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 trailhead to the ride home. And of course, you'll be in need of the Ruze Expert with our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System.
The revolutionary design of this system puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And the Expert blends the aforementioned characteristics with durable and dependable components, like powerful SRAM DB3 hydraulic disc brakes, one-by 11-speed GX shifting, and fan-favorite RockShox Reba RL fork. 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.
