This Trek Fuel EX 9.8 27.5 Plus 2017 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.

The all-new Fuel EX 27.5 Plus brings plus-sized fun to full-suspension capability with extra tyre volume for greater traction.

For the all-new Fuel EX 27.5 Plus, Trek re-engineered their hugely popular Chupacabra tyre to a lighter and more nimble 27.5 x 2.8? size. Paired with a 40mm rim, this setup strikes the fine balance between fat-bike traction and trail-bike agility. Novice and intermediate riders will instantly feel the increased stability and confidence-inspiring traction on any trail. Advanced riders will find themselves clearing more technical trail features than ever thanks to the added grip in extreme situations like ultra-steep blown-out climbs and rowdy off-camber roots.

To go along with all the extra fun, Trek added more travel to the Fuel EX family, with 130mm out back and 140mm up front. Trek still use proven suspension technology, including ABP, Full Floater, and RE:aktiv for a chassis that’s ready for the plus-sized party. Boost hub spacing makes room for those meaty tyres and allows us to keep the chainstays to a playful 433mm.

A new frame features a slightly slackened geometry to better suit the playful nature of the bike. Fuel EX 27.5 Plus also features an all-new Straight Shot downtube for increased stiffness. This is the stiffest Fuel EX frame ever made, and it won’t flinch when you charge through technical terrain. For an added measure of protection, Trek developed Knock Block steerer stop, which keeps the fork crown or handlebar controls from hitting the frame. The new Fuel EX Plus frames come with Control Freak internal routing system for a versatile, easy to use setup, while Mino Link allows riders to further fine-tune their geometry.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard. A suspension pump can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
