The Fuji Tahoe 1.1 27.5" mountain bike is one part business and one part pleasure. To tackle the trails, you a need a bike that has appropriate components, technology and trail-specific design. With all three key areas covered, the Fuji Tahoe 1.1 makes the most of the well-balanced 27.5" wheelbase and footprint to deliver light and crisp trail performance. Now, you can spend less time thinking about your bike and more time enjoying the ride.
27.5" mountain bikes are said to be the perfect size for mid-height riders and for good reason. With an improved angle of attack, a 27.5" wheel will roll over faster and easier than a 26-inch wheel. The larger the wheel, the smaller the obstacle relative to the wheel. Sounds easy enough and when you encounter a log or a rock, you quickly learn that this is true. Also, the 27.5" wheel offers improved agility. It's easy to get off the ground and get some air, and it's easier to maneuver through winding and tight singletrack lined with precarious branches. Plus, the 27.5" wheel size yields a lower center of gravity for more stability by way of the relative position of the bottom bracket to the wheel axle. Your body will feel more comfortable and centered as a result. The Tahoe is designed with Fuji's light and strong A2-SL custom-butted aluminum tubes, which add crucial support against trail impact while improving front end handling. The Tahoe is outfitted with a high-quality Rock Shox Recon Gold TK Solo Air fork with 100mm of travel and a remote handlebar lockout for climbing, road riding, or just firming up the front end. The frame and fork are equipped with powerful Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes and a set of massive 180/160mm rotors.
The Tahoe 1.1 features a dynamite drivetrain. A custom Shimano Deore, SLX and XT component mix combine to deliver quick shifts and comfortable cadences. Shimano SLX i-spec shifters effortlessly click through the 2x10 gearing and push the chain up and down the forgiving 11/36 Shimano cassette and 38/24 SLX crankset. 20 speeds means there's a gear for nearly every grade. Finding the perfect gear means you'll stay moving forward and in control.
Light and fast Oval 400 CL 27.5" wheels and Schwalbe Rocket Ron Performance 2.25" width tires offer dependable traction on fire roads and singletrack. Finally, a 5mm rise cross country handlebar with a gentle 9 degree sweep keep your body forward for improved frontend control.
