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, oversize hydroformed down tube, and Boost spacing front and rear, the Auric takes confidence to a new level when railing berms and tackling technical descents. Up front, the SR Suntour SF17 fork provides the stiffness and response needed to navigate through chunky trail, and the Monarch RL rear shock is supple enough for pedaling efficiency while maintaining big-hit performance. The Shimano 20-speed drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes provide durable shifting and plenty of stopping power via the 180mm rotors. Rounding out the entry-level build is the Oval Concepts 200AM wheelset and additional cockpit parts from Oval.
