An all-time classic, the 27.5” Fuzz has been around for a while and has proven itself in the world of racing, pro freeriding and everyday use. It’s been flipped and whipped by world class athletes at Freeride events around the globe, while it’s also a favorite for rental stations! It's easier to throw around than the 29” version making it a better choice for riders who want a more agile bike. It's low and slack and has chainstays that are proportional in length to the frame size. The eccentric headset allows for 16mm of reach adjustment. The Horst Link suspension uses a floating shock design thanks to which it was possible to achieve a low centre of gravity. Significant rearward movement in the axle path smooths out square faced impacts.
