The 2017 Fuji Nevada 1.7 - Where Comfort and Control Come Together
Don’t solidify your weekend plans just yet. The 2017 Fuji Nevada 1.7 29er might change everything. Fuji packs a versatile punch in this very affordable hardtail mountain bike. With a premium build, features, and components its $599.99 MSRP pricetag is an absolute steal. Fuji has built this bike with both comfort and functionality in mind. Borrowing frame geometry from their highest end models, you will experience competitive trail comfort and performance. But the Nevada doesn’t stop there. This bike is fit for a casual ride around the neighborhood or a commute to work as well. Made with versatility in mind, you can ride this bike wherever your heart desires. 29 inch wheels will smooth over rocks and roots to make a technical trail feel like a smooth road and the hardtail build allows for great control. With all of that in mind, let’s take a closer look at what makes this bike so desirable.
The Fuji A2-SL custom aluminum frame provides both durability and control. On the back end, the Fuji A1-SL alloy rear triangle is designed to give you the most out of your ride. This rear triangle is highlighted by S-bend chainstays that have been designed to reduce frame vibration. This will allow an increase in your pedal performance while limiting muscle fatigue on your roughest ride. The frame also features a PowerCurve down tube which offers huge support for trail impact and improves handling. This frame has your best interests in mind and does not compensate on performance or comfort.
The fork is an SR Suntour 29er with a hydraulic lockout. Lock up the fork and enjoy steady, easy climbs with increased pedaling efficiency, or let it loose and use up all 100mm of travel to eat up rocks and roots.
- 3x8 Shimano Altus/Acera drivetrain
The Acera rear derailleur has eight gears for virtually unlimited flexibility in ride styles. 24 total speeds free you up to ride in any style or condition. Uphill climbs can be conquered with ease. Technical trails can be mastered. Even a straightaway road will feel like you are putting in no work at all. This great drivetrain is controlled by Rapid Fire speed shifters to make your shifting faster and easier than ever before, giving you total control over your environment.
- Tektro mechanical disc brakes
Disc brakes have been regarded as the obvious superior to rim brakes, offering more responsiveness and control. Tektro brakes offer that and more. They are incredibly user friendly and will take no time getting used to. With 180/160mm rotors, your braking will be responsive and smoother than ever. Additionally, these brakes tout elite stopping power in both wet and dry conditions.

It is ideal for urban riding and intermediate trails, but is so versatile that you won’t find a ride it can’t handle.
