The Fuzz has been thrashed and flipped by Sam Pilgrim and it's proved itself in the racing environment too, taking podiums at major DH events worldwide.


It's been ridden at the WC and IXS DH Cup by Polish National Champ, Slawek Lukasik and fast boys from the Swiss Downhill Syndicate. The geometry is truly modern - it's low, slack, has a tight rear end and a long front triangle. The 4-bar Horst link suspension has a significant amount of rearward axle movement which helps to absorb square faced bumps. There is also a fair amount of anti-squat built into the design to counter pedal-induced bob. The shock, which is the heaviest part of the frame is tucked away near the BB to keep the centre of gravity as low as possible.
