The All-new Trek Fuel EXe eMTB is a new breed of mountain bike
While other electric bikes keep chasing more power, higher torque and bigger batteries, the Fuel EXe brings natural-feeling assist with a system thats so compact and quiet, you might forget its there. Its one of the lightest eMTBs on the market at around 18.14 kg, so it handles more like a regular trail bike, but with a smooth-feeling boost thats not as intense as many traditional eMTBs.
Trek have partnered with German robotics manufacturer TQ to develop the Fuel EXe hand-in-hand with their new HPR 50 motor. Their patented harmonic pin ring transmission is smaller, quieter and more dependable than traditional e-bike motors that use gears and belts. Once your you experience the serene sound and feel of riding Fuel EXe, e-biking will never be the same!
The 360 watt hour battery provides power for around four hours. Its concealed in the downtube, but its still super easy to remove. Theres also an optional 160 watt hour Range Extender that fits in the bottle cage for an easy 40% increase in range.
The Trek Central app seamlessly connects with Fuel EXe for customised motor tuning, activity tracking and real-time range calculations.
The Fuel EXe rolls on 29-inch wheels with 140 mm of rear travel paired with a 150 mm fork. The geometry is fine-tuned for stability on steep, high-speed descents and an efficient pedalling position for climbing.
