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 snaps around corners, claws up loose technical climbs, and flows down 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.
