You gotta get up to get down, and the Fuji Auric 27.5 crushes steep terrain with speed and agility. Thanks to a responsive four-bar MLink suspension, this 160mm 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 and 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 Yari RCT Solo Air fork provides the stiffness and response needed to navigate through chunky trail, and the Monarch RT3 DebonAir rear shock is supple enough for pedaling efficiency while maintaining big-hit performance. The Shimano 2 x 11-speed drivetrain and TRP hydraulic disc brakes provide durable shifting and plenty of stopping power via the 203mm front and 180mm rear rotors. Rounding out this build is a KS Drop Zone dropper seatpost, Oval Concepts 600AM wheelset, and additional cockpit parts from Oval.
