Fuji Tahoe 1.3 27.5" Mountain Bike - 2014If you're looking for an ultra capable, ultra versatile mountain bike that is ready for serious cross-country riding, Fuji's Tahoe line delivers in spades. The Tahoe 27-5 1.3 boasts a more-than-impressive frame and fork with a list of components that feature the best technology the industry has to offer.
Tahoe's frame is A2-SL custom butted aluminum, a lightweight and ultra strong material that is shaped for efficiency, weight reduction, and excellent power transfer. The tapered headtube (an innovation in recent seasons) serves to improve steering response and strengthen the frame, and it houses a Fox 32 Float 27.5 Evolution fork with 100mm of travel. The fork features Fox's Climb/Trail/Descend feature which allows you to set the stiffness of the fork to match your situation. There's also a remote lock out which will help you climb, and a 15mm thru axle which means it can handle any landing.
Tahoe 27-5 1.3's drivetrain and brake setup is 100% Shimano. Fuji chose the Deore family with the exception of the rear derailleur, which is Deore XT, considered an upgrade from SLX. The Deore family uses the same technology as their pro-level Shimano counterparts, so they guarantee 20 speeds of perfect shifting under all conditions with little need for adjustment. The Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes provide excellent stopping response, plus amazing modulation so the slowing/stopping control not only stops immediately, but can help you control your trail shredding. And all of this rolls on a pair of alloy, double wall wheels which are light, strong, and able to take a total beating without bowing.
In the cockpit, Tahoe 27-5 1.3 boasts some of Oval's choice level componentry. A pair of Oval M250 alloy handlebars and M313 alloy stem are light and have a slight rise to keep you a bit more upright and in better control. The Oval M400 saddle has chromoly rails for extra durability, and a little flex where it counts.
And you may wonder about the 27.5" wheel size. Also known widely as 650b, this wheel size is a reaction to the 29er revolution, and appeals to those who may not have the height for 29" wheels or don't find such large wheels appealing. But as with the 29er, 650b has a larger wheel contact point means more knobs digging into more dirt, and the ability to roll over some serious obstacles. The Tahoe 27-5 1.3 is more than enough bike to tackle some very serious mountain biking. So whether it's an upgrade, or your first mountain bike, we predict that you'll begin a long and exciting chapter in your cycling experience.
