The Fluid HT 3 features a new progressive aluminum frame design to create the ultimate singletrack adventure hardtail.
The Fluid HT 3's unique combination of long reach, slack head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a forward weight distribution with its long wheelbase to achieve its playful, capable performance. This allows more powerful pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending so you can confidently navigate the trail.
With frames designed around 27.5 or 29" wheels depending on frame size, the Fluid HT 3 features a reliable 120mm SR-Suntour XCM32 suspension fork and Shimano Deore 10-speed drivetrain for smooth, confident shifts. Control and confidence are optimized on descents with a Tranz-X 130mm Stealth dropper post and Tektro HD-M275 hydraulic disc brakes.
- 6061 DB alloy Fluid frame, space for up to 2.6" tires
- Updated Trail geo based around 120mm travel forks
- Internal routing for shifter and brake cables
- Shimano Deore 1x10 drivetrain
- Tektro HD-M275 hydraulic disc brakes
- Schwalbe Smart Sam 2.6" tires
Wider than standard yet narrower than fat, plus-size rims and tires hit the sweet spot in grip, stability, and speed, giving you more confidence on technical terrain. Compared to a standard tire you’ll feel grip in places you wouldn’t expect thanks to a bigger contact patch and greater rollover clearance. More air volume allows lower tire pressures which softens bumps and increases float on sand or snow. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, the benefits of plus-size tires and rims will amplify your mountain biking fun.
