The Fluid Full Suspension lets you choose your perfect trail weapon. Every bike in the Fluid family is designed around its respective wheel size – no geometry compromises here. With trail-tuned A.R.T. suspension the Fluid snaps around corners, explodes up technical climbs, and flows through rocky, rooty descents. This truly is a bike for those looking to take their trail riding experiences to the next level. Find your sweet spot with the Fluid.

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.
