Description

Trek's Fuel EX has always been one of our favourite trail bikes. Constantly evolving to keep up with the times the Trek Fuel EX8 Eagle is bang up to date and capable of all types of riding from XC marathons to epic descents.

The Trek Fuel EX 8 features a Fox Rhythm 34 Float fork, Fox Performance shock with RE:aktiv damper and Bontrager Drop Line seatpost as upgrades over the Fuel EX7. The Fuel EX8 XT features a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain and SRAM Guide R brakes.

The latest incarnation of the Fuel EX frame features a steeper head angle for better stability on steeper pitches, a straighter downtube which massively increase frame stiffness, Knock Block frame protection to guard against spinning bars and forks in the event of an accident and the Control Freak cable management system for a neat and tidy setup. The suspension system still uses key tech such as ABP, Full Floater, EVO Link but the leverage ratio has been modified to better suit the current range of shocks. Front and rear suspension travel is 130mm too giving even more control whilst remaining an efficient pedalling system.

The Fuel EX 8's 29" wheels offer superb stability in technical sections and are fast rolling for open tracks. This makes for a super versatile machine.

Trek's Fuel EX 8 Eagle is perfect for UK trail riders who find themselves on a wide variety of terrain from XC, through Trail and nudging All Mountain. Fuel EX is versatile and capable, perfect for the most challenging trails and all day spins.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard.

Sizing information is provided as a general guide only. This is based on the average rider riding the bicycle in the style for which it is intended. This takes no account of a rider's personal proportions, physique, flexibility and biomechanics. If your height places you on, or near, a bicycle size step then we recommend you consider both sizes. All bicyles offer a range of handlebar and saddle adjustment which will enable you to fine tune your riding position once the correct size has been established. If you are unsure on sizing, we strongly recommend you visit our store so we can assist you. Pedal On offers advice and information on sizing in good faith, the final decision and resposibility on which size to purchase is your's.
