Upgrade brings X-Fusion suspension to the UK

Upgrade has secured UK distribution rights for the X-Fusion suspension brand, which is increasingly being specced by OEM manufacturers, including Specialized, Cube, Cannondale and Ghost.

The 2011 product line is concise, though caters for all MTB disciplines from XC through to downhill racing.

Upgrade’s Damian Mason says “X-Fusion is an excellent range of product that complements our frame offerings from DMR and Kinesis. We are really excited about working together with the X-fusion team going forward. They have a strong US based research and development centre with product manufactured to world class standards in its own Taiwan facility."

Upgrade is setting up the UK service centre for all X-Fusion products, taking over from the previous European service centre in Germany, which is training Upgrade’s mechanics in every aspect of the products. Upgrade will carry a full line of spares and tools and offer a fast turn-around service.

X-Fusion’s suspension line kicks off with the Enix 100 and 120mm air fork, retailing at £299.99. The most talked about product, however, is the range topping vengeance 160mm air fork at £649.99. If your customer is after an adjustable seatpost, X-Fusion also manufactures The Hilo post that comes in at £199.99.
