You gotta get up to get down, and the Fuji Auric 27.5 3.1 crushes steep terrain with speed and agility. Thanks to a responsive four-bar MLink suspension, this 160mm-travel all-mountain shred sled floats through big hits and gnarly lines, but never shies from earning its way to the top. With added muscle in all the right places—from the tapered head tube, oversize hydroformed down tube, to Boost spacing front and rear—the Auric takes confidence to a new level when railing berms and tackling technical descents. The RockShox Lyrik RCT3 Dual Position Air fork provides the stiffness and response needed to navigate through chunky trail, and the Monarch Plus RC3 DebonAir rear shock is supple enough for pedaling efficiency while maintaining unbeatable big-hit performance in an air shock. The SRAM X1 11-speed drivetrain and Guide RS brakes provide positively robust engagement and plenty of stopping power via the 203mm front and 180mm rear rotors. Rounding out the no-compromise-build is a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost, wide DT Swiss M1700 Spline Two 30 wheelset, and cockpit parts from Oval Concepts.
