While every road bike brand has been quick to ride the disc brake revolution, most have been focussed on targeting the upper price spectrum of the market.
However, budget conscious endurance riders and gravel grinders will rejoice with the introduction of BH’s new Fusion and Fusion Disc road bikes, which offer both lightweight, carbon fiber construction and a disc brake option at an affordable price.
The Fusion’s frameset mimics many of the features of the Spanish brand’s upper level Quartz road bike, albeit with slightly trickled-down carbon fiber composition, full carbon fiber tapered fork and internal cable routing.
Yet, despite its more cost effective carbon lay-up, according to BH the Fusion frame weighs in at an impressive 900g in a size medium.
Both Fusion models feature Shimano’s bulletproof 105 groupset, along with FSA’s Omega compact crankset.
As for the Fusion Disc, BH decided to use flat mount, mechanical Shimano disc brake calipers as a means of keeping the costs down, as well as quick-release axles.
Both models are available in four sizes, and two new striking color ways.
As far as pricing is concerned, word of the Fusion is so new, that BH has yet to set pricing for the US market.
However, according to their Spanish website, pricing for the caliper brake version of Fusion is £1600, and £2000 for its disc brake equipped sibling.
