You don't need all the trail fixings to benefit from more traction, increased control, and elevated confidence. Nope. You just need what you know will work, day-in and day-out, from the trail head to the ride home. And of course, you'll be in need of the Ruze Expert 6Fattie with our all-new 6Fattie Wheel System. Its revolutionary design delivers the aforementioned in spades, but the Expert blends the aforementioned characteristics with durable and dependable components. Even better, every aspect of the bike has been tailored to meet women's needs on the trail, from the saddle to the standover to the crankarm length. The Ruze Expert is everything you need to hit the trail with more confidence and more speed.
When it came to construction, M4 Premium Aluminum proved to be the right material for the job, allowing a lightweight, durable frame with our Women’s Trail Geometry that’s equal parts snappy and efficient on climbs and descents, while maintaining an ultra-low standover. It also allowed us to incorporate our exclusive Diamond Stay that accommodates the 6Fattie Wheel System without compromising on our hallmark short chainstays thath provide unrivaled handling and climbing prowess.
A Manitou Magnum Comp 650+ fork pairs 100mm of smooth travel with adjustable rebound for maximum absorbency over harsh terrain and easy, on-the-fly adjustments to the damping to hit the perfect tune. And to make the tune even better, we gave the fork our Women's Custom Tune to better accommodate lighter riders.
Custom WTB Scraper i45 wheelset has a fat 45mm width and alloy construction for the perfect blend of speed and strength, which means that you'll experience less deflection, increased traction, and more stability—all at lower tire pressures.
650bx3.0" 6Fattie 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.
