The new Trek Fuel EX brings all of the latest advancements in mountain biking together in one sweet package that's perfect for the rider who wants one trail bike that does it all.
Trek's Fuel EX Now featuring 130mm of rear travel paired with a longer 140mm-travel fork gives just the right amount of suspension for more confidence on bigger hits without sacrificing efficient climbing.
Just like the suspension travel, Fuel EX's geometry hits the sweet spot. Compared to previous versions of Fuel EX, the new model is longer and slacker, making it feel more stable on descents. It also has a steeper seat tube angle that puts the rider in a more efficient pedalling position.
A new fixed lower shock mount that makes for stronger chainstays and greater efficiency too and the Fuel EX 8 features a RE:aktiv rear shock for excellent traction and confidence.
Medium and larger bikes come with 29-inch wheels because they roll fast and plough over rough stuff. The x-small size comes with 27.5-inch wheels, making it easier for shorter riders to control and offering better standover clearance. Small is the only size offered with either 27.5" or 29" wheels-that's because Trek's research has shown that riders who fit this size tend to be split pretty evenly on their wheel size preference.
All Fuel EX models come ready to shred with dropper posts, wide-range 1x drivetrains, and grippy 2.6" tyres.
Frame details like Mino Link and Control Freak make it easy to run a clean, custom set up.
Trek's Fuel EX, a true trail classic just got better.
