Every year bikes get lighter, skinnier, and more efficient - giving you less, less and less. Specialized took a different approach with the Fuse - and its sister, the Ruze - to give you MORE: More traction, more flotation, and more fun. Rolling on 27.5 x 3.0 tires, the Ruze Expert delivers unprecedented traction and stability so you can shred the loosest, rockiest, most off-camber trails you can find. (Hint: this bike also excels in deep, loose, round gravel of river-bottom trails where every other mtn bike fails.)
The strong yet light M4 alloy frame features Specialized's exclusive Diamond Stay technology to accommodate plus-sized wheels & tires while maintaining the short chainstays that keep a bike playful and fun. Specs are dialed with a Manitou Magnum fork, WTB Scraper i45 wheels, and a 1x10-speed drivetrain. There's even a dropper post for maximum control when things get rowdy. Get on a Ruze and find out what you've been missing.
Like every bike in our rental fleet, this Ruze Expert has been meticulously maintained by Ken's professional mechanics - the idea was to give every renter such a great ride, they'd want to buy one! Now that we can't rent bikes, and the whole industry is running out of affordable mtn bikes for sale, we've decided to offer some from our rental fleet, for sale. Grab one before they're gone!
