Upgrade lands X-Fusion suspension for the UK
X-Fusion was established in 1999, rear shocks were chosen as the first product area to develop, a sector that X-Fusion knew they could make great improvements to with benefits for the heart of any full suspension bike. With a proven track record of performance and reliability the product line moved into a range of suspension forks and for 2011 the new HILO seat post.
2011 product line is concise but well thought out and caters for all MTB disciplines from XC through to Downhill racing. Full details on the product line at X-Fusion[/B].
X-Fusion forged it’s success in the heavily contested OE specification sector where brands live or die by build quality and reliability. Highly respected the X-Fusion line will be seen on even more key brands in 2012 including Specialized, Cube, Cannondale and Ghost. X-Fusion are now also pushing into the aftermarket. The brand’s key selling point is shown as best quality with good value. X-Fusion offers a real alternative in the suspension market for performance seeking riders.
UPGRADE is pleased to be adding X-Fusion to our catalogue for 2011. First product is expected to land in May. Upgrade’s Damian Mason says “X-Fusion is an excellent range of product that complements very well 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 R&D center and all the product manufactured to world class standards in their own Taiwan facility.
Service of suspension components is key to the success of any brand in this sector. Upgrade is setting up the UK service center for all X-Fusion products, taking over from the previous European service center in Germany who are 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.
