This Trek Fuel EX 8 Plus is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
Trek's Fuel EX 8 has always been one of our favourite trail bikes. Constantly evolving to keep up with the times the Trek Fuel EX 8 Plus is a great new variant of the Fuel EX platform which still offers a versatile ride but with the added fun factor of 27.5" wheels and mid-fat 2.8" tyres. Compared to the 29" standard Fuel EXs this Plus version will offer a bit more grip in the tech sections but give away a little straight line speed.
The Trek Fuel EX 8 Plus offers a Fox Rhythm 34 Float fork, Fox Performance Float rear shock with RE:aktiv damping, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain and a Bontrager Drop Line seatpost as upgrades over the Fuel EX 5 Plus.
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 140mm too giving even more control whilst remaining an efficient pedalling system.
The Fuel EX 8 Plus's 27.5" wheels are shod in 2.8" tyres which offer an awesome level of mechanical grip which is perfect for technical challenges.
Trek's Fuel EX 8 Plus is perfect for UK trail riders who want to excel in the technical zones but still want a versatile platform for all day rides.
