have more traction and control than any hardtail before it, while its no-nonsense build is custom spec'd to get the job done, no matter how rugged, technical, or hair raising that job might be.

Specialized Men's Epic Hardtail Comp
Cross country courses are nothing like they used to be. Today's tracks have more in common with trail riding than the pancake flat NORBA courses of yesteryear. For this reason, we threw away the hardtail rulebook and drafted our own chapter to create the Epic Hardtail Comp. We took a revolutionary new frame design and spec'd it specifically for the rigors of racing contemporary XC courses. It's one of the lightest frames we've ever made, tipping the scales around 1175g. And to make it this light, we built the entire frame from our superlative FACT 11m carbon fiber, and then we took some cues from our road bikes. We borrowed the Rider-First Engineered concept that originated with the Tarmac. Now, the frame design applies specificity to every tube size and carbon layup for every frame size. This creates the optimal balance of rigidity, weight, and responsiveness, so every frame, regardless of size, performs just as we intended. We've also tweaked the geometry for more speed and stability by slacking-out the head tube angle, lengthening the top tube, and correcting the seat tube angle. This way, it feels more planted then ever, and frankly, it's stupid fast. We also widened the rear spacing to 12x148mm and included internal split-housing cable routing. For the build, this Epic takes value to new heights with a custom-tuned RockShox Reba RL fork, 1x11 SRAM GX shifting, and fast rolling Roval Control alloy wheels. - By pairing a FACT 11m carbon fiber frame with our XC 29 Geometry, this Epic places a focus on revolutionary tube angles and extremely light overall weight for explosive speed and nimble handling on the race circuit. For good measure, we also gave it 148mm rear spacing and all-new triangulated post-mount brake mounts. - The RockShox Reba RL 29 fork offers up 90/100mm of smooth travel, while an easily accessible compression and rebound adjusts permit you to customize the feel according to the terrain at hand. - One-by 11-speed shifting is provided by a durable SRAM GX component spec.
Specialized Fuse Comp Carbon 6Fattie/29
If you have yet to ride a bike with a 6Fattie Wheel/Tire system, Specialized challenges you to do so without walking away with a stoked-out grin. Case in point is the Fuse Comp Carbon. It lives by the philosophy that more tire volume results in more speed. It might be a claim that sounds flipped on its head, but one ride and it'll have you shouting this sentiment from the rooftops. Specialized's 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And with the philosophy of the design out of the way, it came time to solidify its place as a proper trail machine. This system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand. And to solidify itself as a proper trail machine, this Fuse places a focus on blending durability, performance, and utility. To do so, they spec'd it with a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and a bump-smoothing RockShox Reba RL fork with 120mm of buttery-smooth travel. Lastly, utility is finally covered for the first time in Fuse history with the addition of integrated storage at the down tube via the SWAT Door. - FACT 10m carbon fiber frame construction blends stiffness with light weight to form the pinnacle of efficiency, while internal routing tubes and integrated an SWAT Door create a tidy aesthetic and zero-hassle storage. - A RockShox Reba RL fork handles suspension up front with ease, soaking up bumpy terrain with 120mm of plush travel. - SRAM's 11-speed GX groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades. On top of this, the one-by setup is notorious for being next to impossible to drop a chain with, plus it provides a significant weight savings in comparison to a standard two-by setup.
Specialized Fuse Expert Carbon 6Fattie

The lightweight FACT 10m carbon fiber frame construction blends stiffness with low weight to form the pinnacle of efficiency, while internal routing and an integrated SWAT Door create a tidy aesthetic and zero-hassle storage. Up front, the Rhythm FLOAT 34 is the latest trail-taming fork from the masterminds at Fox, offering two-position sweep adjust and 120mm of plush travel. On top of a plush fork, the build features Specialized's 6Fattie Wheel System in order to put out more traction, more flotation, and better handling without sacrificing anything on climbs. The 6Fattie Purgatory and Ground Control tires feature a perfectly sized contact patch for life-changing levels of traction and control while cornering, all without sacrificing climbing efficiency or descending prowess. And with a GRID casing protecting the sidewalls, these tires will stand up to anything the trail can throw at them. To solidify itself as a proper trail machine, the Fuse places a focus on blending durability, performance, and utility. To do so, Specialized spec'd it with a bulletproof 1 x 11-speed SRAM drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability. Lastly, utility is finally covered for the first time in Fuse history with the addition of integrated storage at the down tube via the SWAT Door.
