Things We Like

  • Wide 660mm handlebars
  • Heavily treaded 27.5” tires
  • Powerful Mechanical Disc brakes

Things We Don't Like

  • An Alloy frame instead of steel would have been a good feature at this price
Firefox Fusion 27.5D - 21 Speed Frame

The Firefox Fusion 27.5D, like its 26” variant is built on full Steel frame. It is a bit surprising to see a Steel frame on a MTB at this price as Alloy is what I expected to see. The frame geometry and build makes this bicycle capable of doing some rigorous riding on flat trails and bad urban roads. During the test ride the Steel frame was strong and could handle rough/bumpy roads and also had a geometry design which was comfortable to ride.

Being a hardtail the Fusion 27.5D comes with a Zoom entry-level suspension fork with a minimal 50mm travel. This minimal travel was nevertheless smooth in operation.

Firefox Fusion 27.5D - 21 Speed Design

This bicycle which I test rode came in a full Blue colour with Orange and Grey graphics. The bulked up bottom tube and triangular shaped top tube makes this bicycle look sharp. The welds were neat and weren’t too prominent at the joints. The matte finish paint job was of top quality and definitely made the bicycle look premium.

Firefox Fusion 27.5D - 21 Speed Gearing

Like its 26” variant, the Fusion 27.5D also comes with a 21-Speed Shimano Tourney at the front and rear as derailleurs. These are the most basic Shimano MTB components there is but for short urban rides and flat trails this gearing performance is sufficient. Some minor tuning periodically and these gears will give you constant smooth gear shifting. The Shimano EF500 trigger shifters were easy and comfortable to use.

Firefox Fusion 27.5D - 21 Speed Brakes and Steering

The stopping power on this 27.5” hardtail MTB is taken care of by a pair of JAK branded Mechanical Disc brakes. These brakes are an upgrade from the V-brakes seen on the 26” Fusion and were powerful in stopping amidst traffic and even on flat muddy surfaces.

The 660mm MTB handlebar was wide and gave optimum control for the rider when riding through fast paced flat trails and also when maneuvering through traffic on urban roads.

Firefox Fusion 27.5D - 21 Speed Wheels and Saddle

The Firefox Fusion comes with a stock 27.5” x 2.1” MTB tires. These tires have bulky treads and a uniform tread pattern which provided good traction on tar and non-tar surfaces. This wheelset was good for getting up to speed on urban roads as well as being balanced on flat trails.

The stock saddle from Firefox is not the most ergonomic in design but it is well cushioned so you wouldn’t need an extra gel or foam seat cover.

This Steel hardtail MTB has a comfortable frame geometry and wide 660mm handlebars. The powerful Mechanical Disc brakes made it easy to stop on flat trails and urban roads. The 27.5” tires were heavily treaded and fast rolling as well. Priced at Rs.17,200(as on 19th June 2019) the Firefox Fusion 27.5D - 21 Speed is an ideal choice for anyone looking to buy a bicycle for riding on flat trails during the weekend and on urban roads during the week.
