If you want one bike that does it all, pick this one
Fuel EX is a full suspension bike that’s made to hit every trail, every day. From epic long-distance rides to rowdy local trails after work, Fuel EX’s balanced geometry and sweet-spot suspension set-up give you nerve for descents and heart for climbs. We don’t think you should have to choose just one mountain bike. But if you do, choose this one.
Any trail, any time
If you want to ride it, chances are Fuel EX can rip it. This bike’s always ready for more.
Rip the rough stuff
Unmatched traction and stability give you courage to charge wheel-eating rock gardens and rooty roller coaster drop-ins. Whatever you get yourself into, Fuel EX has your back.
Ride up for more
Fuel EX climbs as well as it descends, so when the trail points up, you can get to the top with enough left in the tank to rail whatever’s next.
Go with the flow
Whether it’s party laps with your pals, that random race you entered on a whim, or an all-day singletrack adventure with heroic climbs and dreamy serpentine descents, Fuel EX is there for all your ups and downs.
Stow it, don’t show it
OCLV Carbon Fuel EX models now feature internal frame storage to stow away your tools, gear and whatever other goodies you bring on the trail. The quick-access latch is secure yet easy to use with muddy, gloved fingers.
Whether you’re smashing blown-out corners or taking questionable lines down the chunky stuff, Fuel EX’s sure-footed composure lets you keep charging.
A better shock
Trek’s exclusive RE:aktiv damper is firm when you’re pedalling, but instantly gives way to soak up bumps. Select models take this concept further with RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft, which reacts to the terrain faster than any other shock available.
Dial in your bike
Want more stability on steep descents? Flip the Mino Link to get lower and slacker. Want to run your front brake on the right? Use Control Freak to keep those hoses tidy, no matter how you like your controls.
Fuel EX 8 is the ideal trail bike for riders who want a versatile full suspension ripper that makes soul-crushing climbs less painful, but can also huck rowdy trails. It hits the sweet spot of value and performance in our mountain bike line-up by combining high-end parts with a stout but light alloy frame.
It’s right for you if…
You’re cool with your wheels leaving the ground, but you also like to go the distance on marathon singletrack sessions. You want a bike that lets you crush any trail, and your priority is on the parts.
The tech you get
An alloy frame, 140 mm FOX Rhythm 34 fork and 130 mm of rear travel with an extra-efficient RE:aktiv damper. A Shimano XT 1×12 drive train with an extra-low 51-tooth climbing gear, plus a Bontrager Line dropper post.
The final word
Fuel EX 8 gives you added efficiency with Shimano’s latest, widest-range drive train and Trek’s unique RE:aktiv damper that provides firm pedalling support without giving up any plush compliance.
