Overview

New for 2017, the Fluid HT+ is the latest addition to the Fluid family. Featuring a responsive aluminum hardtail frame designed around 650B Plus and 26" Plus wheels, the Fluid HT offers a fast and efficient ride with capable handling. With extra-wide 2.8" tires and modern trail geometry including a short, stiff rear end, the Fluid HT+ will have you snapping around corners, exploding up technical climbs, and flowing through rocky, rooty descents. Take your trail riding to the next level with the Fluid HT+.

To some, it’s about carving endless ribbons of buff, flowy singletrack. To others, it’s the challenge of punchy trails, technical climbs and off-camber roots. Yes, yes and yes.
